Our approach to an equitable reading experience is to integrate accessibility into the design and development process – from the beginning. In addition, we perform daily, automated tests to validate accessibility and perform comprehensive full platform testing for each release.
The eReader Platform supports the use of assistive technologies that improve the functional capabilities of individuals with accessible needs. The Platform renders content compatible with common screen readers and is continuously being developed to support additional programs and maximize current compatibility.
Testing BryteWave eReader involved a combination of manual and functional testing. The BryteWave eReader was comprehensively tested by a third-party accessibility consulting firm using JAWS 2020 and VoiceOver for OSX, exclusive use of the keyboard, and manual inspection of code and Accessibility API output. It was also functionally tested with several user flows with JAWS 2020 screen reader, VoiceOver screen reader for OSX, ZoomText 2020 screen magnifier, and Dragon® NaturallySpeaking 15.5 speech recognition software.
