Week 10: Accessibility and Interactivity

The readings for the past two weeks addressed questions of accessibility for disabled users and interactive applications that can enhance the quality of visitor experience.  I’ve already applied several of the relevant accessibility techniques to my design page for the final project – they’re easy and quick to apply.

The interactive applications reviewed in our readings are interesting, but I don’t think I’ll be incorporating much of it into my website. As my store of images grows, I’ll likely review the options for using them in an interactive way.  I am taking Dr. Mullen’s course on Data and  Visualization in Digital History, which includes building interactive maps in R.  I may include such a map in my final project if I can develop one that’s at least marginally relevant.

I’ve commented on Kater’s , Josh’s, and Danielle’s posts this week.


  1. I’d love to see the map in class. I was thinking about incorporating some maps in my project too, but I don’t even know where to start.
