For accessibility, we want to make the surveys as easy as possible to answer. Keeping the surveys simple should be the primary goal. To achive this, certain question types like drag and drop, image hotspot or heatmap, and complex questions like flex matrix, etc. aren't supported.Settings like auto-advance and auto-submit along with tools like exit survey button are disabled on 508 compliant or accessible surveys to ease navigation through the survey.

Once accessible theme is enabled for a survey, we display accessibility icon on all question types that are accessibility compliant. This makes it very easy to identify question types that support accessibility when adding questions.Go to: Surveys (Select Survey) » Edit » Add Question.
We recommend minimizing the use of images on surveys however, when required, images can be used along with alt-text for images. alt-text is required for images so screen-readers can read and explain what the image is about.
Guidelines for alt-text:
For all image supported questions, you will see the accessibility icon next to the image, click on the icon to update alt-text for these images.If an image is added using our rich text editor, you can right click on the image and add alt-text.
