Re: Creating surveys with Survey monkey as a screen reader user, and in a foreign language


From: Kornbrot, Diana

We also found surveys produced by surveymonkey accessible in JAWs [with IE or firefox, JAWs does not mix well with chrome - for anything, but if using chrome would recommend chromevox, unlike JAWs its free]
We also found surveygizmo and questionpro produced surveys accesssible

But, how accessible are these survey tools for generating surveys?
Has anyone generated a survey using surveymonkey or other commercial software?
If so please relate experiences.

I am sighted and use bold, italic and colours for emphasis, but concerned that screen readers do not pick up this form of emphasis
Any suggestions?

Yes, Survey Monkey is JAWS accessible. I did manage to create my
survey in the past. I am not quite sure about if you want to create in
a different language though. I would think that you shouldn't have any
problems with it.
