As more and more organisations are delivering assessments on-screen, legal, and ethical issues are compelling them to better accommodate the needs of participants with disabilities. Questionmark includes new capabilities for improving the accessibility of assessments in adherence to WCAG standards:

  • Delivery software renders HTML optimized to work with assistive technologies such as screen readers.
  • Templates include text-sizing and contrast controls within assessments to aid participants with low/partial vision:

    font and contrast controls

    Try an assessment with text-sizing and contrast controls!

  • Improved capabilities for navigation of assessments via keyboard and/or alternate devices to accommodate participants who are unable to use a mouse are included.

These and other capabilities help organizations ensure compliance with web accessibility standards such as Section 508 in the United States and the International Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines (WCAG) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
