Creating slide shows or an entire web site around images and presentations just got easier with Scooch from Grow Collective.
Grow Collective is a Web technology co-operative based in Bristol, UK that specialises in accessible, standards-based Web design and applications. Scooch meets a need for slide shows that are fun to use, easy to create but most importantly provide meaningful data to both humans and the tools we all use like search engines. Scooch has three distinct advantages over some similliar tools: Accessiblility, Web Standards-based design and a dose of SIDE.
It also means that the content is not locked in to a format that search engines cannot read like Flash. No special browser plug-ins are reqired. In fact, the semantic XHTML using Microformats and the accessible design make Scooch slide shows highly visible to search engines. So not only does Scooch deliver outstanding, ethical search engine optimisation (SEO) but it also enables the slide show contents to be aggregated by any of the tools we use to find useful data on the Web.
Scooch does a complicated job in a simple, fun way that both users and designers will love. The easy to use interface, the simplicity of installation and the accessible, web standards-based structure make Scooch the perfect plug-in for any web site that needs to publish slide shows or presentations.
