[Athen] accessibility of survey software

In my past experience looking at Qualtrics has a separate, but unequal model for supporting accessibility.

They have parallel version of the survey only for screen reader users, which uses a hidden link, and only SOME of their questions question types have accessible alternatives. Poor keyboard support and focus styling, the last time I checked a few years ago.

Unless something has changed recently, I would avoid Qualtrics

Hello All:

I know that SurveyGizmo has a number of tools to promote accessibility, including a warning when a question format is inaccessible.

Does anyone know how Qualtrics compares. Is it generally accessible. How does it compare to SurveyGizmo (if you've used both)?
