Topic: Designing an Accessible Open Textbook in Pressbooks

In this webinar, we cover the things you need to keep in mind when authoring textbooks in Pressbooks in order to ensure they are accessible in all formats. This webinar will highlight accessibility features of Pressbooks, describe accessibility statements and what to include in them, offer suggestions on how best to structure your book, demonstrate how to set up your book so it works for people using the print copy and digital copy, the importance of offering multiple formats, and other design choices that will improve the accessibility of your open textbook.
