18 May 2017 is Global Accessibility Awareness Day!

Since 2012, Global Accessibility Awareness Day has been held annually to raise awareness of the importance of making technology accessible to and usable by people with disabilities.

At Typefi, we believe that accessible publishing creates a better experience for all consumers, and we’re strongly committed to helping organisations produce accessible publications with minimal additional cost and effort. In fact, the World Report on Disability, published jointly by the World Health Organization and the World Bank, was composed and produced in accessible formats with Typefi.

Going deep with footnotes

Whether you’re explaining, referencing, or elaborating, footnotes and endnotes are an invaluable design tool. However, as with every little (and big) part of a page layout, someone has to format them—and that can mean a lot of pain, particularly since InDesign’s built-in footnotes feature leaves much to be desired.

In the March 2017 InDesign Magazine article Going deep with footnotes, world-renowned scripting engineer Peter Kahrel shows you what can be achieved—from basic footnotes, endnotes, and margin notes, through to table notes and complex multiple footnote threads—with workarounds and scripts.
