Agilix is dedicated to making Buzz accessible and follows 508 and WGAC 2.0 standards in design and development. These efforts are documented in our VPAT and WGAC 2.0 AA statement.

Screen readers and Buzz

While many screen readers may work, Buzz supports the NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) screen reader. Users install this third-party software and use it to read the Buzz application.

On certain screens in Buzz, there are inline help items that users access by clicking on a question mark bubble.

These items are not currently supported by screen readers. Users can access the text by selecting the Help tool in the Main Menu on the screen the bubble appears on, and reviewing the Accessibility notes box in the article that opens.

Apparently Buzz student app accommodates screen readers but could you explain what exactly that means? Is there a feature (icon/button) in buzz or does the student have to access a screen reader app from the web that is compatible with Buzz?

Thank you,

Hi Annettte, 

We support the NVDA screen reader. We've updated this article, and the link provides additional information about this screen reader and how it is used. 

Thanks for the question! Let us know if you need more information.
