Accessibility in Populi

Populi incorporates numerous elements to accommodate our users who need an accessible experience with our software.

  • Populi is designed according to web standards and common best-practices, which facilitates the use of third-party screen-reading software.
  • The entire interface is designed with high contrast-ratio text and navigation elements.
  • ARIA labels and landmarks (which identify non-text interface elements for screen readers) are in use throughout Populi.
  • The interface uses elements uniformly and consistently—for example, a trash can icon always means "delete".
  • The navigation and dialog boxes let you use your TAB key to move through the fields, and fields are highlighted with focus styles when you've selected one.

The items described here are limited to Populi itself. Content generated or uploaded by our users may be another story altogether. For example, the various interface elements in course lessons are designed with accessibility in mind, but a faculty user may incorporate text, images, and other elements in that lesson which do not meet accessibility requirements.

We are continually refining Populi to ensure it accommodates its users, and we take special care when customers report areas of our software that could stand further improvement. If you see a specific area where we could improve Populi's accessibility, we'd love to hear from you.
