Considering what to do to make Rich Text Editor less intrusive for people who use screen reader / keyboard nav, related to
From Illinois State University: Here is the 3 options (ideas) that we discussed with Longsight:
  1. Option 1
    Can the CKEditor default to text box ( similar to what you see in Test and Quizzes) with a hyper link above the text box that links to the current ckeditor configuration ?"
    Our functional group, thinks that maybe if this is possible to do through Reggienet with limited coding, then this might be the simplest option to make it easier for screen reader user, where they simply would enter in a blank text box their wording and a visual user who wants more detail can click on the hyper link then could see the full ckeditor options.
  2. 2nd option
    Instead of seeing the Ckeditor...can it be replaced by a combo box with two options in it (Option A - Basic Ckeditor and Option B - Advance editor)
    The Basic Ckeditor would be used by screen reader and be very basic, Advance editor would our new custom editor with a lot of tools in it.
    The functional group thought if this is possible then a user regardless if they are a screen reader or visual could both go in to same combo and select the type of editor.
  3. Option 3
    Display both an open text box with an Advance Ckeditor below it, and a user could use either the text box or editor to enter their text.
  4. Option 4?
    Make sure we talk about the Editor in the Tutorial?
