Accessibility as a best practice means ensuring there are no hurdles that prevent accessing or interacting with your content.
Whether your audience has physical or situational disabilities, limited access or restrictions, your signage should be accessible by all.
Acts and Bills
The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 was placed to prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability in programs conducted by federal agencies. Section 508 requires Federal electronic and information technology to be accessible to people with disabilities.
Carousel is dedicated to providing software solutions to achieve accessibility goals within digital signage. Carousel Cloud's accessibility options allow for all content creators and observers to participate.
- The Carousel Cloud web interface is designed to be approachable and easy to use. Even if content creators are not technical or artistic, the use of templates only requires domain knowledge to create an impact in their digital signage ecosystem.
- The Carousel user interface supports multiple languages which will automatically switch based on a user's browser settings.
- Colors used in the software are intended to provide contrast and enable those with colorblindness to use.
- Our channel designers aim to produce templates with clear readability in mind. Selecting specific color combinations can alleviate any difficulty or inability to view the messages, ensuring they are viewable for everyone.
The Carousel Accessibility Site
The Carousel Accessibility Site allows the visually impaired to take advantage of visual communications with the help of assistive technologies (like screen readers). With the simple click of a button, you can turn your Carousel channel into an alternative browsing experience. The accessibility site also provides a public website for viewers of your content to see on-demand or anytime a screen isn't the best method of consuming those messages.
