Happy new year, community! A new year brings a new focus, and if accessibility isn’t already on the forefront of your mind, make this the year it is. We’re making it even easier for you to ensure your forms are accessible by launching our Accessibility Checker, available on all plans. 

 

You can read more in depth about the features of the checker here. As a quick overview, the accessibility checker will scan your form for: 

 

  • Color contracts

  • Alt text

  • External blocks


Take a peek at the video below to see how this feature works!

 

 

As always, let us know what you think of this feature, and drop any feedback you have in the comments below.

Hello dear community and @Liz ! :)

Due to upcoming laws (e.g. the German "Barrierefreiheitsstärkungsgesetz" BFSG, which is part of the EU directive on accessibility (European Accessibility Act, EAA for short), accessibility is becoming increasingly important.

 

 

Question:
Are there also plans to implement functions such as voice control or a read-aloud function for Typeform?

It would be great if such functions are planned and we find out about them.

 

Thank you very much!

Kind regards
