Playcanvas and screen readers?

Hey guys,

Before I dive too deep into the subject, do playcanvas have any support for screen readers?

Just wondering what amount of work could be needed to add that to a project Im’ working on.


Hi @memleak,

So, a Playcanvas application is a regular HTML webpage with the main element being a canvas element. A canvas is an array where all 2D/3D content is being rendered on, that being said this element can’t be usually parsed by most screen readers.

But you can use for your UI (text, buttons etc.) regular HTML/CSS on top of Playcanvas, that is supported quite ok. That part of your Playcanvas app will be parsed by any screen reader.

Thank you for the infos! Will look into it.
