Against the Grain, an online magazine focused on the issues, literature and people that impact the world of books and journals, quoted Betsy Beaumon, VP and General Manager of our Global Literacy Program, in an article titled The Challenge of Accessibility & New Media.
The article explores the complexity involved in providing access to information for all at a time of tremendous change caused by the rise of new publishing models and formats. In a section titled “Ending the Book Famine,” the article quotes Betsy on the future of reading and education for people with disabilities. Betsy notes:
“As long as we remain diligent while new materials and tools are emerging, holding publishers, reading tool makers, online courseware producers, content creation platforms, and assessment creators accountable (and helping them to get there), the next few years can transform the reading and educational landscape for people with disabilities.”
