Posted in Commentary with tags on May 21, 2020 by itnerd

Terranova Security, a global leader in security awareness training, announced a new set of enhanced accessibility features across its entire library of security awareness training content.

To coincide with Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD), this release boasts an enriched learning experience that’s inclusive for all users, with plans to make content available in 40+ languages. These measures deliver on the Terranova Security commitment to ensure that everyone can have access to the knowledge they need to keep themselves, their organizations, and all sensitive information safe.

Major accessibility features in this release include:

  • Ongoing language support: Terranova Security is recognized for its very high-quality content, strong support for customers, the ability to customize content and for supporting the most languages of all vendors (both text and narration). The company has continued to deliver in this area, with a training library that includes modules, microlearning and nanolearning content, all of which will be available in over 40 different languages. This ongoing initiative represents the Terranova Security commitment to bring security awareness training to users in their preferred language.
  • WCAG 2.1 compliance: Terranova Security is level A and AA compliant with WCAG 2.1 standards for accessibility. The Terranova Security accessibility measures implemented all conform to the guidelines and success criteria in making training content universally perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust. Terranova Security achieved this high level of content accessibility by providing text alternatives for non-text content, synchronized multimedia alternatives, and interface usability improvements.
  • The same high-quality content users love: The Terranova Security accessibility measures have been made with interactivity in mind. All training material maintains a high standard for interactivity and engagement. This ensures that users always have access to the fun, informative security awareness training that remains Terranova Security’s hallmark.

A lot of online content still excludes many users every day. 80% of online content is available in only one of 10 languages: English, Chinese, Spanish, Japanese, Arabic, Portuguese, German, French, Russian, and Korean. Of those, less than half of the world’s population speaks one of those languages as their preferred language.

In terms of WCAG 2.1 compliance, GAAD research found that 98.1% of home pages have at least one failure, while the average website home page contains 60.9 accessibility errors.

The accessible versions of Terranova Security’s security awareness training course material are now available to new and existing customers.
