Accessibility is a constant focus in the development of NCDA Online Courses. That is why the National Council on Disability Affairs has selected Moodle Learning Management System as the preferred system for this platform. With every Moodle release, they dedicate resources to improve accessibility to ensure that our software is accessible to everyone who uses it. Moodle is keen to hear from people with suggestions for making Moodle.org more accessible.
This website is built according to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) level AA.

- Change the background, text color, and fonts using browser plugins.
- Navigate the website using only a keyboard.

The Accessibility conformance report (VPAT) for Moodle Learning Management System (LMS) is a statement from MoodleTM on how Moodle LMS complies with the WCAG 2.1 accessibility guidelines.
Moodle LMS obtained WCAG 2.1 level AA accreditation for Moodle 3.10 which means it now meets WCAG 2.1 AA level compliance. Moodle will continue to keep this accreditation up-to-date with follow-up audits for future releases.
Moodle includes an ‘Accessibility Checker’ in Moodle’s default Atto Text Editor, which scans course content and alerts users to a range of accessibility issues that may be found within the text.
Moodle 3.11 introduced the Brickfield Accessibility Starter Toolkit. This toolkit assists teachers in building accessible course content by checking the course for common accessibility concerns and provides detailed reports on issues found. Moodle Academy uses this tool to help test for accessibility issues before courses are made available to learners.
