In this episode of the Podcast, we've invited Ollie Foster from Kineo to talk about Accessibility in Adapt.

Accessibility is an often blanket term used so during this episode we dive into some of the specific needs of learners that benefit from these elements and how Adapt has managed to address them. We discuss how Adapt has incorporated feedback from users to ensure it remains one of the most accessible Authoring Tools on the market.

Kineo has created an extension with accessibility improvements that allow a learner to choose which elements should be turned off or on inside of the course. If you'd like to try it yourself and give feedback you can do so here -
