If you have images in your exam questions, add alt text to them that describes the meaningful content of the image that is conveyed to sighted students.
For example, if you had this question: “Answer in Spanish: what color is the ball in the image?” You should add alt text that says “dog with a red ball”.
Add alt text by clicking on the image and selecting “Embed Image” in the toolbar.
Find the Alt text field and add your description.
Make sure to create your quiz through the Quizzes tab on the course navigation menu and not through Assignments. If you use the + Quiz/Test button with the BETA flag in Assignments, you will be using the new interface (see below).
Follow the language attribute tutorial for details. You can even add language attributes to the text of answer options by selecting the Edit button (pencil icon) that appears on the right side of the page across from each answer option.
For languages with non-Latin alphabets, a screen reader may not read out the content of the text at all without a language attribute. For example, watch this video of a screen reader reading various Asian languages in which the characters are not read correctly without the proper language attribute.
Screen readers are inconsistent in how abbreviations are read out; sometimes it is read as a word, sometimes as individual letters. Additionally, text in all caps is sometimes read out letter-by-letter rather than as a single word.
If you are using the Multiple Answer type, include language in your question that says “Multiple answers are possible.” or “Select all that apply:”. This helps clarify for screen reader users that it is not a single-answer question.
For example, “Questions 3-7 are about the following prompt.” or “Read the following prompt, then answer questions 2-5 about its content.”
For example, write “Fill in the blank in the following sentence:” at the beginning of the question.
Screen readers often read out blanks as “underscore underscore underscore …”, so it is important to let students know ahead of time that it is a fill-in-the-blank question so that it is less confusing when they reach it.
In the Rich Content Editor toolbar, select the “Insert Math Equation” button so that the content is rendered properly for screen reader users.
If you must have a time limit, make sure you know how to provide extra time accommodations for individual students.
