Are you a publisher, UX designer, accessibility researcher, or developer who has wondered whether it is possible for interactive graphics to become effective learning tools for learners who rely on screenreaders for access, especially in the STEM classroom? In this webinar, presenters will discuss:

  *   Results of DIAGRAM research into current best practices for making dynamic scientific graphics accessible to persons with print disabilities.
  *   A framework that describes the information flow in interactive widgets and a set of guidelines for providing this information to users.
  *   A freely available working example to aid content creators in the implementation of guidelines, including a walk-through of the working example and its source code.
  *   Examples of interactive widgets currently available from Pearson and others.
  *   The wide range of widgets being delivered in new K-12 assessments and the accessibility challenges they create.
