The Moodle collaborative accessibility group was founded in 2013 and open to any Moodle community member who wants to help improve Moodle's accessibility.
This session will provide an overview of the history of the group, and its overall mission. We will explore the issues that are created when trying to organize a global initiative to improve the accessibility of a product as well as the success the group has had so far
We will review the status of the top 10 areas of Moodle the group has identified of the last year as requiring accessibility improvements. These areas are:
- Expand and collapse states
- File picker
- Consistent heading structure
- Accessible files
- Course management
Finally we will discuss ways that community members can become active in the group and what ways the group can benefit community development.
