Commitment to Accessibility
Bedford, Freeman & Worth Publishing Group (BFW) is committed to the goal of providing equal access to all products regardless of an individual’s age, ability, or situation and embraces the opportunity to develop services and information technologies
that are accessible and usable by all individuals. Accessibility at BFW is about extending the power of education to all users. In addition to addressing product compatibility with assistive technologies such as screen reader software, alternative keyboard
devices, and voice recognition products, we are working to ensure that the content and platforms we provide are fully accessible.
By partnering with the best and the brightest authors in their respective fields, BFW strives to improve the world by moving beyond conventional educational concepts and empowering all instructors and students to explore coursework in new, innovative,
and creative ways that will enable better outcomes for students and institutions.
Accessibility at BFW is measured using guidelines set forth by 29 U.S.C. 794d (more commonly known as Section 508), as well as the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) (more commonly known as WCAG 2.0 AA).
BFW works to make our electronic files NIMAS compliant for all High School textbooks and related supplemental material. Many titles meet NIMAS compliance and we are converting new titles every month.
BFW provides closed-captioning, audio description, and/or transcripts for all videos.
BFW offers accessible textbooks as ebooks through a number of distributors. eBooks are produced in the ePUB3 file format based on industry accessibility recommendations.. If you plan to offer your students the option to purchase a BFW ebook using a third
party platform we recommend that you contact the third party for more information on their platforms accessibility statement.
BFW is committed to providing accessible eLearning solutions to students. New platforms and content are created with accessibility as a priority and we are actively engaged in the updated of legacy systems and content.
