Accessibility updates [April 2018]

Over the last several months we have been doing a lot of work to make it easier for ScreenSteps Knowledge Bases to meet accessibility standards. These standards are often required by higher educational institutions.

List of improvements

Improved aria labels across the application

Aria labels have been updated across the application making ScreenSteps sites work better with screen readers.

Inline links now use a modal that meets accessibility standards with aria labels and keyboard navigation.

Color defaults and site color editor

We have made improvements to how color styles can be applied to your site. Color presets are now AA WCAG 2.0 compliant. The the color editing tools make it very simple to achieve AAA compliance if that is what you require.

Users who use the keyboard to navigate through a site can now skip navigation and jump to the main content area. This is helpful for users who are using screen reader applications.
