A complete guide to create an Accessible eLearning course
(9)

Creating accessible online courses provides an opportunity for people with disabilities to learn successfully. Additionally, developing compliant courses reach a larger more inclusive audience, and it can be a legal issue. In the US, Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires that government and educational organizations make learning accessible (including eLearning). eLearning developers need to take into consideration creating eLearning that is accessible to people who are blind or visually impaired, deaf or hard of hearing, physically disabled, and developmentally disabled.

Participants will be provided with a sample captivate use-case and a workbook.

At the end of this session you will learn:
1. Definitions related to people with disabilities and developing eLearning content.
2. Benefits of creating accessible eLearning.
3. Steps to designing accessible courses.
4. Creating Section 508 compliant projects with Adobe Captivate.

Hello , An infographic being accessible would mean that a challenged person is able to understand what the infographic represents . In Captivate following can be done :

  1. You can insert a text caption on infographic citing the little details of what the infographic represents. You can also add accessibility title and description to the text which would be read out by the screen reader in published output.
  2. Alternately , you can also add accessibility title and description to the infographic itself which would be read out by the screen reader in published output.

Hope this answers your query.

Infographics are sometimes great ways to visually represent content (for example, displaying results of a study).  However, they aren’t always accessible for all.  Are there best practices for making infographics accessible?  What are the best ways to include infographics and ensure that all users have access to the information (i.e. would you recommend a figure caption, etc.)?  What are some ways to make an infographic accessible within Captivate?

Hello , Making an infographics accessible means a disabled user should be able to comprehend it. To make it accessible within Captivate , we can add accessibility title and description as something which describes the infographics . The screen reader reads it aloud when it is displayed . Hope this answers this your query.
