Test results for Basic Functionality
Test ID Name Description Result Notes
file-010 Operating system/Platform accessibility If you are using a hardware device, it can be started independently and essential accessibility for starting and exiting applications is available. Pass
file-110 The reading system can be activated independently If you are using a reading app that requires you to create an online account then the complete getting started process should be accessible. Pass
file-210 Open content Open the Fundamental Accessibility Test book in the reading system. Pass The online reader has a standard dialogue to browse to open a file you have locally.
file-310 Listing documents Check if you can navigate inside the bookshelf. Pass The online reader has titles to choose from.
nav-005 The table of contents in the app presents the content hierarchy Check if the table of Contents is accessible and its hierarchy is presented correctly by the reading system Pass Alt + C takes you to the table of contents at the location you are at in the book, which is very nice. The TOC has a tree view that can be expanded and collapsed.
nav-010 Navigate to chapters through the Table of Contents Check if you can navigate to a section by using the table of contents. Pass Colibrio has a screen reader setting, ALT + Z, which places you in a scroll view, much better for Assistive Technology. Also ALT + X escapes out of dialogues that may be a problem. The go to a heading from the TOC works fine.
nav-110 Navigate content by pages Check if you can navigate the content by pages. Pass ALT + P brings up a go to page dialogue, which works as expected.
nav-210 Navigate forward and backward through reflowed content Use any control or command to navigate forward and backwards in the book content. Pass Works as expected.
nav-310 Read navigation information Use the "Where am I?" or any other similar command available in the reading system and check if you can get information about your current position in the book. Pass ALT + W provides detailed information as to your location. Title of book, Percentage, page, and previous heading is provided.
nav-410 Perform a search, review the search results Perform a search, review the search results and navigate to the selected search result in the content. Pass Search seems to work well, and return to the search location link works fine.
nav-510 Move across chapters without using TOC Check if you can move across chapters without having to use the Table of Contents. Pass At the end of a chapter or file, there is a move to next and previous. This works well.
anno-010 Add a Bookmark or Highlight Some reading systems may have a Highlight feature in place of Bookmarks. The tests for Bookmarks may then be performed with Highlights. Pass ALT + B to insert a bookmark, and ALT + Shift + B to go to the list of bookmarks and select the list item to go to it.
anno-110 Review and navigate Bookmarks or Highlights Check if you can review and navigate Bookmarks or Highlights. Pass
anno-210 Add a note Add a Note at this location in the book. Provide a few lines of text in the Note. Pass In the highlight dialog, there is an edit button. Once activated, you can leave a comment. The comments are not visable when viewing the highlights, which is a recommendation for future development. I think the comments arelike notes, and am marking this as pass.
anno-310 Review and navigate Notes Check if you can review and navigate Notes. Pass You must edit the highlight to see the comments.

reading-010 Initiate "read from here" Focus on the beginning of a paragraph or a sentence and initiate reading. Reading should continue until interrupted by the user or at the end of the current document, e.g. current chapter. The text being read should preferably remain in view, but this is not a requirement to pass the test. Pass Works as expected.

reading-210 All text should be read in the proper order Sample text has been provided to test the reading order. The Paragraph 2 should be read after Paragraph 1. Note that visually Paragraph 2 is placed to the left of Paragraph 1 but it is second in the reading order. Pass Works correctly.
reading-310 Image alternate text reading Ensure that the alternate text for the image is available. Pass The ALT text is read, and it can be navigated by character and word.
reading-410 Change reading speed It should be possible to adjust (increase/decrease) the speed of reading. This test should be performed using the Assistive Technology being used for accessibility evaluation. Pass
reading-510 TTS allows pause for headings, paragraphs, list items, etc The user should be able to identify the difference between content items such as headings, paragraphs or list items by sufficient pauses in the TTS reading or appropriate formatting in the Braille device. Pass The normal HTML reading is available. Headings, list items, etc are identified by NVDA.

reading-1310 Select and copy text Reading systems should provide the ability to copy pieces of text that could be used for notes, in quotations, or to facilitate searching terms contained in the book. In some cases, this could be achieved using an AT such as a screen reader, for instance with a dedicated cursor or other procedures. Pass

mathml-010 Navigating block MathML with assistive technology and other technologies The test checks if block MathML works with assistive technology and related technologies. Pass Works fine.
mathml-020 Navigating inline MathML with assistive technology and other technologies The test checks if inline MathML works with assistive technology and related technologies. Pass Works fine.
