Grid Format by Gareth Barnard gets keyboard controls for enhanced Accessibility

1909

If you’re a Grid Course Format enthusiast you’ll be happy to hear that Gareth has been hard at work improving the format for accessibility. Specifically, he’s adding the ability to control which grid is highlighted using limited keyboard controls.

According to the post at Moodle.org,

I’ve been working away on CONTRIB-3240 to get accessibility into the Grid Format but have reached a point where I need to know more about WIA-ARIA.  However, in the process of adding keyboard support I’ve done with the help of Mary Evans and Andrew Nicols some big improvements as seen on this screen cast.

This is a development release at this time. Check out the video below for a quick demonstration by the plugin co-author [direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ducd-c-CwO0].

  1. Correction! 🙂 – Only the ‘left’ / ‘right’ and ‘esc’ work. TAB etc. pending information about WIA-ARIA and how it can be integrated into the format for full accessibility support. Full details on CONTRIB-3240 and in the ‘Readme’ file.

  2. thanks for the hard work you are putting into the course format. i use it a lot for most of my clients. going to love these additions as well. cheers

  3. Gareth,
    I am wanting to change the colour of the highlighted grid because it is in conflict with our theme. Can you direct me to where I can change this please. Thanks a bundle
