Improving access to itslearning for teachers, students and all other users is critical to ensuring better education for all. Following best practice from international bodies (WCAG 2.0 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, European Commission Web Accessibility Guidelines) we have been continually improving accessibility.
This release sees enhanced readability of itslearning for screen readers. We have improved alternative text for images, solved some issues with ’empty’ buttons/references following best practice from the Web Accessibility Initiative (Accessible Rich Internet Applications). We have also introduced a better way for screen readers to follow ‘Page titles’ which means we now uniquely identify more of the pages when users move around their course. We will continue to work on other improvements through Spring 2019.
