Leporini B. An accessible and usable e-book as educational tool: how to get it?. In: CVHI 2007 - Conference and Workshop on Assistive Technologies for Vision and Hearing Impairment (Granada, Spain, 28/08 2007). Proceedings, University of Glasgow, 2007.
Accessible electronic publications, such as electronic books, journals, and training tools, can be useful for disabled students and workers, particularly in an educational context. E-books are an important educational tool for supporting the real integration of disabled students into classroom activities or distance learning. This paper discusses the main features of an e-book which is appropriate for visually impaired readers. Developing useful educational e-books for blind and visually impaired students often requires the adaptation of e-texts for sighted readers and therefore a number of different factors needs to be considered. In this paper particular consideration is given to the development of e-books which are suitable for blind and visually impaired people.
