Accessibility:Why does it matter?

Accessibility:Why does it matter? | Xerte Online Toolkits | Scoop.it
RSCScotlandXerte's insight:

An excellent example of the website version of Xerte.  This template has narrower range of page types associated with it but it is optimised for mobile devices. Whilst most of the Xerte toolkit page types (with the exception of things like FlashPaper pages) will work on mobile browsers the small size of the screen means that some of the more exciting interactivities like hotspot diagrams and drag-and-drop pages can be difficult to use effectively on some phones, though they work brilliantly on tablets. As people drift towards BYOD, the Xerte website template could become increasingly important.
