IMS Access for All version 3: accessibility through personalization a free
Webinar hosted by EASI
This free EASI Webinar is scheduled for:
Monday Dec 17th, 11 Pacific, noon Mountain, 1 Central and 2pm Eastern
This is a large project with several important organizations cooperating to
further the future of access for all
• Anastasia Cheetham, Inclusive Design Research Centre, OCAD University
• Andy Heath, Axelrod Access for All
• Madeleine Rothberg, WGBH National Center for Accessible Media
• Rich Schwerdtfeger, IBM

The Access for All standard offers an approach to meet the needs of diverse
users in diverse contexts by personalizing the experience of each user.
Access for All suggests that the best way to meet individual's particular
needs at that time in that context is to deliver digital materials in the
way that is most accessible to that person. Access for All defines the
personal preferences statements and resource metadata necessary to support
this matching. Access for All is in use in educational sites and will soon
be integrated into larger platforms including the Global Public Inclusive
Infrastructure. Version 3 of the standard from IMS offers a compact Core
model and bindings to support varied technical approaches.
