Ace SMART — User Guide

Distribution Metadata

The Distribution tab provides the ability to create a set of metadata for use in ONIX 3 records for distribution in vendor systems.

Figure 1 — The Distribution tab is the fourth in the tab bar. It contains fields for specifying ONIX metadata.

The tab consists of a set of text fields and checkboxes that correspond to each of the accessibility fields listed in ONIX Code List 196.

Note: Onix metadata is not used in the final accessibility report. This tab can be skipped if you do not need an ONIX record for distribution.

Similar to the discovery metadata, the fields are pre-populated based on information found in the Ace report.

If you are unsure how to complete these fields, more information is available from the DAISY Knowledge Base.

After you have completed the section, click the "Generate" button at the bottom of the page to create the metadata. A new dialog will appear from which you can copy the tags.

Figure 2 — The distribution metadata dialog box overlays the current screen when opened. It contains the new markup inside a textbox.
