Add an accessibility statement to tell your learners how your eLearning resource is accessible.
What can I do?
- Help all of your learners by adding an accessibility statement to your eLearning resources.
- If possible include the following information:
- How the resource is accessible.
- Any parts of the resource which are not accessible and why.
- How people with accessibility requirements can access alternative accessible content if necessary.
- How people can contact your organisation to report any accessibility problems.
- The Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations require each organisation to produce an accessibility statement for all of their services. This recommendation echoes that good practice.
- An accessibility statement helps improve the user experience of disabled learners by detailing what is not achievable in the eLearning resource, thereby saving time and frustration.
- It gives links to alternative accessible content where relevant.
- It also gives learners the opportunity to contact someone if they have any accessibility issues.
