Accessibility Features: Staying Persistent with Learners


In coaching work, I've seen many learners resist or outright reject accessibility features that would make their lives easier, or provide more opportunity to access content. I have my own theories about why they do this.

  • Self conscious/stigma
  • Lack of desire or engagement
  • Fear of the unknown

As I coach teachers, I encourage them to be unflinching in their persistence that learners become comfortable in the use these tools based on their individual needs. After the pandemic, some teachers have resorted back to direct instruction, which takes locus away from learners, which may also impact learner willingness to engage with the tools. Spoken Content, Safari Reader, Dictation, Translate and so many other native tools could be game changers for many learners.

What strategies have you seen or used that successfully place the onus on learners to use these tools when needed?
