Accessibility & usability barriers 

The following information is provided to help people with disabilities know what potential barriers may exist.

Magnification barriers create difficulties perceiving information for some users, such as people with low vision

When the screen is magnified at and above 250%, the user must scroll horizontally to reach all content.

Lack of status updates make search function difficult for users navigating via screen reader, such as people who are low vision or blind 

When searching in the class roster in the Namecoach Canvas integration, a screen reader user is never given a status update when a search is loading or when it has finished loading. The user must also manually clear the name from the search field in order to remove the filter on the roster, as the button to clear the field is skipped in the navigation order.

Screenreader announcements may disrupt name recording for users navigating via screen reader, such as people who are low vision or blind

Some screenreaders may continue announcing while a user is trying to record their name. These users may need to pause the screenreader to use the record feature.
