Trinity disability accessible research archive (DARAT)
The Trinity disability accessible research archive (DARAT) is an online resource that aims to build accessible spaces at TCD through dissemination of research conducted by TCD academics, staff and students in accessible formats. DARAT incorporates three features to ensure accessibility of the information. A plain English written summary of the publication, A short presentation of the research publication in Irish Sign Language (ISL) and an Audio recording.DARAT has the potential to enable researchers at TCD to share information about their research in accessible formats and therefore comply with current international and national legislation on the provision of information in multiple formats, to position TCD at the forefront of research dissemination innovation, and to increase access to research projects and findings by disabled people and the wider public.
