Is jamovi accessible to the visually impaired?

Discuss the jamovi platform, possible improvements, etc.

Institutions of higher education, in the United States are beginning to ban, from teaching labs, software that is not certified to meet national accessibility standards. See https://www.section508.gov/sell/vpat And here's and example of one university's sotwre accessibility policy:https://accessibility.osu.edu/digital-accessibility-policy/minimum-digital-accessibility-standards/

Does jamovi meet these standards? If so, it will be easier for American institutions, and individual instructors at those institutions, to adopt and/or continue using jamovi.

Hi Jonathon,

Has there been any progress on this? I use Jamovi in my statistics classes instead of SPSS now but I may need to show my college soon that Jamovi is accessible (has a VPAT: https://www.section508.gov/sell/vpat) in order to continue doing so.

Thanks!
