Following lunch, Rick Ferrie of Pearson discussed "Accessibility and Digital Publishing" and clearly pointed out that accessibility provides a competitive advantage due to an underserved global market, as illustrated in the numbers below.
Need for digital accessibility
Data reflecting the need for accessibility in applications and the web.
Ferrie explained that as books moved from print to digital, accessibility advocates expected things to get better. However, they did not (Flash has played a large role in lack of accessibility). Over the last three years aggressive advocacy has ramped up. As a response, content repositories such as NIMAC have grown and efforts such as Marrakesh Treaty have helped. However, Ferrie does not want to see repositories become permanent middlemen for the access of content.
