Abstract
Accessible enhanced eBooks benefit three groups: members of the general public who want eBooks to have more features, visually impaired audiences who want to purchase accessible books and not be limited by their choices or budget, and publishers who wish to reach a wider audience. This report delves into what makes accessible enhanced eBooks so different from standard eBooks, and current publishing industry perspectives on enhanced eBook publishing, with the primary goal of outlining how publishing houses can provide accessible eBook cookbooks to visually impaired audiences. Titles from Appetite by Random House are selected and used as a case study to provide an outline for how publishers can transition from publishing standard eBooks to publishing accessible enhanced eBooks.
