    Has anyone developed a virtual tour that includes certain components that allow people with certain disabilities to access all of the content? Some examples would include:

    1. Operate with keyboard only, including zooming in and out, opening hotspots, and browsing carousels. (Most tours you can explore easily with the keyboard)
    2. Accommodate a “screen reader”: If you open a hotspot and text appears, the screen reader will read it aloud.
    3. Offer alternative text: When an image is opened, text in the image’s metadata will be read aloud that describe the image.

    In the United States, there is a federal code known as “508”, so being “508 compliant, especially on government websites, is crucial.

    Adam, I too am seeking information on accessible panoramas. Prominently featured on our website is a panorama depicting a special education classroom, yet we’re faced with having to remove it due to accessibility issues. As mandated by California law, we must provide a comparable experience to users with disabilities, but I haven’t been able to uncover much information on this topic. If you have, I’d love to hear what you’ve discovered.
