Book Announcement -- Web Accessibility: A Foundation for Research

Yeliz Yesilada
Web Accessibility: A Foundation for Research,  S. Harper and Y.  
Yesilada, editors, Human-Computer Interaction Series. Springer,  
London, 1st edition, September 2008.
<http://www.springerlink.com/content/978-1-84800-049-0>

This book is written by leading experts in the field and provides an  
overview of existing research and also looks at future developments.  
It provides a much deeper insight than can be obtained through  
existing research libraries, aggregations, or search engines. In  
tackling the subject from a research, rather than practitioner  
standpoint, scientists, engineers and postgraduate students will find  
a definitive and foundational text that includes field overviews,  
references, issues, new research, problems and solutions, and  
opinions from industrial experts and renowned academics.

RE: Book Announcement -- Web Accessibility: A Foundation for Research

Jamal Mazrui
Is an accessible version of this book available at a reasonable price?
Examining the web site, I found that PDFs are offered in addition to
hard copy print, but the cost seems to be about $25 per PDF chapter,
amounting to more than the hard copy price of the book.  

Regards,
Jamal
