Advanced-Accessibility settings

From Gomo Wiki


An accessible version of the project with the associated controls over the accessibility features is available for the HTML/PC published version of the project only. Depending on which options you choose, the learner will be given the choice of whether to run a standard version of the course or an accessible one which will have the following accessibility features:

  • use of the 'tab' key to move the focus from one screen element to another.
  • screen elements will be highlighted when they have the focus.
  • if graphical buttons have been used within the project they will be replaced with the alternative 'description' text associated with the graphical image used for button.
  • 'dynamic focus shifting' - for example, if a 'confirm' button is selected then the focus automatically shifts to any sub screen which is displayed as a result.
  • the display and behaviour of a variety of features will be adjusted for accessibility. For example, Select From List (SFL) and Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) assets will be displayed as HTML 'form elements' to make them more accessible.
