New Accessibility Tools Available for Cast Your Vote

JANUARY 10, 2020

The new, fully reimagined Cast Your Vote game is live and ready for you and your students to play! We're also excited to share that this new game offers tools for students with visual or mobile impairments. We have integrated the following two features:

  • Keyboard navigation mode: This tool allows players to complete a play-through and navigate between each interact-able element of the screen through use of the keyboard alone.
  • Screen reader: A text-to-speech engine where the name and purpose of each selected element on the screen is spoken as well as the content/text associated with that element. This supplements the game’s existing use of sound effects and voiceover.

You can access these tools via the dropdown menu in the top left corner of the game screen. Play the new version of the game today and test the new tools!
