Janison CLS content templates and WCAG Standards

Mar 09 2017

WCAG Compliant video

Not enough is made of the WCAG features of the Janison CLS, and sure some of the responibilities for WCAG compliance is that of the authors but the CLS is one of the very few that is capable of meeting WCAG AA compliance out of the box.

In short however, the Janison CLS and content built within the system can be made to be A or AA compliant. It does require a bit of work, and some design choices. That being said we have a total solution and content that has passed a AA test. You can check it out at https://idis.ausport.gov.au. You must understand of course that AA compliance is not totally the responibility of the platform, if you're building courses it is 'you' that will have to put sub-titles on video's to make you page pass a AA test.

Anyway enough of that, the purpose of this article is to list the Janison CLS Templates, identify their 'Level' (how easy or hard they are to use, so level 1 are simple templates and level 4 harder to use) and the ability of the template to deploy content that can pass an A or AA test WCAG testing.

Examples of most of the panel templates can be found at https://learning.canopihr.com.au
