The Alt-text Assessment Report (ATAR)
During the A-EPUB3 production process, a placeholder/marker is inserted in the EPUB3 file for all images requiring Alt-text. These markers are included in the ATAR Report, an Excel sheet providing thumbnails of all images in the text (one row per image.)
The first draft, supplied with all Accessible EPUB3 deliveries, provides an easy way for editors/creators to review and improve the text. When the sheet is returned, DPS will write all modifications provided into the EPUB, producing a finished file which meets the "creator-approved" criterion for images.
Where the “ATAR Service” Is included in the initial order, there is no extra charge for this additional step.
Where EPUB3 is ordered without ATAR, integration of corrected alt-text is available at an extra charge.
