Inclusion and Accessibility

Our commitment to accessibility.

We are dedicated to ensuring our products are inclusive and meet the accessibility needs of our diverse customers. 

We believe in eliminating barriers in education and idea-sharing. We believe that everyone in the community should be able to use our product equally. We strive to create products that can be accessed using keyboard navigation and assistive technologies, such as screen readers.  

Our commitment to accessibility is demonstrated by Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) report and conformance to WCAG 2.1 Level A/AA (ISO/IEC 40500) and US Section 508.  We conduct regularly testing internally and via third party to make sure our latest products are accessible.  Our processes include design and coding best practices, identifying accessibility issues and addressing those issues.  This is a continual process followed over the product development lifecycle.  All our VPAT reports are readily available and can be accessed from our ScreenPal VPATs Home page.

We want all videos created using our products to be accessible, too.

We also want our users to make their videos accessible for everyone! We encourage people to create videos with closed captioning and player controls that have proper contrast through our product. 
  1. Closed Captions – There are four ways for our users add captions to their videos: 
    1. Upload a captions file
    2. Interactive Captions Editor
    3. Automated captions through Speech-to-Text
    4. Using a script (in Scripted Recordings) as the caption.
  2. For people looking to customize the appearance of the video player or add CTA buttons on our hosting platform, we give guidance on proper color contrast. The color picker will provide immediate feedback if a color doesn't meet the minimum contrast ratio defined by WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).
  3. Navigation of the video player can be accomplished using a keyboard and/or screen reader.

We want to hear from you if you encounter any barriers using our app, or if you have any ideas on how we can improve our accessibility.
