Hi Patrick!
I saw a presentation on it at CSUN, and it appeared that it is possible to
create accessible e-books with the tool. We were also told that the tool
itself is quite accessible, but I do not know what the reality might be as I
have not yet tried it.

Hi all,

Wondering if anyone has any experience yet with the new iBooks Author
from Apple?

There's a presentation on our campus next week, so I'd like to know
if I should prepare celebration banners or pitchforks. :)

From the blurb:
"iBooks Author is a new app that allows anyone to create Multi-Touch
textbooks - and just about any other kind of book - for iPad. With
galleries, video, interactive diagrams, 3D objects, and more. We will
also demonstrate how to integrate iBooks Author textbooks with iTunes
U courses."

There is a brief but cheery accessibility section on the info page:

If anyone has more info, please chime in!
