The TransformAble project, led by the Adaptive Technology Resource Centre, advanced technologies successfully developed through TILE (The Inclusive Learning Exchange, http://inclusivelearning.ca/). The technology applies the “AccessForAll” international interoperability specifications to allow websites with digital cultural collections to transform the presentation of these online resources so that they are personalized to each individual user’s needs. For example, if a user who is visually impaired logs into a cultural site equipped with TransformAble, the size of the text will be increased, the colours of the background and text will be adjusted to enhance the contrast, and important information will be relocated within the view. Similarly, if a user who is deaf visits the same site, any videos requested will be displayed with text captions.
