Accessibility FAQ

Advorto invests a considerable amount of time and resource to ensure that the software service that it delivers is accessible to all users. The Advorto application software has been designed to be compliant with W3C Accessibility Initiative Guidelines - Single A, Double A and Triple AAA and also complies with W3C accessibility guidelines. Additionally, the software can be used in conjunction with screen readers such as JAWS.

The design has also been optimised to ensure that it is not reliant on a user being able to discern colour alone (always in conjunction with shape), sound (always in conjunction with visual prompting). All of the system functions can also be driven without the need to operate a mouse.

Q: Can the product be used without the use of sound?
A: The system can be used in its entirety without requiring sound.


Q: Can the product assist users who cannot see an object's context on the screen, by assigning each object a unique and descriptive label? 
A: The system can assign each screen object with a unique and descriptive label in order to assist users who cannot see an object’s context on screen.


Q: Can the product expose keyboard focus?
A: Many accessibility aids need to identify the location of the keyboard focus in order to pass that information to users. For example, screen-magnification utilities pan to include the text or object being read, enlarging that portion of the screen. Advorto supports the use of screen magnification utilities that can provide keyboard focus to a user.


Q: Can a screen reader user access and hear every element of the interface?
A: Screen magnification users must be able to focus on all elements in an intuitive manner. To that end the interface should not be cluttered and complex. The Advorto interface is clear and uncluttered so as to ensure that screen magnification utilities may work in an optimised fashion.


Q: Do all features of the application have a keyboard accessible alternative function to the use of a mouse? 
A: Yes. Alternatives to using a mouse to navigate the Advorto system are standard.


Q: Does the system rely on a standard QWERTY keyboard that does not have to be invoked with key combinations that rely on more than 3 simultaneous key presses? 
A: There are no actions that require any more than 3 simultaneous key presses – the system use is based upon the use of a QWERTY keyboard.


Q: Do all pages conform to WCAG 2.0 Level AA all checkpoints satisfied? 
A: Advorto pages conform to WCAG 2.0 Level AA checkpoints.


Q: Does the product allow users to size objects on the screen and follow system metrics for preset user preferences? 
A: The system allows for users to re-size objects on screen.


Q: Does the product only use colour to enhance, emphasise, or reiterate information shown by OTHER means rather than as the sole means to convey information? 
A: The Advorto system utilises shape AND colour to convey information.


Q: Does the product provide a user interface that is flexible enough to accommodate the user's needs and preferences?
A: The user interface is flexible in order to accommodate user’s needs and preferences, these can be set to default settings that the system recognises by their login details.


Q: Is the product  dependent on bespoke graphics drivers or hardware, as these are likely to cause problems for screen readers and magnifications systems?
A: The Advorto system does not rely upon bespoke graphics drivers or hardware, standards based utilities are used in all apects of the system build.

 

Q: Is the user interface Microsoft Windows compatible as this is likely to be the most Access Technology friendly?
A: The Advorto system is MS Windows compatible.
