We assure you to take care of every process from conversion of your print files to NIMAS format, quality assurance, validation, preparing title metadata, uploading to the NIMAC portal, revision management till your title has been certified by NIMAC.

#Scientific and Mathematical Notations

In June, 2012, the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services (OSERS) distributed the MathML3 Structure Guidelines to all state directors of Special Education specifically encouraging State Education Agencies (SEAs) and Local Education Agencies (LEAs) to "ask publishers to use the MathML3 Structure Guidelines recommended by the Center when requesting NIMAS files." MathML in NIMAS is an application of the MathML in DAISY modular extension. We offer quality MathML conversion as a part of NIMAS conversion service.

We have an extensive technical experience and are able to resolve complex technical issues with respect to the accessible formats (NIMAS, DAISY, DTB, Braille) and other digital instructional materials (EPUB, KINDLE, EDUPUB, SCORM, IMS QTI, Learning Objects, E-Learning or Next Generation Digital Integrated Learning Systems). Our technical team is able to guide you through the entire pathway of digital learning.

#Warranty and Support

Just in case, if there are any revisions required to fulfil the requirements for the NIMAC certification, we undertake such revisions as may be desired by NIMAC.
