How iQualify meets and maintains accessibility standards

At iQualify, we understand that the internet is for everyone

As we develop our platform, we use tools like screen readers and accessibility analysis applications to help improve and maintain our standard of accessibility.

We're committed to accessibility

We are committed to web standards, including the latest web standards for accessibility. We're currently working towards compliance for WCAG 2.1 AA standards meaning that anyone with access to the internet, on any device, assistive or other, can learn with us. The work we do to make iQualify accessible means that it's possible for people using a keyboard or assistive device to navigate easily around the platform, know where they are within a course or a page, have headings and content read out to them, follow links, and take quizzes. We're compatible with screen readers and other output devices and software that support the WCAG standards.

We need your help making learning accessible

You can help to make your content accessible by taking these steps for common content elements:

  • When when embedding or linking to files for readings or additional information, make sure they can be supported by any device - PDF is best, and keep them below the maximum recommended file size of 300kb.

  • Add alt-text to images describing what the image portrays for use by screen readers.

  • Either use our inbuilt transcript feature, so that people who aren't able to hear the video clearly can read the script whether online or offline, or add closed captions/subtitles to externally hosted videos, when you are certain learners won't be offline.

Working towards AA compliance

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. iQualify is working towards full compliance with WCAG 2.1 level AA.
