Around the world, more students than ever before are reliant upon digital learning tools and eTexts in order to continue their education under these exceptional circumstances.
As colleges and universities near the end of a truly remarkable spring semester, institution leaders around the world are preparing for the possibility that students may not be able to return to traditional, in-person learning experiences anytime soon due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
I’m proud of VitalSource’s commitment to excellence in accessibility and the recognition our team has recently received. In September 2019, we were awarded the DAISY Consortium Award for Accessibility in Publishing. In January 2020, we were ranked the #1 publishing platform by ASPIRE with an incredible score of 97%. I’m proud of this recognition because it highlights our team’s continuous commitment to providing tools with industry-leading accessibility features.
Since the conception of VitalSource, accessibility has been something we've held with utmost importance, but it's also something we know can always be improved upon.
Accessibility is about users, not standards.
