We’re working on the next update to digress.it and I thought you might be interested in the keyboard shortcuts that Alex has added. It’s activated on this site: http://linkeddata.jiscpress.org/ Use the arrow keys to go up and down the paragraphs in a page; use the j and k keys to go back and forward document sections and use the c key to jump to the comment box and the escape key to jump out of the comment box. Alex has also added a lot of markup in the code for accessibility. Feedback very welcome.
Great news. Our tender to JISC for ‘Benefits and Realisation’ funds was accepted. Over the next three months, we’ll be working on meeting the recent accessibility review of digress.it and creating high quality documentation and supporting video tutorials. We hope that this will ensure that the work we did on the JISCPress project last year, is sustained through increased user take up and code contributions. You can read our tender document, here.
We were invited to and have submitted a tender to JISC for funding from their Benefits and Realisation Programme. We have proposed to develop JISCPress for accessibility as well as develop comprehensive support materials including video tutorials. UKOLN will act as a user group to provide feedback. Fingers crossed, we’ll start in May and run for three months.
Just submitted a proposal to the Online Deliberation Conference 2010 http://j.mp/bd19Sn Hopefully, we’ll be demoing WriteToReply/JISCPress
