GoodeReader met with Rose Rummel-Eury, the Director of North American Sales for MPS, at this year’s Digital Book World conference. Like so many other digital publishing platforms, MPS provides digital solutions for publishers and companies with content to distribute electronically. But thanks to a cause that matters deeply to Rummel-Eury, MPS is already addressing a need that will become of even greater importance to the online community.
With so much content being shared online through browser-based publishing, publication to portable devices, and video file supports like YouTube, an entire segment of the world’s population can be left in the dark, figuratively. The millions of consumers worldwide with hearing impairments, vision impairments, or both, often cannot access content that the rest of the population can consume.
MPS has already built into its platform the ability to caption their clients’ work, either with on-screen words or narration. As activists in those communities work to achieve awareness and legislation that will address their needs, MPS is already able to work with publishers to meet the needs of all digital readers.
