Accessibility Testing Results
Camtasia Studio Software has its own VPAT and Accessibility statement web page. However, there remain several issues and as this it a largely visually led program using all elements with a screen reader application is not possible. But for other users it is relatively easy to use because the menus are well organized, the buttons are visible with clear text and users get feedback with alert messages. There are some issues with alternative text provision and media shortcut keys which may clash with some assistive technologies.
|16||Built in accessibility checks||All main elements of this application respond to built in system assistive technologies (AT) and accessibility options e.g. Narrator or VoiceOver, sticky keys, onscreen keyboard, Zoom or Magnifier, high contrast mode. The content creation cannot be assessed but it is possible to make it accessible with the application. Checking by: Manual using the built in AT and accessibility options|
|17||Application works with External Assistive Technologies||All main elements of the application respond to external AT, such as Lightning Express magnification and screen readers. It is hard for screen reader users to work with images and videos. Checking by: High contrast mode settings, Lightning Express magnification, NVAD Screen reading|
|18||Text or other alternatives for image elements.||Some images do not have alternative text such as "Show Timeline". Moreover, the user can not add any alternative text to the images which he/she uses as part of this application but as the end product tends to be an animation or video it is possible to add audio descriptions or captioning. Checking by: Thunder Screen reading|
|19||Keyboard / Alternative input with focus||It is easy to access by simply using a keyboard, but it needs to be explained clearly to a screen reader user as there are so many combinations and some may conflict with the screen reader software. Checking by: Thunder Screen reading|
|20||Labels for objects, fields or controls||Some labels (such as Task List) dont have alternative text which may cause problems with screen reader users. Checking by: Thunder Screen reading|
|21||Audio alerts have visual cues||It has sound alerts and visual messages when choosing any wrong files.|
|22||Alternatives for Video / Animation||Captioning and audio descriptions can be added to all animations and videos produced with this program. It does not have video or animation help files or tour guides.|
|23||Media events offer user control||It is easy to access by keyboard, but it has special standard interface design with standard controls for all media elements. For example, playing the video by clicking (Ctrl+Space).|
|24||Textual Information for screen reader||Some actions and menu items can be heard, but no content generation, so when making text captions the user has to know where they are within the image and this is not easy for screen reader users.|
|25||Keyboard shortcut keys offered||There are shortcut keys and these can be seen in the menus, but some of them are not standard keyboard shortcuts, such as media standards.|
|26||Save user preferences for style and zoom||Cannot change styles and colour, increase font size on the menus but content items can be changed to suit the user and the program only allows for zoom within media files. The user is dependent on external AT or built in accessibility features which work well with the program.|
|27||Timed events can be altered||Not applicable.|
|28||Change colours and contrast||There are no colour menu options on this application, but its possible to change it through built in Operating System options. Contrast levels are good and text options within media can be altered.|
