Hi Rachel,
We have done some preliminary accessibility testing of Revel and found that
it's pretty accessible except for the Interactive Exercises which don't
always have alternative text. But overall, we were pleased with the
platform. We tested it with the Beebe 8e Interpersonal Communication
textbook. As you probably know, the platform can be accessible, but the
textbook might not be, so make sure to find out how accessible (does it
have alt text for images?) the textbook is.
We have a wonderful Digital Learning Consultant from Pearson (
paul.coleman at pearson.com) who is working with us to test their platforms
and help develop work-arounds where there are barriers. You might reach out
to him about Revel.
