Nightly Build: http://build.fluidproject.org/prefsEditors/demos/discoveryTool/

Designs: PGA Preference Discovery Tool June 9

1. Preferences and UI Schemas and Persistence APIs

COMPLETED Goal: Provide a robust and extensible means for developers to create and share preference editor views and logic across the GPII; Support developers in creating preference editors, panels and enactors by creating documentation and tutorials.

2. Prepare Exemplary Content

COMPLETED Goal: Choose and prepare an exemplary piece of content in order to showcase the transformations. We want to demonstrate the Discovery Tool with a single resource that has been implemented using best practices and that has enough features to allow the application of the transformations (for example, a resource with no text wouldn't allow us to demonstrate increased text size).

3. Build Discovery Tool Interface

COMPLETED The Discovery Tool will start with a basic set of presets and enactors:

  • high contrast:
    • black on white
    • emphasize links
    • inputs larger
    • sans serif font or monospaced font
  • low contrast 
    • light gray on dark gray
    • emphasize links
    • inputs larger
    • sans serif font or monospaced font
  • increase size 
    • font
    • line spacing
  • simplify 
    • article elements only
    • add table of contents
    • increases line spacing 1.2x, text size 1.2x
  • text-to-speech
  • more text
    • display alt text, long descriptions
    • show transcripts

4. Implement 'Try Something New' Feature

COMPLETED Goal: Provide a means for the user to discover settings they might not otherwise have known about.

5. Integrate With GPII Preferences Service

COMPLETED Goal: Illustrate how the Discovery Tool will integrate with the Preferences Editor and GPII Preferences Services

4. Implement ToC as per designs

Goal: Demonstrate the best practice of using a site wide table of contents instead of only the page ToC

<need to find the newest designs and link them here>

5. Implement local data storage of preferences and improve the failure tolerance of data sources

Goal: Provide access to and backup storage of preferences when there are network connectivity issues.
