At Enalyzer, our development team is always working on improving the experience for survey and report administrators, as well as respondents. Therefore, we’re excited to announce that Enalyzer surveys are WCAG 2.1 Level A Compliant, in other words, we’ve made our surveys more accessible to respondents with disabilities.
What does this mean?
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) are a set of guidelines for making online content and websites accessible to people with disabilities. They cover things such as writing instructions in clear language, provide alternative text for images, and ensuring that anyone can navigate the website/application with just a mouse and a screen. The WCAG has three levels of accessibility: A, AA and AAA, where A is the lowest level and AAA the highest.
Enalyzer is now WCAG 2.1 level A compliant, and we are just getting started!
A screen reader is an essential piece of software for a blind or visually impaired person. A screen reader, transmits whatever text is displayed on the computer screen into a form that a visually impaired user can process, usually tactile, auditory or a combination of both. In other words, screen readers can read the text aloud and/or communicate data via a braille display.
Enalyzer surveys are now compatible with screen readers. Best practice tips for you, the survey creators, would be to include the necessary text to enable a respondent to successfully navigate and complete a survey by using a screen reader.
A screen magnifier is a software application that increases the size of text and graphics on computer screens. They work like a magnifying glass hovering over the screen, enlarging everything around the cursor for easy reading. Enalyzer surveys are also compatible with screen magnifiers.
