NBC Learn Is 508 Accessible!


NBC Learn is committed to making our site and all of its content fully accessible for users with disabilities. We teamed up with the accessibility experts at Interactive Accessibility to guide us in meeting the Section 508 requirements as well as WCAG 2.0. Our goal is to ensure that our improvements will allow users with motor, vision, or hearing disabilities to continually have the same wonderful experience exploring our archives as all users. NBC Learn is now certified and has completed its VPAT® (Voluntary Product Accessibility Template). To learn more, visit the official sites for Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act and W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. We hope that you will enjoy the new and exciting changes we have made. NBC Learn is committed to accessibility as an ongoing activity so we look forward to your feedback!

Keyboard Access

Navigate with the Touch of a Key

Significant changes have been made so that users without fine motor control or the ability to execute simultaneous actions may browse the latest collections and view the newest NBC Learn content with ease. We have enabled seamless keyboard navigation throughout our pages and within our Cue Card.

Visual Improvements

See Content Clearer than Before

Improving accessibility for users with low vision or hearing impairments is critical as one of NBC Learn's major goals is to deliver the most relevant videos, images and documents on a daily basis. We want to ensure that users can view our content with ease because everyone should have the great experience using NBC Learn.

Assistive Technologies

Screen Reader Support

We are proud to announce that NBC Learn and the NBC Learn Cue Card are now fully compatible with the JAWS© Screen Reader for Windows. These changes in conjunction with screen reader technologies assist users who are blind or low-vision to explore everything that NBC Learn has to offer.

Support for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Get the Story Behind the Video

Whether you are accessing a video on the latest news or an NBC Learn original series, an integral part to understanding the story is the written content behind each video. We have equipped our Cue Card with features such as closed captioning and full video transcripts to enrich the experience of deaf NBC Learn users.




We hope that these features and improvements make NBC Learn even more useful for you! We're always eager to hear your feedback, so please let us know what you think!
