How much of the AA standart from the w3c is done in moodle 2.4 and 2.6?
 

Hello, i search in the documentation of the site, but it doesn't reffer to this rule.

 

I need to know how many rules of the accesibility list from the w3c(http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/) satisfy.

Also i need to know if all display "things" are coded in the theme files, or i should modify something else.

 

Thanks.

I would also say join the discussion. There is the Moodle accessibility group you can join at http://collaborate.athenpro.org/accounts/register/. The group is working well with Moodle HQ to improve Moodles accessibility and let the experts Martin mentioned argue about which approaches are the best For Moodle.

Note that Moodle cannot 'do' AA accessibility standard. Moodle can help, but when at teacher uploads an image, they must add alt text. When a teacher links to a video, they must ensure there is a transcript, the teacher must no write pink text on a yellow background. Etc.

Of course, i only reffer to the "core" of the LMS, not the contents

It's something we aim for (we spend a lot of time on accessibility), but it depends on the features you are using and the theme you are using, as well as the exact screen reader technology you are using.   Very hard to get perfect (and even then the accessibility experts still argue on what is best)

And things can change if you use plugins.
