Industry compliant accessible learning

SoftChalk is designed to help you produce content in accordance with the internationally recognized Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level A and Level AA.

We regularly perform internal accessibility testing with screen reader technology to ensure that SoftChalk-produced content works as desired. As part of our ongoing commitment to accessible content authoring, we have made our current efforts available for review in the accessibility roadmap document found below.

Educators’ choice for creating accessible learning content

Use a content authoring tool recognized by specialists as a leader in addressing accessibility challenges to incorporate regulatory requirements into your everyday work. 

SoftChalk enables educators to produce content that is screen-readable and can be navigated by students who may be limited to using a keyboard only when accessing the content. Integrations with third-party tools, such as ReadSpeaker, enable additional functionality for learners who may benefit from having their content spoken aloud, in addition to reading their content text.

Continuous Accessibility Feedback and Support

2006: A visually impaired graduate student reviewed SoftChalk-produced content and provided suggestions for improvements;

2009: A formal review and recommendations were commissioned from the American Foundation for the Blind, which were implemented in 2010.

Since then, SoftChalk has solicited input from accessibility specialists at educational institutions who use SoftChalk in everyday practice, resulting in major product enhancements in 2012, 2014, 2016, and 2018.

For questions about accessibility, to report accessibility issues, or to provide input and feedback regarding accessibility features, please contact our Support Team contact our Support Team.
