The assessment is most suitable for those with normal or near-normal sight. That means you can comfortably read size 12 font in daylight, from a screen that’s about 0.7m away.
Unfortunately, there are some visual impairments we’re currently unable to accomodate in the assessment. These include:
- Diplopia (double-vision)
- Blepharospasm (involuntary blinking)
- Visual fatigue
- Muscular degeneration
- Full or partial blindness
Depending on severity, candidates with these conditions may struggle to complete the assessment. If you have one of these visual impairments, we’d recommend reaching out to us, or the employer you’re applying to, so we can decide the best course of action together.
Other visual impairments will depend on the severity. For example, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa, cataracts and other conditions may restrict your peripheral vision, and/or cause so-called ‘blind spots’ that will make it harder for you to complete the assessment. The ideal assessment experience will depend on whether you can see the whole screen, without obstruction. If you’re unsure, just refer to the guidance in your invitation email on reasonable adjustment.
That said, the assessment is completely accessible for those with colour blindness. If you’re colour blind, you’ll still have the same chance as everybody else, with no adjustments needed.
