This page is the TOC of the use case collection. All uses cases added are linked to from this page.
If you are about to add a new use case, start by creating a new page, and then clone the template as a starting point.
Use cases that are in need of further analysis and/or expert input are marked below with a INPUT NEEDED suffix. If you are an expert in the area, you should help us out!
Styling and Layout
- NakaTobira_01 INPUT NEEDED
Domain-Specific Content Types
Behavioral Adaptive Content
Accessibility and Personalization
WCAG 2.0 & Education Environment / Educational Publishing
Pre-School through Middle School
- Captions & Early Readers
- When students are too young to judge how much additional time they might need (or the activity is too new/innovative)
Specialized Subject Areas (e.g. Chemistry, Grammar, Poetry)
(Can include providing authors with ability to polish pronunciations, pauses and stresses, as well as solutions such as subject-specific markup.)
- When implementations are tested, they might be tested with simpler content than what publishers need to use. Publishers should be able to submit samples to a test suite for verifying subject-specific readiness.
(versions & third-party, second-party or first-party patches.)
- Allow Different Math Pronunciations
- Facilitate Post Production Crowdsourcing of SVG Descriptions
- A publisher uses the latest WAI-ARIA and good semantics to make an interactive widget accessible on many assistive technologies, but there's a catch 22 as a key technology has a bug. (For example, VoiceOver doesn't handle merged table cells well currently.) Having identified the issue, a publisher wants to easily send a different version to the problematic assistive technology.
- A 3rd party wants to provide improve the accessibility of an interactive widget
- In an environment where accessibility has been customized, a publisher's customer support technical team needs to quickly identify the version in use and get detail on the reasons for the version, where it was tested, etc.
- In an environment where content is generated through crowdsourcing, a graduate student (for example) who uses assistive technology needs clear identification of the source of the content they receive and to be able to allow/disallow content depending on the source, at their own discretion.
General Accessibility Use Cases (including Math)
- Rendering of Accessible Mathematics with SVG as an Alternative to MathML
- Sonification of SVG Graphs
- Structural Descriptions in SVG
- Media-Query Print Stylesheet Like Functionality for SVG
- SVG reuse within pages, across pages and across titles
- Support for multiple languages or versions for image descriptions
- Publishers and content remixers would like to keep image descriptions and pointers to alternatives packaged together with images regardless of image format (e.g. PNG) for portability and reuse reasons
- A user wants to be able to find the simplified language version of an image description
- A users wants to read a short image description prior to listening to a longer and more detailed description
- A user wants a tour of a tactile graphic
- A user wants high quality braille transcription of the content of a publication
- Dyslexic users want synchronized word-level highlighting and TTS for text, structured content and math without having to use traditional assistive technology
- Need to look at media overlays EPUB use cases and features
- A user wants to be able to search for accessible content based on their needs and preferences and reading system requirements.
- A users wants to know if a reading system supports the accessibility features provided by the content they are trying to access.
- Standard Alternative Text Templates for Image Types: Consider that students learn what, for example, a pie chart is in class and later use pie charts. For sighted students, there are standard elements in these images.
