How to Use Accessibility Tools in Studies Weekly Online

Students and teachers have access to accessibility tools inside Studies Weekly Online through accessiBe. Teachers can enable accessibility features for themselves in their Account Settings of the Profile Menu. For students, teachers can enable the feature on an individual basis.

 

As a shortcut, Accessibility adjustments can also be opened and closed by pressing Alt-9 on PC or Option-9 on Mac.

To enable accessibility tools for a student from your Studies Weekly Online account and within the desired Classroom Card:

  1. Click the People tab.
  2. Next to the student's name, you can toggle the accessibility features on or off.

Once you enable accessibility tools for the student, they will see the Accessibility option in the sidebar.

Students may need some help knowing which accessibility tools to use. We recommend that teachers log in as the student (under the classroom’s People tab) to turn on the accessibility features for that student.

Teachers will see several accessibility tools and features to choose from, including Accessibility Adjustments, Content Adjustments, Color Adjustments, and Orientation Adjustments. 

Teachers can adjust their own account’s accessibility features by clicking the Accessibility button in the upper right corner of the screen.

 Note

In the event a teacher accidentally leaves their device in Read Mode, the screen will appear white with text only. To turn off Read Mode select the Accessibility button then scroll down and click the Read Mode button. The screen will revert back as soon as it is selected.
