One Search is the JCU instance of Proquest's Summon. The Summon 2.0 interface provides mechanisms that can make Summon more effective for visually impaired users. The following lists the aspects of Summon that support accessibility compliance and users of screen reader technology. Summon 2.0 is fully compliant with USA Legislation WCAG 2.0 and USA's Section 508.
Summon users with screen-reader technology are able to utilize navigational elements at the top of the page known as “skip navigation” to allow the focus of the page to go directly to the search results avoiding the navigation, search box and filters elements.
There is nothing that a library needs to configure; it is available for all users but is only visible to screen readers. This link is available on both the Summon search page and the Summon results page.
ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) alerts exist to announce to a screen reader when events on the screen happen that do not include a page reload. For example, events being activated such as the right-side Topic pane and the Saved Items folder.
Summon 2.0 also provides HTML <label> tags defining input elements such as the keyword search box, the date slider, and Advanced Search.
A user can navigate through Summon by using a keyboard:
