  • Designed to consider the needs of people who rely on screen reading technology.
    • Content is formatted to work with screen readers.
    • Images have alt tags.

Other file formats available

In addition to the web version, this book is available in a number of file formats, including:

  • Print PDF (the format you should select if you plan to make a printed, physical copy of your book. This file meets the requirements of printers and print-on-demand services.)
  • Digital PDF (useful if you want to distribute your book as a digital file, but do not intend to print the file. Digital PDFs are optimized for accessibility, contain hyperlinks for easier navigation, and can be used online.)
  • EPUB (these files can be submitted to any popular ebook distributor and opened by most modern ebook readers. This is the file you’d use to submit your ebook to Kobo, Nook, iBooks, Amazon, and others.)
  • Common Cartridge with Web Links (this export form allows you to iframe content as an external link into an LMS, like Canvas)
  • Various editable files. Look for the ‘Download this book’ drop-down menu on the landing page to select the file type you want.
