1               Introduction

1.1       Access For All Overview

The Access For All Specification (AfA) is intended to promote an inclusive user experience by enabling the matching of the characteristics of resources to the needs and preferences of individual users. The AfA specification consists of a common language for describing:

·        A learner’s needs and preferences with respect to how the learner can best interact with digital resources, [1] . This is represented using the IMS Global Access For All Personal Needs and Preferences   (PNP ) v3.0 [AfAPNP, 12] specification;

·        Digital learning resources. This is represented using the IMS Global Access For All Digital Resource Description   (DRD ) v3.0 [AfADRD, 12] specification.

 

1.2       Scope and Context

This part of the AfA specification provides the common vocabulary and terms used in both the DRD   and PNP   information model specifications [AfADRD, 12], [AfAPNP, 12].

The Data Element Specification (DES) vocabulary is defined as a set of classes used in the information model definitions. Each class includes a definition, its range of values, and a linguistic indicator. The possible value terms are defined in the DES. Each term provides a definition, a linguistic indicator, a value, content value rules, and a reference to terms the term is a refinement of.

 

1.3       Structure of this Document

The structure of this document is:

1.    Terminology

Definitions of the key terms for the AfA v3.0 specification as a whole;

2.    Vocabulary Classes

The set of vocabulary classes used within the AfA DRD and AfA PNP definitions;

3.    Vocabulary Terms
