Screen Reader Compatibility
Tuva is committed to making data exploration accessible to all learners. By incorporating descriptive and contextual ARIA labels within Tuva's date exploration tools, we've ensured learners with visual and reading impairments can actively participate in data analysis.
ARIA labels have been strategically implemented across various components, including different cards, the toolbar menu, and the plotting area. These labels ensure that individuals with low vision and blindness can effectively analyze data using their preferred text-to-speech software.
To witness the text-to-speech feature in action, please watch the demonstration video below:
Data Sonification for Individuals with Blindness
We recognize the importance of providing inclusive data analysis tools for individuals with blindness, and we are currently developing a sonification system. This system will create an auditory representation of the visual data displayed in the plotting area, allowing users to engage with data through sound.
In response to valuable feedback received during initial testing, we have temporarily removed the feature to further improve its functionality and user experience. We are committed to refining our sonification system based on the feedback received and plan to make it available again for testing by teachers and students in the near future. We appreciate your patience and support as we work diligently to enhance this feature.
