Abstract
All of us read books for information, education or as a hobby, and with the technological development these days it is important that people who are print disabled have accessible books they can access and read easily. This report is based on my observations and experiences while working on producing accessible ebooks as a Digital Coordinator for my internship at Heritage Group Distribution. Most publishers in Canada are enrolled in the Benetech certification project which aims to produce born-accessible ebooks. This report is a compilation of hands-on experience and interviews conducted with people who are currently striving to produce accessible content. The aim is to understand the different production challenges and realize the importance of accessible ebooks as they create equal opportunities and make everyone feel included.
