Is JASP accessible to the visually impaired?

Institutions of higher education in the United States are beginning to ban, from teaching labs, software that is not certified to meet national accessibility standards. See https://www.section508.gov/sell/vpat And here's and example of one university's software accessibility policy: https://accessibility.osu.edu/digital-accessibility-policy/minimum-digital-accessibility-standards/

Does JASP meet these standards? If so, it will be easier for American institutions, and individual instructors at those institutions, to adopt and/or continue using JASP.

  • Dear Andersony3k,

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We have discussed this with several people already, and are considering how to make the necessary changes. Right now, the only thing that JASP allows is to increase and decrease the font size. We will take a close look at these standards and develop a plan on how to meet them.

    Cheers,

  • Actually, we also offer color palettes for the color blind, and we have keyboard shortcuts for most of our navigation tasks. We will make a list of what we do now and add it to the FAQ on our website.
