How to use Paperturn's Accessibility Features

Users with disabilities have their own unique flipbook viewer, as well as a Disability Interface Tool, which enables them to instantly adjust your flipbook's UI, design and readability to meet their individual need or disability. 


*IMPORTANT: In order for a flipbook to display and be read correctly in our accessibility viewer, make sure that the PDF you upload to Paperturn follows our guidelines on PDF accessibility. If your PDF doesn’t follow these guidelines, certain images, pages and paragraphs may be distorted, may not display, or may be read incorrectly by a screen reader.


How to access the accessible flipbook viewer

Open your flipbook in the flipbook viewer and click on the "Accessibility" option in the top menu bar.

Once you've clicked the accessibility option, you're now officially in the accessible flipbook viewer. Our accessible flipbook viewer is powered by a background artificial intelligence (AI) application which adjusts your flipbook and optimizes it for screen readers and keyboard navigation by analyzing its components from top to bottom and providing meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. 


How to use the Disability Interface Tool on your flipbooks

In the accessible flipbook viewer, click on the wheelchair icon in the bottom left corner of the screen. When that icon is clicked, the Disability Interface Tool expands and you can select your desired accessibility adjustments.
