Lectora Adds Tools for Review, Accessibility Compliance

Trivantis has released version X.6 of its Lectora e-learning software, a tool designed to allow users to easily create online courses and materials, such as Web sites or presentations. The new version adds tools for reviewing courses online and enhancements to accessibility compliance requirements.

ReviewLink Beta allows users to publish courses online for review and feedback from team members and subject experts. The new tool features e-mail notifications, the ability for reviewers to comment directly on the individual pages of published material, and managing and tracking of feedback on multiple courses. Authors and publishers can also re-publish updated materials, update feedback status, and send messages to reviewers.

The accessibility enhancements include a publishing option that prepares e-learning material to meet 508 compliance standards. There is also a new option that ensures all video controller buttons can be read by screen readers, checks all images and buttons for ALT tags, and disables the use of Web 2.0 windows.

Current Lectora users who are up to date on their maintenence will receive version X.6 at no charge.

Lectora requires Windows 7, Vista, XP, NT, or 2000 and an Intel or AMD processor.
