Accessibility

As of June 22, 2022, Cormorant Books has passed Benetech's GCA™ Certification for accessible ebooks.

We try to make our ebooks as accessible as possible. Our knowledge of accessibility standards is a work in progress so please forgive us if a particular eBook is not accessible to you. We make an effort to meet the requirements of the EPUB Accessibility specification with conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level “AA” and include various accessibility features such as alternative text, tables of contents, structural navigation, page-lists, landmarks, and reading order. There are no flashing, sound, or motion simulation hazards. Please contact us through info[at]cormorantbooks[dot]com if there is a feature you need that we have not included.

Cormorant Books, Inc / DCB is a signatory to the Charter of Accessible Publishing. The objective is to make our e-books accessible to all.

  1. stating our accessibility policy on our web-site, including adherence to this Charter;
