Accessibility Features in Science4Us

At ExploreLearning, we believe all students can have success in math and science – and have fun along the way! This commitment inspires us to work continuously toward enhancing the accessibility of our products to serve the needs of learners with disabilities.

We passionately support the ultimate goal of making all products as accessible as possible and look forward to sharing more information as additional accessibility enhancements and/or new features are implemented.

What are some accessibility features in Science4Us?

Presentation Features:

  • Science4Us lesson and game content is designed for pre- to emerging readers, therefore, much of the content is delivered through images. The text that is included is read-aloud for students in most scenarios. The non-text content in the Evaluation is available in a text-only multiple-choice version.

  • Printable text is available for all songs, stories, and poems.

  • Science4Us games do not rely on the use of color to navigate games.

  • Navigation is simple, where individual lessons and games are linear in nature. Teachers control the sequence of assignments given to students.

  • Audio controls to play, pause. and rewind content are available in the Science4Us Explain lessons. Audio directions can be repeated in games using the 'ear icon.'

  • Keyboard input is available in various Science4Us games, e.g. Notebook, and many Elaborate lessons. Other games do require mouse input.

  • Timing of responses is not required in Science4Us.

  • Alt text is provided for images.

  • Colors contrast with the adjacent background color that exceed the required contrast ratios.

  • The majority of activities are inclusive of labels and instructions; however, there are activities where students are interacting with animated content and written instructions may not be provided.

  • When specific inputs are required, students will be guided. If the input is incorrect, students will receive helpful feedback.

  • Most text formatting can be resized. However, some videos include embedded text captions.

  • Text-to-speech is available on the student’s dashboard. Elsewhere, text can be selected and used with text-to-speech tools.

● Notetaking tools are available for students to write ideas using a variety of charts and graphs as they process curriculum content.
