At Cerego, we believe that digital learning should be inclusive and accessible to all. Our latest updates showcase this commitment, with major strides in screen reader compatibility.
Understanding Accessibility in Digital Learning
Before we dive into the specifics of our latest updates, it's crucial to understand the importance of web accessibility. Essentially, it's about making the web usable by everyone, regardless of physical or cognitive abilities. This can involve accommodating visual impairments, hearing loss, motor difficulties, and cognitive disorders, among others.
Two fundamental elements in the field of web accessibility are the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA). WCAG provides a wide range of recommendations for making web content more accessible, while ARIA helps improve the accessibility of web content and applications, particularly for people who rely on assistive technologies like screen readers.
Cerego's Commitment to Accessibility
In our latest release, we have gone to great lengths to ensure our platform adheres to WCAG guidelines and leverages ARIA to improve the experience for users relying on assistive technologies. We've primarily focused on enhancing our compatibility with screen readers, which are critical tools for visually impaired users, enabling them to interact with our digital content more effectively.
While we're proud of these advancements in screen reader compatibility, we recognize there's more to be done. The journey towards complete web accessibility is continuous and we are fully committed to it. From planning adjustments to color contrast for users with visual impairments to navigation improvements for users with motor difficulties, our mission is to make Cerego a more inclusive and friendly space for everyone.
We are aware that creating an accessible web experience is an ongoing journey. At Cerego, we're committed to this journey and to the idea that learning should be a universally accessible opportunity.
