Release notes 99

The release is expected on March 14 2023.

Learners - Keyboard accessibility (WCAG)

  • Improved: The aNewSpring platform allows learners to interact and navigate through the learning environments by only using their keyboard.

    • This includes the ability to see which actionable item is on focus at the moment.

    • The changes are so far applied to the following places:

      • The login pages, including the access code input and resetting password.

      • The homepage, including the Competency tab and modal, and the Bundle modal.

  • Changed: Additionally, clicking on text-fields will also show a clear border to indicate it’s on focus. This way learners can see clearly that they can start typing.

Learners - Matching question

  • Improved: Learners can expand or collapse a card in the matching question when it contains a lot of text.

Learners - Reset password

  • Improved: The information at the ‘Forgot password?’ flow has been updated with better explanations.
