Ingram’s VitalSource Announces “Accessibility Release”

May 18, 2010

VitalSource Technologies Inc., an Ingram Content Group company, announced an "accessibility release" for its VitalSource Bookshelf etextbook platform. The new version of VitalSource Bookshelf includes the new DTD (Document Type Definition) v3.4 and VitalSource's "MathSpeak" program which adds rich English-language articulation to MathML tags. The project, which has been in the works for several months, was completed with assistance from AFB Consulting, the accessibility consulting arm of the American Foundation for the Blind. The Accessibility Release should be available for Windows and Apple computers in June, with versions for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad coming in August.
