A closed-caption recording of this program, along with a copy of the PowerPoint slides, will be made available on the DIAGRAM Webinars page at Access to the video and PowerPoints is free to all. Thank you very much for your interest in the DIAGRAM Center. We look forward to seeing you at the next webinar.

Meeting Description:
Get a tour of the Accessible Image Sample Book, a new free online resource that shows what some of the many options are for creating accessible versions of digital images such as maps, bar charts, diagrams, mathematical expressions, photographs, and more. Each of the seven chapters shows a different complex image in context of the book it came from, along with helpful tips and the code used to provide the accessible image in a digital book. See (and hear!) the different ways that an image can be made accessible, including: short and long descriptions, tactile graphics, MathML, sonification, audio description, and 3D printing. The authors will host this webinar which introduces the AISB, including a tour of what it contains and suggestions for how you might use it.
