In adherence with the CSU's Accessible Technology Initiative and CSUSM's commitment to accessibility, Qualtrics has been modified to prevent survey builders from creating inaccessible surveys. To ensure that every survey created at CSUSM is accessible to individuals using screen readers and other assistive technology, CSUSM only enables certain question types in Qualtrics.
Qualtrics has known accessibility issues for users who use assistive technology, such as a screen reader. Learn about the limitations of Qualtrics for assistive technology users.
* = While the File Upload question is an allowed question type, it may have accessibility issues for some mobility and vision impaired users. Survey creators may want to consider structuring their survey differently to avoid requiring a user to upload a file.
Every time you create a new survey in Qualtrics, you should check to make sure it is fully accessible. The best way is to run the Qualtrics Accessibility Checker
*Note: If you plan to use Survey Logic, you should add a disclaimer to the top of your survey that says: “Due to the use of survey logic, question numbers may not follow sequentially as you proceed through the survey.” This will help ensure that screen reader users do not believe that they have skipped a question accidentally.
