During the past week, I was given a new task to focus on – creating a script to automate the find and replace process that I’ll need to do in order to replace all the pesky instances of a font in our materials with variables.
The nice visual indicators of what you’re supposed to do with the mouse, or what key you’re supposed to press, are actually glyphs in a font called Edufont. It makes typing materials much quicker and gives participants an eye catching prompt for what they should be doing, but it’s not very accessible. For example, to type up “click a specific thing on the screen”, click would be replaced by the keyboard combination Alt+0153 – which results in ™. When a screen reader goes through the materials… I think you get the picture. Trademark a specific thing on the screen makes very little sense.
