[EP-tech] Re: EPrints themes + themes for people with disabilities



Hello George,

If you're looking to build a responsive repository, Bootstrap will fit your needs and will allow you to optimise your repository for different platforms (desktop, tablet, mobile). You can use the documentation available at http://getbootstrap.com/components/ to build responsive elements and to make adjustments to the code and files generated Bootstrap plugin.

If you're looking for help with accessibility, I would recommend that you use WAVE (http://wave.webaim.org/), a free tool that will identify accessibility errors. You can use WAVE for every page and view, including citation summary pages. There are also a number of other tools you can use - you can find a comprehensive list at http://www.w3.org/WAI/ER/tools/.

Another idea ... you can also add Accessibility Developer Tools to Google Chrome by downloading the add-on at https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/accessibility-developer-t/fpkknkljclfencbdbgkenhalefipecmb. This will allow you to conduct in-browser accessibility checks.

Hope this helps! :-)

Cheers,

Andrew

Thanks very much John!

I think bootstrap does fit our needs, and I'll definitely try to use it
for this purpose!

The problem is that most institutions brand their repositories using some form of their institutional template, and while these rebranding *could* be themes, there's no gain for the institution in doing that, and the themes would be valueless to anyone else.
