If you are interested in the world of digital reading,

then you are invited to learn more about a crowd source initiative that will
improve the reading experience for everybody, and especially those with
reading differences.
The DAISY Consortium, a member of the W3C and the Book Industry Study Group
(BISG) is conducting evaluations of reading Apps and ereaders in the market
today. The evaluation examines the fundamental accessibility and usability
of the reading apps (all platforms) or devices; many people we are looking
for will be using Assistive Technology, like a screen reader to perform the
tests. However, we are also looking for anybody with a reading difference or
universities and schools that are interested in helping to develop the best
reading experience possible.
We have set up a landing page that explains exactly what we are doing, and
it provides an opportunity to get involved.
