The far right column is for accessibility. Follow the link for the details, like with JFW or NVDA, etc.

Also, when books are brought into the Vital Source collection (or any other company), there is a big difference between good EPUB and bad PDF, so that handshake between content and reading systems should be considered.

The epubtest is testing with good EPUB.

Hello All,

Has anyone had an opportunity to experience VitalSource as a place for books that are accessible to JAWS users? I've got a request for a stat book published by Wiley, which is using VitalSource as its eBook platform.
