Enhance Accessibility with Unstoppable

The business world is beginning to understand the importance of being accessible. The COVID-19 outbreak has forced most of us to re-evaluate our IT infrastructure and its importance it is to our organization. While private organizations are working fast to create an accessible IT infrastructure, government organizations are increasingly expected to abide by digital accessibility standards; e.g. US federal (Section 508) or EU accessibility (WCAG 2.1) requirements. Addteq’s Unstoppable app enhances accessibility to Atlassian’s Jira, Jira Service Desk, and Confluence products. Making it easier for users to read with the latest screen reader software. It also provides 508 compliance with WCAG 2.1 standards.  Unstoppable is compatible with JAWS and NVDA screen readers and can be used with Chrome and Firefox browsers. 

Auto Enable Accessibility

A major challenge for any organization is being able to identify all of the users that need access to accessible software. Unstoppable is able to auto-detect a user that is using a screen-reader software and auto-enables the accessibility options, without the need to contact the administrator or manager. This helps users to overcome the initial hesitation of asking for support, and may potentially overcome a legal requirement. The video below demonstrates Unstoppable identifying a visually impaired user and prompting them to enable accessibility features.

Navigate better

Jira, Jira Service Desk, and Confluence are full of links that a visual user can navigate easily. However, all these links are not always properly read by screen readers. Most of the time, the issues are that the links may have some missing ARIA tags or labels. Unstoppable has the ability to add the missing ARIA tags and labels to Atlassian’s front end, to ensure seamless user experience. Below is a video showcasing the navigation on a Jira ticket while using Unstoppable and NVDA screen reader. 

Cover your corner cases

Unstoppable solves some of the minor issues visually impaired users face.  Some of those issues may include creating a page from a template in Confluence, or adding a list of components in a Jira ticket. Although these issues seem small, a non-visual user may find it extremely frustrating. With Unstoppable these minor issues are resolved and allows the user a seamless experience. 

Unstoppable ranks the Jira tickets in the backlog view as a text, so the screen reader can read it easily to the user.
