Accessibility

Our Commitment

Our team at Labster is committed to providing educational material that engages and benefits all learners, including those with disabilities. Labster uses the WCAG 2.0 Level AA standards as the basis for our product development. This includes creating accessibility-aware Labster guidelines for new product development, prioritizing quality assurance before new products are released, and regularly updating and improving released products to meet WCAG 2.0 Level AA standards.

Accessibility is a priority for Labster throughout 2020 and our goal is to provide learners with over 100 simulations that are WCAG 2.0 Level AA accessible by the end of 2020. To achieve this important goal, we are currently improving newly developed features within our simulations. Our key current initiatives include:

  • Color-Blindness
    Many of our simulations are fully accessible for students with any type of color-blindness and we are currently conducting a review of all simulations to ensure that none of them rely solely on color for instructions in images or during quizzes.

  • Keyboard Navigation
    We currently have a certain number of simulations which are fully playable using keyboard navigation and we are working to significantly increase that number over the upcoming months.

  • Screen-Reader
    We are currently developing a screen-reader that allows students with disabilities to experience Labster’s high level of engagement, interaction and challenge.

  • Character Diversity
    In addition to providing modern and relevant story lines for our simulations, we strive to present a modern world as it relates to gender and sexuality and ethnic, racial and cultural diversity within the STEAM fields.
