VitalSource Bookshelf a part of the Ingram Group, and is an ebook platform that allows you to access course materials whenever and wherever you choose—laptop, desktop or mobile device. You can download texts directly or access them via your browser.
Consumers who need content for specific needs will be able to search for content that is resizable, or has image descriptions, for example. And instructors can search through the Vital Source catalogue for course material identified with the accessibility icon.
We would love to see this ripple out in the library context, to make it easier for readers who need certain features to find the books they want to read.
Further, the use of good accessibility metadata will mean that in some contexts, your content will be more discoverable.
You can use a11y metadata to indicate if that your ebook is structured, is resizable, has alternative text on images, has ARIA semantics descriptors built as well as many other features that you may wish to highlight. Starting in as a project carried out by the trade association of Italian publishers, their goal has been to increase access to content for people with visual impairments.
It has been supported by the Italian government since the beginning. They have built a catalogue of 20 thousand accessible ebooks, with more than titles added per month. They are an excellent example of publishers and accessibility advocates working together with government support to leverage technology to plug a hole in the marketplace and to have a dramatic effect on the supply chain in that country.
Accessibility is Good for Your Image People will like you if you publish with accessibility in mind. They will, they really, really will like you! A clear commitment to accessibility can demonstrate that a business has a genuine sense of Corporate Social Responsibility. Making the commitment to sustainable, inclusive marketing and employment practices, can bring about a range of benefits, including enhanced brand image and reputation, increased sales and customer loyalty, improved workforce diversity, and a more inclusive society.
Conversely, neglecting to incorporate accessibility can mean that your products will be left behind, for example by not being able to adapt old or outdated content to new standards as they emerge; that would be the result of the cost of inaction. Branding Businesses that integrate accessibility are more likely to be innovative, inclusive enterprises that reach more people with positive brand messaging that meets emerging global legal requirements.
Making sure that the ebooks you produce are easy to use by disabled people will mean that it is also easier for every customer to use those ebooks. Think of this as a Usability Bonus. In physical environments, everyone takes advantage of lower curbs, automatic door openers, ramps, and other features provided for disability access.

Accessible ebooks are by nature flexible, allowing content to faithfully render across a broad spectrum of devices, platforms, assistive technologies, and operating systems, and this provides more options for everyone.
Showing that a company cares about accessibility engenders customer loyalty and generates repeat business.
Producing ebooks which everyone can use, regardless of their abilities, unites us by design. Empathy is important here; you will be helping create the feeling of belonging rather than feeling excluded.

The benefits for your reputation are particularly relevant. Furthermore, accessibility is becoming increasingly relevant in government procurement decisions, such as books for higher education. An initial investment means that publishers are in a position to produce ebooks that are accessible.
Once established, best practices help publishers become much more cost effective, by building accessibility into all their content, right from the start. The rest is business as usual. Creating a Diverse Workforce: People with Disabilities are Part of the Solution Part of the solution to the current lack of accessibility, is a cultural change. Instead of an optional feature, we need to start thinking of accessibility as the baseline. A Microsoft-funded investigation about the economic value of accessible technologies to companies suggests several advantages for employees from increased talent diversity, including a boost in productivity, and increased retention.
The best way to overcome accessibility barriers is by engaging people who have dealt with those challenges. This represents the opportunity to tap into a reservoir of potential that could enrich our society with new ideas and new interactions. Those who have had to adapt and overcome such challenges often prove to be the most positive, determined, and hardworking employees.
People with disabilities are innovative and resourceful, and have experience finding ways to prevent and eliminate accessibility barriers, for example finding workarounds to be able to consume specific content. Good inclusive design can begin with hiring people with disabilities to help find solutions. The design team must comprise individuals who can empathize with users who consume print content in non-traditional ways.
In-house accessibility experts can also do a thorough quality assurance test to ensure that all accessibility features have been included according to specification. Moreover, employing people with disabilities can give you access to a larger pool of potential customers. There are many benefits that come with accessibility, such as the good will that doing so creates, and the relationships you can build. You can become leaders in this.

On a corporate level, we need to make accessibility integral to the ebook, rather than something to be added later. Accessible content also brings about a societal benefit. Moreover, we live in an era of unprecedented challenges, from climate change to the weakening of liberal democracies. No doubt this message is implicit in the remarks to the same committee of the Reverend R.
Of course, there must be those who support the Communists. But this is really a matter of small concern, as the Hon Walter Robertson, Assistant Secretary of State for Far Eastern Affairs from , points out in his testimony before the same committee.
It must be the result of boredom, of too much security, or something of this sort. Other possibilities come to mind. These possibilities Kristol does not reject.
They are simply unthinkable, unworthy of consideration. More accurately, these possibilities are inexpressible; the categories in which they are formulated honesty, indignation simply do not exist for the tough-minded social scientist. I do not doubt that these attitudes are in part a consequence of the desperate attempt of the social and behavioral sciences to imitate the surface features of sciences that really have significant intellectual content.
But they have other sources as well.
Ergo, it is only problems of the latter sort that are important or real. At times this pseudo-scientific posing reaches levels that are almost pathological.
Consider the phenomenon of Herman Kahn, for example. Kahn has been both denounced as immoral and lauded for his courage. Kahn proposes no theories, no explanations, no factual assumptions that can be tested against their consequences, as do the sciences he is attempting to mimic. He simply suggests a terminology and provides a facade of rationality. When particular policy conclusions are drawn, they are supported only by ex cathedra remarks for which no support is even suggested e.
A simple argument proves the opposite. Premise 1: American decision-makers think along the lines outlined by Herman Kahn. Premise 2: Kahn thinks it would be better for everyone to be red than for everyone to be dead. Premise 3: if the Americans were to respond to an all-out countervalue attack, then everyone would be dead.
Conclusion: the Americans will not respond to an all-out countervalue attack, and therefore it should be launched without delay. Of course, one can carry the argument a step further.
Fact: the Russians have not carried out an all-out countervalue attack. It follows that they are not rational.
What is remarkable is that serious people actually pay attention to these absurdities, no doubt because of the facade of tough-mindedness and pseudo-science. In the fall of , for example, there was an International Conference on Alternative Perspectives on Vietnam, which circulated a pamphlet to potential participants stating its assumptions. The only debatable issue, it seems to me, is whether it is more ridiculous to turn to experts in social theory for general well-confirmed propositions, or to the specialists in the great religions and philosophical systems for insights into fundamental human values.
There is much more that can be said about this topic, but, without continuing, I would simply like to emphasize that, as is no doubt obvious, the cult of the experts is both self-serving, for those who propound it, and fraudulent. Obviously, one must learn from social and behavioral science whatever one can; obviously, these fields should be pursued as seriously as possible. But it will be quite unfortunate, and highly dangerous, if they are not accepted and judged on their merits and according to their actual, not pretended, accomplishments.
In particular, if there is a body of theory, well-tested and verified, that applies to the conduct of foreign affairs or the resolution of domestic or international conflict, its existence has been kept a well-guarded secret. In the case of Vietnam, if those who feel themselves to be experts have access to principles or information that would justify what the American government is doing in that unfortunate country, they have been singularly ineffective in making this fact known.
Now that we have achieved the pluralistic society of the Welfare State, they see no further need for a radical transformation of society; we may tinker with our way of life here and there, but it would be wrong to try to modify it in any significant way. With this consensus of intellectuals, ideology is dead. First, he does not point out the extent to which this consensus of the intellectuals is self-serving.
For example, the classical paradox of poverty in the midst of plenty is now an ever-increasing problem on an international scale. Whereas one might conceive, at least in principle, of a solution within national boundaries, a sensible idea of transforming international society to cope with vast and perhaps increasing human misery is hardly likely to develop within the framework of the intellectual consensus that Bell describes.
Having found his position of power, having achieved security and affluence, he has no further need for ideologies that look to radical change.
It is conceivably true that the bourgeoisie was right in regarding the special conditions of its emancipation as the only general conditions by which modern society would be saved.
In either case, an argument is in order, and skepticism is justified when none appears. Within the same framework of general utopianism, Bell goes on to pose the issue between Welfare State scholar-experts and third-world ideologists in a rather curious way. One may debate the question whether authoritarian control is necessary to permit capital accumulation in the underdeveloped world, but the Western model of development is hardly one that we can point to with any pride.
Those who have a serious concern for the problems that face backward countries, and for the role that advanced industrial societies might, in principle, play in development and modernization, must use somewhat more care in interpreting the significance of the Western experience.
The backward countries have incredible, perhaps insurmountable problems, and few available options; the United States has a wide range of options, and has the economic and technological resources, though, evidently, neither the intellectual nor moral resources, to confront at least some of these problems.
It is easy for an American intellectual to deliver homilies on the virtues of freedom and liberty, but if he is really concerned about, say, Chinese totalitarianism or the burdens imposed on the Chinese peasantry in forced industrialization, then he should face a task that is infinitely more important and challenging—the task of creating, in the United States, the intellectual and moral climate, as well as the social and economic conditions, that would permit this country to participate in modernization and development in a way commensurate with its material wealth and technical capacity.
Large capital gifts to Cuba and China might not succeed in alleviating the authoritarianism and terror that tend to accompany early stages of capital accumulation, but they are far more likely to have this effect than lectures on democratic values. But it is almost certain that capitalist encirclement itself, which all revolutionary movements now have to face, will guarantee this result.
The lesson, for those who are concerned to strengthen the democratic, spontaneous, and popular elements in developing societies, is quite clear. It is also true that this consensus is most noticeable among the scholar-experts who are replacing the free-floating intellectuals of the past. The analogy becomes clear when we look carefully at the ways in which this proposal is formulated.
With his usual lucidity, Churchill outlined the general position in a remark to his colleague of the moment, Joseph Stalin, at Teheran in The government of the world must be entrusted to satisfied nations, who wished nothing more for themselves than what they had. If the world-government were in the hands of hungry nations there would always be danger. But none of us had any reason to seek for anything more…. Our power placed us above the rest. We were like the rich men dwelling at peace within their habitations.
But I would hope that what we do in Southeast Asia would help to develop within the Chinese body politic more of a realism and willingness to live with this fear than to indulge it by support for liberation movements, which admittedly depend on a great deal more than external support…the operational question for American foreign policy is not whether that fear can be eliminated or substantially alleviated, but whether China can be faced with a structure of incentives, of penalties and rewards, of inducements that will make it willing to live with this fear.
They are organized and disciplined. The non-Communist nationalists are not—we do not have any large, well-organized political parties and we do not yet have unity.
We cannot leave the Vietcong in existence.
Officials in Washington understand the situation very well. Max Frankel reported from Washington in the Times on February 18, , that Compromise has had no appeal here because the Administration concluded long ago that the non-Communist forces of South Vietnam could not long survive in a Saigon coalition with Communists.
It is for that reason—and not because of an excessively rigid sense of protocol—that Washington has steadfastly refused to deal with the Vietcong or recognize them as an independent political force.
In short, we will—magnanimously—permit Vietcong representatives to attend negotiations only if they will agree to identify themselves as agents of a foreign power and thus forfeit the right to participate in a coalition government, a right which they have now been demanding for a half-dozen years.

Lexi is forced to question everything she thought she knew about what she wanted, and life-changing events push her to reevaluate the very plans she holds so dear.
See D. The lesson, for those who are concerned to strengthen the democratic, spontaneous, and popular elements in developing societies, is quite clear.
He simply suggests a terminology and provides a facade of rationality. He is very secretive and won't open to her which drove me bat shit crazy! Print is surging, ebooks are static—all the stats say so. There are two sides to every story, and Lexi doesnt even know this one. J Subst Abuse Treat.
