Developers Sub-Group: Drag and Drop
The Drag and Drop Task Force has refined its analysis of the different applications of the drag-and-drop metaphor that give rise to distinct accessibility issues. This work has been facilitated by the identification of examples of each case arising in educational applications (especially interactive simulations). The findings of the task force’s analysis of these access challenges, and how they can be addressed, will be shared with the DIAGRAM community when the documentation is ready for wider review. This work will serve as the basis for authoring guidelines for developers of interactive educational applications that employ drag and drop in their designs.
