Would you like to make reading more accessible for all of your learners? Consider publishing your own ePub books or documents. This flexible format, which is considered the future of publishing, supports the customization needed to meet the needs of today's diverse readers. With ePub, learners can adjust text size, choose different fonts, change background combinations, and much more. In this session, join Dr. Luis Perez as he explores some of the advantages of ePub over the legacy PDF format. He will cover the different types of ePub documents you can create, when to use them, and how to get started creating your own ePub books using a number of free and low-cost tools available on Windows, Mac, or the iPad. Luis will also share a number of accessibility best practices that will improve every document you create, not only your ePub books, but your Microsoft Word and Google documents as well.

This presentation made me do a bit more thinking about how I create materials, and how I could change things up a bit to more to make my materials more accessible if I do have a student with a disability or who is an ELL.
