The Nordic Inclusive Publishing Initiative (NIPI) is a Nordic network of governmental agencies committed to provide accessible information, products and services to people with print disabilities.

NIPI seeks to establish awareness among publishers, editors, authors, government agencies, print disability organisations, and libraries, and make the shift from special accessibility solutions and services to inclusive publishing based on universal design of products and services.

The demand for e-book accessibility tips and best practices is growing, so the NIPI group has started to plan another gathering for 2023, together with other ways to share the useful information. Keep yourself up to date by subscribing the quarterly newsletter or drop us a line or question here.

  • The Swedish Agency for Accessible Media (MTM), Sweden, mtm.se
  • The Norwegian Library of Talking Books and Braille (NLB), Norway, nlb.no
  • Celia, Finland, celia.fi
  • Nota, Denmark, nota.dk

NIPI - Learn to be inclusive

NIPI mission

NIPI seeks to establish awareness among publishers, editors, authors, government agencies, print disability organisations, and libraries, and make the shift from special accessibility solutions and services to inclusive publishing based on universal design of products and services.

The goal is to increase accessibility in published information for people with print disabilities and ensure that they are distributed through accessible channels. The inspiration comes from the Australian Inclusive Publishing Initiative (AIPI), where the publishing industry, civil society organisations, and the public sector collaborates to increase access to published material for people living with print disabilities.
