Accessibility Checker for Your Survey

Qualtrics has a tool that checks to see if your survey is accessible (508 Compliant); being accessible means that people using various assistive devices and not necessarily a standard web browser can still participate in your survey. The accessibility checker tool will scan your survey, highlight issues it finds, and suggest the corrections you can make to resolve them. When creating a survey, it is suggested that you always use this tool to make your survey as accessible as possible.
