Accessibility in Award Force

At Award Force we think everyone should be able to access beautiful software and so accessibility is at the core of what we create. Award Force is compliant - with some exceptions - with WCAG 2.1 AA standards, Revised Section 508 Standards, and EN 301 549 Accessibility Requirements. 

Captions

The Award Force video player supports captions which provide text alternatives for video content. Entrants who submit captions can upload their own caption files which will display on-screen subtitles during playback.

Transcripts

Transcripts can be uploaded for audio and video content separately of captions as fields in Award Force.

Keyboard navigation

The Award Force app can be navigated by keyboard only for users who cannot or do not wish to use a mouse.

Assistive technology

The Award Force app fully supports assistive technologies like screen-readers which convey content to users. Award Force follows WCAG 2.1 AA standards for role, state, and property names which allow assistive technologies to interpret content.

User preferences

Award Force will inherit from the user's browser settings for font size allowing users to zoom in or out of the application. The app is fully responsive, can be accessed from phones, tablets, and desktops, and has been tested on window zoom up to 500%.

Colour contrast

The default colour theme in Award Force has been carefully selected to ensure sufficient colour contrast between the text and the background.
