Accessibility Statement

For OERs to be truly open they must be accessible. In the same way that a free resource does not mean that the resource is open, a resource is not open just because it is available. When OER projects are accessible, they become more:

  • inclusive, accounting for different methods, mediums, and modes of engaging with the content
  • sustainable, delivering content when tools and technologies break down
  • sharable, expanding reach and impact

Accessibility features of the web version of this resource

The web version of ¡Voy en camino! has been designed with accessibility in mind by incorporating the following features:

  • It has been optimized for people who use screen-reader technology.
    • all content can be navigated using a keyboard
    • links, headings, and tables are formatted to work with screen readers
    • images have alt tags
  • Videos have captions with transcripts available for download
  • Information is not conveyed by colour alone.
  • There is an option to increase font size (see tab on top right of screen).

The web version of this resource follows all guidelines in the BCcampus Checklist for Accessibility.

This book uses colour-coded backgrounds. In order to improve accessibility for font colours on these coloured backgrounds, we have made the following alterations:

  • In sections where the background colour is dark, links have been highlighted in white so that there is sufficient contrast for readability.
  • Glossary terms are written in a black font with a light-coloured highlight so that there is sufficient contrast.
