Ace SMART is made available by the DAISY Consortium to help publishers fully evaluate their EPUB publications against the requirements of the EPUB Accessibility specification.

It is intended as a complement to the Ace by DAISY validation checker, covering the aspects of accessibility conformance verification that cannot be handled by machine alone.

SMART provides publishers with the full list of WCAG and EPUB success criteria that must be met, as well as guidance on how to evaluate each criterion. The ability to pass and fail each criterion is also available, ultimately allowing publishers to generate a final report covering their full evaluation. Publishers can also save their reports and return to them later.

SMART also provides tools to help generate accessibility metadata for use both in the EPUB publication and in ONIX records.
