Absorb is proud of our commitment to achieving WCAG 2.0 compliance for both learners and administrators. Enhancements to our user interface (UI) design empowers superior learning experiences for those with visual and hearing impairments. Meanwhile, administrators can navigate an intuitive interface designed to conform to WCAG 2.0 standards, providing optimal functionality to the greatest possible number of learner-users.
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) compliance, specifically WCAG 2.0, is a set of technical standards ensuring web content is perceivable both visually and sonically, operable with the minimum of a keyboard (but also with other inputs), presented in a logical and coherent fashion, and robust in its current and future cross-compatibility. Absorb strives to set the standard for WCAG 2.0 compliance for learning management systems.
Beyond benefitting from providing equal access to learning materials, choosing an LMS that supports WCAG 2.0 standards keeps business safe from regulators and potential legal expose.
Not automatically. Absorb LMS meets WCAG 2.0 standards but also provides complete freedom when it comes to creating your training materials. Ensuring training meets specific standards and criteria is your responsibility, but if you have questions or need guidance our Learning Solutions team will be happy to assist.
Examples of the updates made to ensure Absorb conforms to WCAG 2.0 standards include using high contrast colors, unique page identifiers, accessible text editors, consistent UI elements, iconography and more.
