Welcome to Take Part 2016 - a global conference on accessible information

More than 400 delegates from around the world will gather in Stockholm May 16th to 18th to exchange experiences and ideas on the human perspectives on inclusive publishing, universal design, and accessible information.

Zürich, Switzerland  ()

We are pleased to announce prominent keynote speakers such as universal design pioneer Patricia A. Moore, best-selling author David Lagercrantz (The Girl in the Spider’s Web and I am Zlatan) and George Kerscher, Chief Innovation Officer DAISY Consortium. In addition to ten keynote speakers, we offer a vast spectrum of seminars on technological advances, usability and how to reach the readers.


“Take Part will be a fantastic opportunity to gain and spread knowledge on the development of accessibility – and how to create, publish and distribute in a way that is accessible for all. We hope that this conference will increase knowledge of born accessible publications, and show how inclusion is essential to support democratic development and ensure human rights globally,” says Roland Esaiasson, Director General, MTM – Swedish Agency for Accessible Media.


Information is produced and distributed faster than ever, and it is important to include accessibility from the start. To learn more, join authors, publishers, distributors, libraries, education and accessibility advocates from the international world of reading and inclusion at Take Part 2016.


Take Part is organized by the international DAISY Consortium, the Swedish DAISY Consortium, the Swedish Library Association and the Swedish Agency for Accessible Media - MTM.
