Accessibility review

During a Review, reviewers can easily see which items are set to be focusable and understand a page’s tab order. They can also identify what, if any alt or screen reader text has been added to elements – all without any special tools. If they find an issue they can comment on the accessibility text and the comment is automatically flagged as an accessibility issue in the review comment tracking.

Accessibility text and focus

For any item, add additional supportive accessibility text read by screen readers and enable or disable focus on each element. Do all this, inline, while creating your content. No need to open additional windows or pop ups.

Closed captioning

Closed captions may be uploaded as a SRT, VTT, SBV, or SUB file.

Content sensitive structure suggestions

Creating a useful content structure using H1-H6 tags is critical to providing accessible content. When adding content to your page the Add a Section bar automatically adjusts suggestions based on the location on the page such as suggesting H1 Heading Text at the top of the page and changing that that suggestion to H2 as you add content further down.

Inline WCAG assistance

The Accessibility Settings tab includes context-specific tips and advice to help you make content more accessible to all learners and meet WCAG standards.

Inline author audit

When adding elements to your page, if the element is missing accessibility related features (e.g., alt text) authors are warned inline as they work on the element.

Language ID for screen readers

No need for special IDs to support Flash content, following HTML5 standards localized content automatically identifies the course language.

Reuse for Accessibility

Save time and money when you add images to your content. Your image description is auto added to the ALT text field, making it easy to create accessibility text once, and instantly use it for all cases, even allowing updates to individual unique cases.

Section 508 and WCAG 2 AA support

Supports learners using assistive technologies that enables you to make sure all learners can maximize the use of your content.


Add complete page, audio and/or video transcripts to courses.

Triggering closed captions

Adaptive testing

Based on passing scores, allow users to test out of all or part of the training materials.

Change test questions to practice and the opposite

With a simple drag and drop in the course structure, turn the practice question into a test question or vice versa.

Customizable passing score

Set your course overall passing score and even set individual passing scores for a large test broken up into smaller segments.


Provide overall feedback for questions, use default course feedback, set individual response feedback, custom feedback with multimedia responses and more. Set what types of feedback a learner can review, and under what conditions they can review that feedback.

Focused review

Authors can turn on or off the ability for their learners to jump to the learning material paired with questions they had difficulty with.

Free-form design

WYSIWYG design enables authors to fully customize the look and feel of test questions including the ability to add audio, video or image files, buttons, hotspots and much more.

Inline quiz exercises

Inline quiz exercises allow interactivity and knowledge checks right inside learning content, especially helpful in longer Flow pages. Inline questions include True False, Multiple Choice/Select, Card Sort, Word Select (Pull down, text entry and drag drop).

Multi-test settings

Break your course test up into smaller individual tests, even setting different passing scores for each test in the course.

Randomize answer order

Shuffle the order of your answer choices, even determine which answers are shuffled and which are not.

Randomize question order

Shuffle the order of questions for each topic and/or the order of all the topics being tested.
