Beneblog: Technology Meets Society
MAY 15, 2012
This week, Benetech’s DIAGRAM Center has announced the release of an open source web application for creating and editing crowdsourced image descriptions in books used by students with print disabilities. The Poet application developed by DIAGRAM helps level the playing field by making otherwise inaccessible graphic content available for students and other readers who cannot read traditional books. DIAGRAM stands for Digital Image and Graphics Resources for Accessible Materials.
