Certified Publishers

Our goal is to help publishers build born accessible content that meets the needs of all readers. The GCA program accomplishes this by helping adjust publisher workflows to ensure that content they produce is accessible from the start. Learn more about certification.

We highly encourage both publishers and vendors to become certified. Publishers must have their own GCA certification in order to create GCA certified titles and are the only entity who can create accessibility metadata for a title. Conversion vendors can add publisher provided metadata to a title’s file, but are not capable of creating the metadata. Publishers should also provide conversion vendors with accessibility specifications for each title. Once the file is complete, it should be reviewed by the publisher to ensure all specifications have been met.

We’re proud to have publishers across the globe participate in the GCA program. These publishers have made a commitment to providing readers with accessible content and are GCA certified.
