We are committed to ensuring all our products and websites are accessible to as wide an audience as possible and are continually improving the accessibility of our eBook, journal, digital platform, and website offerings.
Taylor & Francis has done a lot of work to improve our accessibility offerings and we are committed to doing more. Some highlighted achievements include
Launched an alt text program with our authors, to ensure newly published content contains image descriptions. Introduced ReadSpeaker to enable text to speech on our Journals platform, Taylor and Francis Online. Improved our ePub3 specifications and introduced some accessibility metadata into our eBook workflows. Published our CorporateAccessibility Statement, which recently received a Silver ASPIRE score.
Working with the Accessible Community
We are also very proud of our Academic VIP Requests inbox, which is an internal service that launched in 2009 and provides alternative formats for customers with visual or print disabilities. Since launch, the team have processed more than 26,000 requests, from both individuals and institutions globally.
