Animations On or Off

Animations are ON by default in the Tuva Tools to give learners dynamic visual feedback and help them draw connections between the different graphical representations of the data. Since animated data points and graphs can potentially cause seizures, learners have the ability to go to the ACCESSIBILITY CARD and turn off Animations.
