Accessibility

Edsby is committed to meeting the needs of every student, teacher and parent, because learning happens best when everyone central to the education of a K-12 child is involved.

Our product has been engineered to embrace accessibility objectives that empower and engage individuals in their learning goals.

Created With Accessibility in Mind

We strive to ensure our products are accessible to all users, regardless of their abilities or platforms. We regularly analyze our adherence to the relevant WCAG 2.1 standards and ensure that Edsby is usable with a broad range of assistive technologies, including screen readers.

Responsive Design

Edsby is a modern, industry-standard HTML5 web application and requires no particular network, client, client operating system, or client plugin. It adapts to all screen sizes and resolutions, not only on desktop but also on mobile, tablet, gaming consoles and even TVs.

Edsby fully supports browser and OS magnification features that allow users to enlarge text as desired.

Students love the accessibility of Edsby and many of them use their mobile devices to track homework, upcoming events and extracurriculars. Parents are using it to track their child’s schedules.
