Accessibility at Teachable
We believe that by making the products we build more inclusive, we further enable the transformative power of knowledge in this world. That's why we are committed to working towards improved accessibility.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Teachable is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the platform do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
Teachable understands that accessibility is important and is committed to promoting accessibility on our platform. We follow industry standards wherever possible in order to meet that goal. When making updates to our platform, we strive to adopt the specifications established by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). We also look to incorporate the standards established in Authoring Tool Accessibility Guidelines (ATAG) for product development.
Teachable evaluates and improves the accessibility of the platform through user feedback, interviews, and self-evaluation methods such as keyboard testing and using automated accessibility tools.
