In this release, we made various accessibility improvements to Buzz and Publish Anywhere, including:

  • Buzz now informs screenreaders when a page is loading due to a navigation and when the page is done loading.
  • When using the high contrast theme:
    • The page loading visual indicator also uses a higher contrast.
    • Menus with a white background now display in a higher contrast when buttons are hovered.
  • Added a label name for the assessment and practice question activities attempts counters.
  • Changed the labels for the student Home page, so screenreaders read the labels before reading the score or progress.


  • Resolved an issue with incorrectly showing non-gradable activities in the student Gradebook.


Updates in version 2021.05.04.6006.

  • General system improvements.
