Tuva Accessibility Features

Everyone should be able to access data literacy. We’re committed to making that a reality.

We’re working hard to push the envelope on designing, developing, and testing the Tuva Data Exploration Tool to ensure it meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. By meeting these standards, Tuva will be in a position to make data literacy tools for learners with a variety of accessibility needs.

Keyboard Access

Tuva’s Data Exploration Tool accepts keyboard inputs in order to make the tools accessible to individuals with physical and motor skill challenges.

  • The keys that currently work with Tuva’s Data Exploration tool include: tab, space, enter, up arrow, down arrow, left arrow, right arrow. These keys will help learners navigate and select buttons, dropdown lists, and interact with menus and text areas.
  • Coming Soon: We are working to also incorporate shortcuts for the most used actions.

ARIA Labels for Voice Over

In conjunction with keyboard access, we’ve added descriptive and contextual ARIA labels to ensure people with low vision and blindness will be able to interact with and navigate throughout the Data Exploration Tool.

Turning Animations On or Off

The data tools are inherently animated to give learners dynamic visual feedback, helping them draw connections between the different representations of the data they’re analyzing. We’re also aware that visually dynamic content can cause seizures for persons with epilepsy, so we offer everyone the option to disable data animations in Tuva’s Data Exploration Tool.
