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.

Presentations from ‘XML for Standards Publishers’

Typefi was proud to sponsor the first ever XML for Standards Publishers symposium, hosted by the National Information Standards Organization (NISO) on Monday, 24 April 2017, at the Library of Congress in Washington DC.

Standards have traditionally been delivered as PDF documents. However, in a world where standards are increasingly monetised through derivative products, exchanged between partners, and consumed on mobile devices, PDF does not provide the flexibility needed to meet current and future market demands.

XML provides the key to solving all these issues and more!

Webinar recording: Accessible publishing made easy

Around 15% of the global population has a permanent disability[1], including approximately 285 million people with a visual impairment[2] and an estimated 700 million people with dyslexia, the most common form of learning disability[3].

Publishing content that is accessible to all your potential readers makes good sense for a variety of reasons – legal, ethical and commercial. However, the prospect can seem daunting. Where do you start? View the webinar recording and associated resources to learn more!
