It appears to be PDF based so I would not hold my breath.

Hi Melanie,

I've not seen this, but electronic = access is definitely a misunderstanding
that I've been combating for some time now with faculty. Would definitely
be interested in hearing about this process and accessibility issues!

Has anyone seen books produced using this process? I wrote to them and
asked about accessibility. It concerns me because professors may think
electronic equals accessible.
