Jakarta Content Week, or Jaktent, a new annual celebration of innovation and creativity in the Indonesian capital played host to two IPA seminars in November.
IPA’s Director of Communications, James Taylor, spoke about the IPA’s increasingly pivotal role in promoting born-accessible publishing around the world and how adopting accessibility is an opportunity to reach more readers and make better books.
