conclusions
Conclusions
  • DAISY4=EPUB3 standards will enable publishers to publish in accessible formats that meet the requirements of everybody including persons with disabilities, people living with minority languages in the community, people living with indigenous languages that do not have written scripts and those who are illiterate.
  • DAISY4=EPUB3 standards will help alternative format production to share publications globally
  • Appropriate legal framework to guarantee the global sharing of accessible e-publications such as the “Proposal on an international instrument on limitations and exceptions for persons with print disabilities” need to be implemented as soon as possible (cf. WIPO SCCR/22/16)
