Accessibility Enhancements

At Vyond, we are committed to diversity and inclusion. With this in mind we are happy to announce the addition of ARIA labels, accessible names, and keyboard focus in more places to ensure that users with different web use preferences can understand and interact with our studio features.

What are ARIA labels?

ARIA labels and accessible names use assistive technologies such as screen readers to provide more context and information about non-textual elements such as buttons and dropdown menus. Currently, you can find them in the log in, sign up, home and video listing pages.

Keyboard focus allows keyboard navigation throughout a page and is now also available on the home page, in Vyond Go and Quick Edit.

We continue to work on making Vyond accessible to all people, stay tuned for more accessibility updates in the near future.
