Benetech’s Global Certified Accessible (GCATM) is the first-ever program to certify the accessibility of e-books. Publishers committed to accessibility work with Benetech to enhance their production processes and achieve conformance to accessibility standards – both the EPUB Accessibility 1.0 Specification as well as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) for levels A, AA, and AAA. Once a publisher has made these process improvements, titles are certified on a go-forward basis.
EBSCO and Benetech are working together towards a future where all books are created in an accessible manner, enabling people with print disabilities to gain access to the written word and improving their reading and educational outcomes.
EBSCO would like to recognize the following publishers for their efforts toward an accessible future.
Below is a list of Benetech-Certified publishers as well as publishers currently seeking certification that are available through EBSCO eBooks. Click the publisher name to browse available e-book titles in EBSCOhost Collection Manager®.
