IMS Access For All Digital Resource Description - Summary
This part of the Access For All Specification focuses on the description of the characteristics of the resource that affect how it can be perceived, understood or interacted with by users, including:
- What sensory modalities are used in the resource,
- Ways in which the resource is adaptable, i.e. whether text can be transformed automatically,
- Which methods of input the resource accepts, and
- What adaptations are available.
It provides an information model for describing learning resources so that individual learner preferences and needs (described according to the Access For All Personal Needs and Preferences for Digital Delivery) can be matched with the appropriate user interfaces, tools and learning resources within a computer-mediated learning environment.
