Thanks for the feedback, we are updating the publication by modifying the manifest as suggested and adding accessibility metadata.

With regard to issues of accessibility of multimedia and interactive content, the publication makes use of the HTML 5 <audio> tag and the <form> tag with JavaScript for validation. Both these technologies are not well supported by the current reading solutions for EPUB 3 (especially in conjunction with the screenreader), while via browser they do not present problems.

Gregorio,

thanks!

I have only one comment on the manifest. Per the text in the paragraph 4.5.2

"The resource list enumerates any additional resources used in the processing and rendering of a Web Publication that are not already listed in the default reading order."

there is no need to add all the entries from the Reading Order (ie, Text/Pinocchio-1.xhtml, Text/Pinocchio-2.xhtml, etc) in the "resources" list. That simplifies the structure of the manifest!

I would actually be very interested to see some more details on this remark:

> A very interesting immediate result is that the multimedia and interactive features, which are not working well in EPUB reading solutions through assistive technologies, are instead very accessible from browsers.

I think it would be important for all of us to understand why this is indeed the case…

Thanks again!

Ivan

Dear all,
In the last months as LIA Foundation we have followed the work of a student (Luca Minardi) of the University of Pisa (Italy) who, together with the teacher Barbara Leporini, has prepared a thesis on the production of an accessible multimedia and interactive EPUB 3, then transforming it into a Web Publication.

I am writing to you because we have finally published the WP and we would like to have your feedback, in particular on the structure of the manifest:

  *   WP URL: http://hiis.isti.cnr.it/demo/pinocchio/WebPublication/index.html
  *   Manifest: http://hiis.isti.cnr.it/demo/pinocchio/WebPublication/Manifest.json

A very interesting immediate result is that the multimedia and interactive features, which are not working well in EPUB reading solutions through assistive technologies, are instead very accessible from browsers.
