These descriptions are picked up by a screen reader and allow isually or cognitively disabled users to experience the content and function of the non-text content on the website. With our content blocks, all non-text content can be supplemented with alternative text to fulfill this compliance standard. Any users interacting with this content through the use of assistive technology will be able to enjoy your SchoolBlocks Website regardless of disability.
Those who have a color-blindness disability need to be able to distinguish text over background color. This applies to everything on your site - buttons, links, text on images. All aspects of the SchoolBlocks platform have been engineered with this in mind.
These standards define that the background colors for the page must be 3 times darker (or lighter) than the text color for large text (18pt or 14pt bold), and 4.5 times darker (or lighter) for small text. We have applied proper colors to meet these ratios throughout the site, ensuring that our features are available to any user.
Any data in tables or charts on the website must have header and row identifiers to display information or data. Data table captions and summaries should be used where appropriate to help a person using a screen reader understand the information in the table.
We also go a step further in addressing these challenges with collaboration from ADA compliance by offering specialized training and support to all website contributors. Specialized features are also being developed to ensure all content stays compliant over time.
All aspects have been designed with proper cascading heading structures, as well as many other internal aspects to ensure any user, regardless of sensory disability, can easily navigate the website and it's contents.
SchoolBlocks is also completely usable through just a keyboard! Designed with WAI-ARIA standards in mind, the system is coherent and concise when it comes to all navigation methods.
Through our advanced integrations, linking any content from major video hosts like those listed above will provide an embedded video player with closed captioning available right on the webpage, without having to navigate away from the website!
Audio content can also be easily supplemented with descriptive text transcripts with the SchoolBlocks modular content system. Even personal audio and video files from Google Drive/ Microsoft OneDrive can be integrated with complete compliance.
Our advanced integrations with 3rd party tools like Google Forms allow users of SchoolBlocks to embed forms right on the webpage, ensuring any feedback is obtained through compliant and accessible methods.
SchoolBlocks goes further in integration than any other solution today, letting you choose the best tool on the market rather than an internal feature. We ensure these integrations are presented in a coherent fashion to meet the needs of any user.
