Re: accessibility of dokeos elearning platform

We have tested lots of e-learning platforms, mostly for small organisations. The accessibility has ranged from terrible to appalling. I can't think of any that our clients fixed to the level that I could recommend them.

We have also evaluated some from large organisations, like Articulate, and they were every bit as bad if not worse.

Hi again Pratik,
One follow-up question to this, if I may. Considering your vast knowledge in accessibility, what e-learning platforms would you recommend? Which ones support best accessibility? And if anyone else wants to chime in here, the more the merrier.

Hello Catherine,

We evaluated this platform for a client a few months ago. We found significant concerns regarding the platform and its ability to generate accessible content including videos with captioning. While I can't share the entire set of results, I can tell you that the summary was conclusive enough for us to recommend that our client not use this platform for employee training.

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with the elearning platform dokeos? Does it offer any accessibility?
