Testimonials

eBOUND has been a huge asset to the digital side of our publishing business. Their support team is incredibly responsive. Having them on our side makes me feel more confident in navigating our day-to-day digital distribution operations.

Matthew Chan

Integrated Solutions Manager, House of Anansi Press

Recently, BWL Publishing Inc worked closely with eBound Canada converting select titles into Accessible files. eBound's guidance was invaluable. They made the process quick and painless and were with us each step of the way. Highly recommended.

Nancy Bell

Acquisitions and Editorial Manager, Books We Love Ltd.

Our experience with the Benetech Certification Program was insightful and clear. While the process is a time commitment, the recommendations and corrections were clearly communicated and the team was available to answer questions and provide technical support. The certification process built confidence in our epub quality and the accessible experience we are providing our readers.
