If you are supporting a user, hiding cells is a good way to reveal content over time to help with progression, or to make the cell count lower at first to prepare for revealing the full grid set at a later date. Inaccessible cells are useful when making grid sets with titles or question cells, so they are not accessible next to the content or answers.
- Open your chosen grid set and browse to the menu bar (three lines, top left corner) and select Edit grids.
- Select a cell, browse to the Home tab at the top of the screen and select the Cell accessibility drop-down menu.
- Select the option you need for your cell.
Note: you can select multiple cells and change the cell accessibility on all of them in one go.
There are 4 cell accessibility options:
- Fully accessible – This cell will be visible to all access methods.
- Pointer and touch only – This means the cell can only be accessed using a pointer device (e.g. mouse) or touch screen. This is useful if you want to create a row of settings cells, useful for a situation in which a third party may need to quickly adjust settings like dwell time during an assessment, for example. These cells would not be triggered by the eye gaze of the user.
- Not accessible – The cell will not respond to any access method. This could be used to ensure that activity can be directed away from certain cells during a lesson or activity. Note: a non-accessible cell will not show a highlight around it even when selected.
- Hidden – These cells will only appear when the grid set is in Edit mode.
