We publish the following information about our courses. A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT™) is a document that explains how information and communication technology (ICT) products such as software, hardware, electronic content, and support documentation meet (or conform to) the Revised 508 Standards for IT accessibility.  

 

Below are VPATS that we’ve compiled for the technologies used by Accelerate Education courses:

Screen readers and Buzz

While many screen readers may work, Buzz is optimized for the NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) screen reader on Mozilla Firefox. Users install this third-party software and use it to read the Buzz application.

 

Buzz integrates with Texthelp's SpeechStream text-to-speech tool

The SpeechStream toolbar, from Texthelp, supports accessibility in a variety of ways, and Buzz makes it easy to integrate it.
