Subject: Animation for Access


Hi All
I am interested to discover any research which deals with the use of
animation to help overcome the type of disabilities which limit  access
to text-based learning resources.
I suppose I am considering those people who have personal circumstances
which might affect their  mastery of written language. For example,
those
people who have been deaf from birth and possibly, some students with
specific learning disabilities. Current discussion seems to focus around
text reading as the only key to accessibility; which is not surprising
given
the traditional emphasis on the written word in education. I am
interested
to find research  which helps establish whether or not there is any
advantage in using animation as an additional  tool for accessibility.
Can anyone help me out? Or at least point me in the right direction?
Cheers

John
