I'm working at a school for visually impaired and blind people in Germany and we are using Moodle. We did some modifications to core-modules like quiz.
Improvements / changes in our quiz-version:
- Question number gets marked as headline
If navigating with screenreader software (tested with JAWS6/7 and Webformator 2.3) you have build-in features like "jump to text" or "jump to next headline". So if you mark the question number as headline, a screenreader user presses a shortkey (offered by the screenreader) and is on the right place to answer the question.
- short keys for navigating for and back on question pages:
We are only using 1 question per page to make quiz usable especially for our blind participants. They know 1 question and at the end 2 switches. As a result, you get many question pages. There are currently links presented for back and next, but it is not easy to get with screenreader.
We implemented 2 shortkeys (Alt + . / Alt + ,) you can press for back and next, which makes it pretty easy for our blind people.
- True/false, shortanswer and multichoice questions:
The question is displayed as Alt-tag for input fields or radio buttons
It would be nice to see some of my mentioned improvements in the next versions of Moodle. Maybe there has to be a new debate about Moodle and support of Accesskeys?
Kind regards, Daniel
