CC Digital Press is committed to publishing multimodal digital projects and ebooks that have the same intellectual heft as a book. Additionally, the Press is committed to maintaining ebooks and projects that are broadly accessible for users of diverse technologies (e.g., screen readers, mobile devices) as well as for users who have a wide range of abilities and preferences for accessing communicative modalities (visual, aural, alphabetic). On this page, we provide links to a wide variety of resources for creating accessible digital content.
