Accessible Interactives Library Update

2019 June 5
by Charles LaPierre

The Accessible Interactives Library is an online GitHub repository of best practice accessible code snippets for common online interactions, such as drag-and-drop, sliders, and photo carousels, with an online demonstration of their real-world implementations. Since the initial launch in August 2018, we’ve worked with dozens of publishers and edtech developers to update, disseminate, and track implementation stories regarding this resource. To date, our collection of code samples and examples includes 24 accessible interactives and adoptions from key partners such as W.W. Norton and PhET Interactives. These implementations were shared and met with much excitement during the “Speed Geeking” rounds, held at the Strategic Planning Meeting. We plan to continue growing the collection throughout the remainder of the DIAGRAM + award period.
