Add alternative text for images
Ensure that everyone gets all the information they need from your course content! As part of our WCAG improvements, with alternative text for images, you can be sure that users who cannot view the image will still receive the relevant information. Alternative text is the written description of an image that is read out loud by screen readers to help visually impaired users navigate the content. Alternative text can also appear in place of an image on a webpage if the image can’t be loaded on users’ screens. For more information on how to write good alternative text, check out our help article here.
In an effort to make Easygenerator as accessible as possible for all users, we’ve added some improvements to our WCAG. In addition to our alternative text for images, we improved our ARIA references to make more visual icons supported by voice, we made keyboard navigation possible to users can navigate through a course without the need of a mouse, and we enhanced the contrast of our themes to make it easier for everyone to see. We are constantly working to make Easygenerator more accessible, so look out for more similar improvements in the future.
Choose whether to include HTML tags in XLIFF
To make the process of working with translation agencies easier, we’ve added the option to choose how to export courses in XLIFF. Now, you can choose to include HTML tags or leave them out as some agencies can’t support the functionality.
