WebAssign is committed to providing powerful education tools and content for all students, including students with disabilities.
Accessibility for students with visual impairments is particularly an issue with science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) content, which traditionally uses complex notation and figures. WebAssign has worked to provide accessible representations of both notation and figures to screen readers. Students entering math notation can use the same "calculator" notation that is read by the screen reader without worrying about the visual representation of the math.
Students can use their keyboards to navigate the WebAssign application and complete activities.
Accessible content in WebAssign is tested using the following screen reader versions:
- JAWS® 2019
- ZoomText® Magnifier 2019
- NVDA 2019.2.1. in conjunction with MathPlayer™ 4
