Accessibility Testing Results

Prezi is an inaccessible service being designed to be used in Adobe Flash Player. It is unfortunates that keyboard or switch access is not possible and most elements are not read aloud by a screenreader. However, Prezi does offer many personalisation options in terms of colours, fonts and background. It zooms easily and allows users to see an entire overview of a presentation which many be helpful. Text notes can be added as can audio and video.

2Image ALT Attributes Poor The images that appear on all the presentations do not appear accessible. There is no option to add alt attributes when uploading images.
3Link Target Definitions Good Links on the web pages about the product are good, but there are problematic link text on presentations, which do not make sense out of context.
