    The Global Certified Accessible (GCA) program assists publishers and vendors in creating content accessible to all readers by adjusting workflows and ensuring compliance with accessibility standards. Publishers can get GCA certification to assist them in producing accessible titles. This will be of interest to librarians as books that are certified guarantee a level of accessibility which will be useful for searching books for patrons and procurement. Various publishers globally are listed.

    The information on this page is summarized from the Certified Publishers: Benetech webpage.
