Accessibility and usability barriers

The following information is provided to help people with disabilities know what potential barriers may exist within the Our Wisconsin online training. Accessibility findings have been sent to the vendor with a request to make the user experience accessible to all students, including those with disabilities.

Screen reader navigation may be difficult for people with visual disabilities

The following screen reader barriers may make it difficult to complete certain tasks via screen reader. 

  • Some images are missing alternative text
  • In the pre-course survey, some questions allow students to write in a custom response to a multiple choice question. These fields are missing a screen reader accessible label.

Magnification may be difficult for people with low vision

The following magnification barriers may cause barriers for students who are viewing the course while magnified:

  • When magnified at 400%, it may be difficult to complete course surveys as survey text overlaps. 
  • The “Profile” menu does not show all menu items when magnified above 200%
