Web Accessibility

Web Accessibility is Skillsoft's implementation of Section 508 and W3C compliance standards. Skillsoft software functions with several assistive technologies, which are any electronic or information technologies that allow individuals with disabilities to utilize information on a computer that they would not be able to access otherwise.

Skillsoft supports and promotes Web Accessibility in its software applications and courseware. Skillsoft supports the following assistive technologies:

  • Screen reader software (a speech synthesizer technology that converts text to audio)
  • Shortcut keys for all mouse actions
  • Alternative images to replace animated graphics
  • Elimination of screen refresh rates between 5Hz and 55Hz, which can cause seizures for some individuals

If you require the support of one or more of the above technologies, enable Web Accessibility.
