The review phase for the manuscript of Books without barriers, the new illustrated guide to creating accessible publications, is now complete. The AIWP writing team received very positive feedback on our first draft, along with lots of helpful suggestions for additions and improvements. Reviewers included publishers and researchers specialising in digital, audio, tactile and print formats, individuals with print disability, and writers and editors with experience in a range of publishing genres. 

The draft manuscript is now in the final stages of revision. We will begin copyediting and design in late February, and we are on track to publish in time for the IPEd conference in May.

The guide will be co-published as a free digital resource by IPEd and the Australian Publishers Association.
