An Analysis of the ePublishing Ecosystem

This session will concentrate on issues that have impacted the growth of ePublishing in India and the ecosystem of producers and consumers that have developed around it.. It will examine the infrastructural issues that have undermined the proliferation of eBooks in India, issues such as the non-availability of adequate fonts, the absence of a home-grown reader and the absence of well-evolved tools such as OCR that could facilitate the development of eBooks within an Indian context. It will look for answers that could aid the development of eBooks in India, especially among Indian languages, and the impact such a development could have in cultivating a readership for these languages.
