At Khan Academy we care a great deal about accessibility. Our goal is to help ensure that learners with varying abilities and needs are able to access our materials.
As assistive technologies change and evolve, we strive to keep our site up to date with the most popular technologies on the browsers we support.
We conduct regular accessibility reviews and use our findings to improve our software. We have modified images to include alt text, improved our modals to enable keyboard navigation and better screen reader compatibility, adjusted color contrast to meet the WCAG contrast ratio standards, and updated icon designs that previously relied purely on color to indicate status change.
- For learners with low vision or colorblindness—Khan Academy has developed its own tool for checking accessibility. Since its introduction, the number of help requests concerning accessibility issues for those with low vision or colorblindness has been in steady decline.
- For learners who are deaf or hard of hearing—Transcripts and subtitles are available shortly after video publishing.
- For learners with sensitivity to animations—Khan Academy has a reduce-motion feature. Logged-in users can choose this feature via Settings>Accessibility>Reduce motion and animations.
