CAST is pleased to announce the public release of CAST Figuration, an open source CSS/Javascript framework for creating accessible, cross-device, interactive websites.  Figuration contains styles for text and buttons; interactive elements such as menus, tabs, sliders, and modal dialogs; column and grid layouts that adapt to the screen and device in use; color schemes that pass WCAG contrast checks; and advanced components such as HTML5 audio and video players with interactive captions.  Based on Bootstrap and developed for use in CAST’s product development and research prototypes, we hope that Figuration will provide a foundation for accelerating innovative and accessible web design practices by making them more efficient and elegant. Figuration is being released as a product of the National Center on Accessible Educational Materials, made possible by the generous support and encouragement of the Office of Special Education Programs, United States Department of Education.
