<span>One of the requirements of the BigBlueButton project is for it accessible to all users without limitation, which encompasses both direct access (native to the application) and indirect access (compatible with assistive technologies such as screen readers) methods. Accessibility has already been fully implemented in the Flash client and is in development in the HTML5 client. The main accessibility features that were implemented include screen reader support, keyboard navigation, and localization. Since a large portion of the users of this application are students, the content and interface of the application is required to be equally functional for individuals with physical impairments and disabilities. All accessibility features have been implemented in compliance with the [https://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-1.1/ ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applciations) standards] and [https://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/ WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines)].
In regards to screen reader implementation, all text within the application and anything that the user can interact with has a description which is interpreted by the screen reader and read out to the user to give meaning to the things they cannot see.
