Hi, all.

Our marketing team has started using Adobe Spark for some of their news stories/brochures/PR pieces. Have you dealt with this tool before? Any recs on dealing with its accessibility problems? If this were being used at your institution, would you consider acceptable if there were an accessible version of the same content offered in a prominent way?

You might also want to upvote accessibility on the Spark forum<https://adobespark.uservoice.com/forums/329007-spark-post-feature-suggestion/suggestions/17608135-accessibility>.

Happy Monday,

Hi there,

Thank you for reaching out to us.

Unfortunately, Adobe Spark is not compliant to accessibility at the moment, but it is something we are looking into!

I want to connect you to our Adobe Spark Community Voice page- if you go to https://adobespark.uservoice.com, you will find a direct line to the developers for sharing suggestions that you think of as you use our apps. They are watching closely over there and are always looking out for new ideas!

I need accessibility documentation for Adobe Spark. Please send a link to the VPAT for this tool as well as answers to the following questions:
Can users perform all functions without a mouse?
Has the tool, product, or site been tested using assistive technologies?
If so, which assistive technology tools? What methods were used? What were the findings? Who did the testing?
If the product supports audio, does it support captions?
If the product produces output, is the output accessible?
What other accessibility documentation is available?
What are common accessibility-related issues with the products?

This email is a service from Adobe Spark Support. via Adobe Spark<https://spark.adobe.com>
