Today, on International Education Day, we would like to highlight the "GCA Publisher Certification Programme" that was developed by Benetech from the United States.

This programme ensures that all eBooks are accessible throughout the workflow: It analyzes over 100 accessibility features - according to the EPUB (electronic publication) guidelines and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 - and recommends appropriate actions.

As of 2021, over 600 accessible eBooks were available after certification and 17 publishers/eBook manufacturers have achieved GCA™ certification.

The "GCA Publisher Certification Programme" is one 76 Zero Project Awardees from 35 countries that create and improve accessibility for all.
