Those of us working on the next Calc user guide would like to establish
uniform guidelines for annotating graphics, mostly screenshots. We plan
to use Draw to produce arrows/lines with explanatory text.
Of course, we want the annotations to be clear and attractive as well as
optimized for the visually impaired.
We are looking for ideas about specific colors and styles of arrows,
text, text background, and borders.
Recommendations and examples of best practices would be helpful.
I wanted to touch base with you all on this again.
Cathy and I had a chance last Thursday to think of this as we reviewed her
updates and questions on Chapter 1. One of the things that came up was the
question of accessibility and best practices regarding images and ebub
So, I wasn't sure what exactly was already in the Contributors document and
had the chance to read that over this morning. There is a few paragraphs
covering basics on annotating with a target of the printed page, no mention
of accessibility and electronic publication which I could find. (I didn't
read over all chapters of the book today).
So one question, for example, would be on Alternative text for images and
the epub formats. I was trying to get the Alternative text which I assegned
to a graphic to show up in a pdf, as an example, and having no luck at it.
I didn't try any of the other epub formats and I would be interested if
others know if that works properly there or not?
