Hello all ~
I'm working with CANnect, under a grant from Sloan C, on a Moodle accessibility study, focused specifically on blind and visually-impaired users. I'd like for my work to complement, rather than duplicate or fork, the good work Moodlers have already done.
Later this month I'm going to Carroll Center for the Blind in Boston to observe user behavior and do some testing, and then in August I'll be doing user testing at our offices here in Portland.
I've read a lot about Moodle and accessibility here, and read back in these forums for a while. I have some specific questions:
- It looks like the last change to the accessibility specification was over 2 years ago. How current is it?
- Are there particular issues or problems around which I should focus my accessibility testing? I have plans of my own, but would like help from you folks who have been plugged into Moodle for some time.
By trade I'm a UX designer, on the web for nearly 15 years. I'm fluent in the core technologies and experienced at user testing. What I've never done is test users with visual disabilities. I should get a good start at that in Boston.
Thanks in advance. Any and all advice and feedback appreciated.
