eLearning Accessibility Statement

Elements eLearning Portal is committed to ensuring accessibility for everyone. Elements eLearning is committed to making this eLearning portal and all course and interactions as accessible as possible to everyone, including people with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments. I continue to learn, while working towards improving the accessibility of this website and eLearning Portal to ensure we provide equal access to everyone.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of compliance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.

Wherever possible, Elements eLearning works to adhere to level AA of the WCAG 2.1 guidelines, which states that sites should be:

  • Perceivable: information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive
  • Operable: user interface components and navigation must be operable
  • Understandable: information and the operation of user interface must be understandable
  • Robust: content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies

All eLearning content is built with Articulate 360 software. You can find the Articulate 360 conformance reports here:

What I’m doing:

  • On this site, I use the LearnDash LMS course builder for structure. This enables learners to exit a course or interaction built in Articulate software and return to the course page, remaining on this website.
  • Within the eLearning content, all accessibility functions are enabled in the Articulate course player, providing learners with choices to empower the best possible individual user experience.
  • Videos have captions and video description where needed.
  • All courses with voice over audio have transcripts within the course player.
  • All images that have relevant meaning have alternative text.
  • I test to make sure color contrast is within WCAG2.1 AA guidelines.
  • I test each course, module, and interaction with the NVDA screen reader for usability with screen readers and keyboard navigation.

Where I need to improve:

  • I avoid using any aspect of Articulate software that is not yet accessibly compliant. This presents opportunities for creative workarounds in content presentation.
  • Transcripts for audio is included when voice over is used within the course player. However, I need to add the transcripts for when a user might want the screen reader to read everything.
  • I need to include keyboard navigation information for every course and interaction.
  • Courses listed in the Portal Course grid have two links, the image at the top and the button at the bottom of each card.
