Accessibility of Tuva Tools
As students use the Tuva tools as part of instruction or assessment, we are committed to making the Tuva tools accessible and usable for all students, including those with cognitive or physical disabilities.
Learn more about the accessibility supports and features that are currently available as part of the Tuva tools to help address various disabilities.
Case Size & Font Size
Tuva’s Data Exploration Tool allows people to increase the font size and the case size in the graphing area ensuring people with low visual acuity can perceive all graphical information.
Tuva’s Data Exploration Tool provides multiple foreground and background color settings making the tools accessible for people with color blindness and contrast sensitivity.
Default (Black on White)
Yellow on Blue
Reverse Contrast (White on Black)
Black on Rose
The Tuva Tools also provide colorblind friendly options for the data colors beyond the standard set of colors.
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.
Tuva’s Data Exploration Tool includes descriptive and contextual ARIA labels to ensure people with low vision and blindness can analyze data.
Turning Animations On or Off
Tuva’s Data Exploration Tool is 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 people with epilepsy, so we offer everyone the option to disable data animations.
