Introduction

Your platform is committed to providing accessible experiences for all users, regardless of their abilities or impairments. The learner experience of your platform is thus accessible using screen readers and keyboard navigation in the following areas:

  • Login page
  • Self-registration page
  • Reset Password page
  • Legal agreements: Privacy Policy, Cookie Policy and Terms & Condition
  • Header (including the global search box and the related quick results window), user menu, notifications and gamification panels
  • Footer

This article lists the tools you can use to navigate the above-mentioned areas of the platform.

Screen Readers

You can navigate the platform and interact with it via a screen reader. We test our interface with NDVA and JAWS on Microsoft Windows, with Chrome and Mozilla Firefox.

Keyboard Navigation

Navigate your learning experience with ease using a keyboard. The keyboard navigation is enabled by default on Windows computers, as well as on Google Chrome with any operating system, but it must be enabled manually when using Safari and Mozilla browsers on Mac. Here is how to enable it:

Safari

  1. Open your Safari browser, then go to Safari on the menu bar and choose Preferences.
  2. Click the Advanced tab.
  3. Mark the accessibility option that lets you Press Tab to highlight each item on a webpage.

Mozilla Firefox

  1. Open your Mozilla Firefox browser, then go to Firefox on the menu bar and choose Preferences.
  2. Move to the Privacy & Security tab, and flag the Prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser option.
  3. Restart your browser to make your changes effective

Shortcuts

Docebo supports keyboard shortcuts for easy navigation, but please consider the following:

  • Some keyboard shortcuts only work if you’ve turned them on.
  • Keyboard shortcuts do not work on all keyboards.
  • Keyboard navigation has been tested in all of the browsers supported by Docebo

The basic keyboard navigation mainly used the Tab key to navigate the interface through links, buttons, form inputs, and ay other focusable elements. The Enter key selects links and the Enter Key or the Spacebar selects buttons. The arrow keys are used to navigate links within menus, options in drop-down menus, checkboxes, and so on. Here follows a table listing the main accepted keyboard input:

Zoom

The platform interface has a responsive design allowing you to zoom the user interface up to 400% without loss of information or functionality, and without requiring scrolling in two dimensions. You can also resize the browser windows to adapt content according to your needs or to the size of the screen display you are using.
