In keeping with the DIAGRAM Center goal of dramatically changing the way image and graphic content for accessible instructional materials (AIM) is produced and accessed, several development efforts are underway. The results of the work performed by the Center and its partners will be reported in this section; and there are currently three efforts to present.
- Development of an open source tool for creating image descriptions in DAISY books. An explanation of the tool, and the supporting materials to let you make use of it, can be found on the Image Description Tool page.
- Development of a draft candidate of a content model which provides a set of metadata and content standards for image alternatives in digital media. Background information and details can be found on the Content Model page.
- A proposal of an attribute called epub:describedat to replace and enhance the longdesc HTML attribute, which was deprecated in HTML5.
