Embracing Digital Accessibility: An Update
In December 2021, The Quitch team joined by Dr Scott Hollier from the Centre for Accessibility Australia conducted an accessibility workshop. Since that time, the team has committed to keeping accessibility in mind during the design and development cycle of our products. Following standards such as WCAG 2.0 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1, we are proud to announce the following features on the Quitch mobile app:
Using your device’s native text scaling feature will now be reflected in both android and iOS devices.
TalkBack and Voiceover
The Quitch app has optimised its support of device screen reader functions and assistive technologies. Gestures related to these functions interact with navigation on our app, also we have updated alt-text for buttons and menus.
Swiping and Navigation
Swiping between menus on the classes tab and inbox has been optimised to be more user-friendly.
Design and colour contrast in-app is in line with guidelines for the visually impaired. We are committed to this moving forward.
