Typefi has been shortlisted as a finalist for the 2018 Accessible Books Consortium International Excellence Awards!
These annual awards, presented at the London Book Fair, recognise outstanding leadership and achievements in advancing the accessibility of digital publications for persons who are print disabled.
Two awards are presented each year, one to a publisher and one for a project initiative. Typefi is a finalist for the initiative award, alongside DAISY Forum of India, Dolphin Computer Access in the UK, and Fundação Dorina Nowill para Cegos in Brazil.
The winners will be announced at an awards ceremony to be held at the London Book Fair on 10 April 2018.
Typefi has promoted and facilitated accessible publishing since 2006. We strongly believe that making content accessible to everyone creates a better experience for all consumers, and also makes good sense for publishers for a variety of reasons—ethical, legal, and commercial.
Through built-in XML-based structural tagging and a powerful automation engine, Typefi enables users to automatically generate outputs in a wide range of accessible formats, from the same source content used for ‘standard’ publishing.
Raising awareness amongst our customers and their broader industries about best practices and compliance issues continues to contribute to increasing adoption of accessible formats.
Our team has a culture of “designing with accessibility in mind”, ensuring that publications are “usable” as well as “accessible”. We’re proud of our accessible publishing solutions, and believe they’ve made a real difference to people around the world.
