The gallery is accessible and provides a starting point for exploration of modality translation concepts developed in the CNICE project.


Meaning Equivalence Reusable Learning Objects (MERLO) is a pedagogical system that encourage learners to focus on meaning by recognizing and producing multiple representations of equivalent meaning. More examples produced during the CNICE project are available in the companion material. Download a sample MERLO architectural object.

The Science Matrix educational software program by Digital Frog International explores concepts around providing accessible multi-media content. The web-based software includes built in accessibility options such as a screen reader and keyboard control. In the process of this work an "iShell Techniques for WCAG 2.0" draft document was produced. Recent changes to the structure of the WCAG 2.0 draft made by the W3C working group will require edits to be made to this document, however, the content remains useful: http://www.cnice.utoronto.ca/deliverables/iShell_techs/iShell_techs.html.

Virtual Museum Exhibit: Disability Rights Movement

The virtual museum exhibit developed by the Canadian Centre for Disability Studies traces the disability rights movement from the 1980s onwards. This exhibit was developed using participatory design that gives voice to many interested parties for decisions about content and structure of the exhibit. The exhibit is fully accessible and provides a model of practice for online curation that will be further explored in the InCNet project.
