Accessibility Assessment

OERigin Stories is a collection of transcribed oral interviews. There are no videos and all images were selected by the author/editor to highlight the narrative. In an effort to make OERigin Stories as accessible as possible, the author incorporated elements of the Accessibility Checklist used in Open At the Margins which came from the Rebus Guide to Publishing Open Textbooks (So Far), which was itself adapted from the BCcampus Open Education Accessibility Toolkit.
