Notes

  • Ms Office and Adobe Acrobat are not represented in these graphs or in PROD – their use (or the use of open source alternatives which can produce respective file types) is ubiquitous and dominant.
  • For a number of online tools (typically those considered web2.0) there is an overlap between creation and hosting platforms and are listed on both graphs.

Comment

  • Flash is the only tool (apart from Office and Acrobat) that shows use across more than a few projects.

  1. Flash is popular but does not currently work on Apple mobile devices. In addition to PDF and RTF format, TIGER also created ePub versions for those wishing to format TIGER content for mobile devices.
