Participants from around the world will gather in Stockholm on May 16th to 18th to exchange experiences and ideas on inclusive digital publishing, e-books, universal design, and accessible information. Take Part brings together users, highly-regarded technologists, librarians, accessibility experts, entrepreneurs and more.

Conference organizers are pleased to announce prominent keynote speakers such as universal design pioneer Patricia A. Moore, best-selling author David Lagercrantz (The Girl in the Spider's Web and I am Zlatan) and George Kerscher, Chief Innovation Officer DAISY Consortium. In addition to ten keynote speakers, conference offers a vast spectrum of seminars on technological advances, usability and how to reach the readers.

"Take Part will be a fantastic opportunity to gain and spread knowledge on the development of accessibility - and how to create, publish and distribute in a way that is accessible for all. We hope that this conference will increase knowledge of born accessible publications, and show how inclusion is essential to support democratic development and ensure human rights globally," says Roland Esaiasson, Director General, MTM - Swedish Agency for Accessible Media.

Information is produced and distributed faster than ever. It is important to include accessibility from the start. To learn more, join authors, publishers, distributors, libraries, education and accessibility advocates from the international world of reading and inclusion at Take Part 2016.
