Hello all,

I am looking for ideas, suggestions and solutions for making maps accessible online.


The instructor is teaching a fully online geography class. He has map quizzes in each module. The student must look at a state map with no identifying information except the outlines of all of the counties and identify the highlighted county. I've got it nailed down on color contrast/texture for the highlighted counties, but what about making this assessment accessible to a student who is blind?

There is not a student in need at the moment, I'm just curious to see what others have done or what your ideas or suggestions would be for this type of assessment.

Warm Regards,
