We develop our products and services to follow industry standard accessibility standards. This includes using proper HTML tags, syntactically-valid and accessible HTML, making pages/forms/web-apps keyboard accessible, testing that screen-readers can properly read pages, and that web-standard accessibility features, including features like ARIA tags and roles, are included.
Our product is delivered as a web-app. This gives users access to using our product on a web-enabled device they are most comfortable with. Be it a laptop, tablet, or smartphone. This also allows users to use the devices accessibility tools, including magnifiers, web-browser functionality for zooming in on the page/increasing font size, screen readers and more. This also means that users have a wide variety of devices and systems they can use to access EngageWhiz.
We consult with accessibility specialists in the education field to make sure we are following best practices and keep up-to-date.
We provide a wide variety of accessibility settings in our platform, allowing users to configure EngageWhiz to work best for them. These settings include, but are not limited to:
Students can mark accessibility requirements (e.g. a vision impairment), which will indicate this to their course instructors.
When creating or using content in a course, for example a question with images, if there are students in the course with accessibility requirements related to vision, the instructur will be alerted to this to make sure they are creating content that is accessible for everyone.
We are able to lend out smartphones as well as keyboards, for those who may not have a device capable of running our product, or who need a device that can better help them access EngageWhiz.
