The following information is provided to help people with disabilities know what potential barriers may exist with the Course Search & Enroll.
Keyboard navigation may be difficult because the focus style, which shows the keyboard navigating user where the navigation has moved to, is a low contrast and difficult to see in a small number of cases, such as the “Add to Cart” button. Additionally, when searching for courses, keyboard navigation may move out of the course list making it difficult to navigate through multiple pages of courses via keyboard.
When navigating via screen reader, some reading order, such as the content of the help menu, is out of order. This may make some content difficult to reach via screen reader.
When reviewing course details, it might be difficult when navigating via screen reader to know that the course details menu has opened as this is not announced to the screen reader.
When magnified between 300-400%, some content is blocked by the top and side navigation bars and may be difficult to see for people who have low vision.
