      Description

      • Can the calendar be more compatible with assistive technology? Keyboard only?
        The calendar was difficult to operate without the use of a mouse.
        The calendar was difficult to navigate around using only keyboard interaction both on full screen display and as a panel on part of the main pages. This was true both in Internet Explorer and Firefox.
      • Is there an alternative to using colour only to distinguish between items in the calendar?
        If would beneficial if the information conveyed by colour only in the calendar could be adapted so is displayed in colour and perhaps text?

              Hi, Fiona.

              There are a few calendar related accessibility issues being worked on currently...

              http://tracker.moodle.org/secure/IssueNavigator!executeAdvanced.jspa?jqlQuery=component+in+%28calendar%29+and+parent+%3D+MDL-27843+ORDER+BY+created+DESC&runQuery=true&clear=true

              I believe the linked duplicate covers the first part of your suggestion, so you might want to contribute ideas to that issue.

              Could you expand on the your second idea of reducing the reliance on colour? Can you propose an alternative that would assist users of non-visual browsers?
