Major Accessibility Improvements

H5P has two primary focuses in everything we do: accessibility and user experience. Previously, it has been difficult to generate funding for these two focuses as organizations typically want to fund cool new features and content types. With the income we now generate from we are also able to fund the less spectacular, but certainly more important improvements. The H5P Core team has been working with two universities and spent several weeks improving the accessibility of H5P.

34 issues have been solved.

Code snippets

If you use H5P to teach programming you may now finally add both inline code and larger code snippets almost everywhere in H5P!

Here is an example:

Since code snippets will only confuse the majority of our users, this feature is disabled by default, but users may enable it in their user profiles. Self hosters may enable the feature following this tutorial. Some may want to add it for some of their specific users and others probably for everyone.

A big thanks to eCornell for sponsoring and contributing the code snippets feature.
