TransformAble is useful for users who want to customize Sakai's appearance to improve the readability and accessibility. It consists of two parts:

StyleAble is a component that generates customized style sheets based on a user's stated preferences, allowing them to control the overall appearance of the site, including the font size, face, foreground colour, background colour, highlight colour, and link appearance. User preferences are created through a tool currently called PreferAble, which (once un-stealthed) can be added to any workspace.

TransformAble is being developed by the Adaptive Technology Resource Centre at the University of Toronto. More information can be found on the project website:
