Greetings, ATHEN list:

I saw this potentially interesting webinar posted on the DAISY
Consortium's site, here. I've copied and pasted the details below:


Webinar Title: A tour of the forthcoming "Accessible Image Sample Book"
* Date: Thursday, February 6, 2014
* Time: 11:00 a.m Pacific (12:00 p.m. Mountain, 1:00 p.m.
Central, 2:00 p.m. Eastern)
* Presenters: Elaine Ober (Pearson) and Lucia Hasty (Rocky
Mountain Braille Associates)

The DIAGRAM Center's Content Working Group co-chairs, Elaine Ober
(Pearson) and Lucia Hasty (Rocky Mountain Braille Associates), will
demonstrate this free online resource that shows you what some of the
many options are for creating accessible versions of digital images
such as maps, bar charts, diagrams, mathematical expressions,
photographs, and more. Each of the seven chapters in the book shows a
different complex image in context of the book it came from, along
with helpful tips and the code used to provide the accessible image
in a digital book. See (and hear!) the different ways that an image
can be made accessible, including: short and long descriptions,
tactile graphics, MathML, sonification, audio description, and 3D
printing. The presenters will discuss how this resource can be used
as a guide when creating accessible images in your own digital books
and other digital publications.

This webinar is free and open to all. Register now:
