Editorial, Design, and Production Director Ana Bichanich Leads New Accessibility Initiative

December 11, 2023 | by scpress

When Ana Bichanich joined the University of South Carolina Press in September to lead its Editorial, Design, and Production department, she brought 10 years of production editor experience as well as a wealth of knowledge and enthusiasm for creating accessible ebooks.

For example, ebooks can be coded to be read by text-to-speech devices and so that text can be adjusted for readers with low-vision and dyslexia. A book’s design elements, including clear navigation and headers, are also essential for guiding readers through the text with ease.
