September was a really fruitful month for us when it comes to bettering Stripo and its ecosystem within the type of numerous supporting instruments. As well as, this month, we began working in the direction of an necessary facet of electronic mail advertising and marketing — accessibility.
So, let’s go into just a little extra element about all of the achievements.
Interactive module generator has three extra video games now
After we launched our interactive module generator in July, we mentioned that we had large plans to replace it and it is best to anticipate new video games. As we promised, in September, we launched three new video games that may be generated by the handy interface of our generator.
- Scratch sport. On this sport, you may create a secret message or give the recipient a promo code, which they need to reveal by the scratching shade coating like in lottery tickets.
- Image quiz sport. Give your subscribers a riddle, and the reply shall be within the assembled puzzle.
- Wheel of fortune. Give away promo codes and prizes or create video games utilizing the wheel of fortune. Let recipients check their luck by spinning the wheel and seeing what it reveals.
For instance, that is what the completed image quiz sport seems like.
You’ll be able to generate all these video games in an intuitive interface, and also you don’t want coding information to create and implement them in your electronic mail. We will not wait to see what emails you may construct utilizing these ready-made sport mechanics.
Two-factor authentication is now reside in Stripo
First, let’s take a look at what this two-factor authentication is and why it’s wanted. Two-factor authentication (or 2FA) is an extra safety measure used to confirm the identification of people trying to entry a web based account. After getting into their username and password, customers are requested for further info earlier than being granted entry.
Now, in Stripo you will have the choice to activate 2FA or Multi-Issue Authentication (MFA) to reinforce the safety of your account. This helps shield your account from numerous safety dangers, together with phishing, brute-force assaults, credential abuse, and comparable threats based mostly on person passwords and accounts.
Now you can select to authenticate by devoted two-factor authentication apps equivalent to Google Authenticator, Authy, or Duo. As well as, double authentication might be carried out by a one-time code, which we are going to ship to you by electronic mail.
First steps in bettering electronic mail accessibility inside Stripo
This yr, the Electronic mail Markup Consortium launched an Accessibility Report, which revealed some horrible information: 99.97% of HTML emails examined comprise accessibility points categorized as “Critical” or “Vital.” In consequence, now we have the truth that solely 0.03% of emails are totally accessible.
What does this imply? Virtually all emails that find yourself in inboxes are poorly or fully unreadable for display screen readers. Folks with visible impairments merely can’t discover out what’s in these emails since display screen readers can’t learn the e-mail out loud for them.
In the mean time, Stripo is approaching 1 million lively customers, and it is a big variety of emails created by our editor. We need to enhance these horrible statistics on our personal in order that any display screen reader can learn all emails created in Stripo with out issues.
Proper now, our programmers are transforming and bettering the emails code rolled out of the editor in order that there are not any errors on the code stage that might intervene with display screen readers.
As well as, the product staff is engaged on “Accessibility precheck” performance. The primary concept is that Stripo will verify emails for compliance with accessibility requirements (electronic mail code, shade distinction, and so on.). We’ll point out which electronic mail parts scale back accessibility and suggest how finest to repair them utilizing our electronic mail preview characteristic.
The code replace shall be launched within the coming weeks, whereas the “Accessibility precheck” shall be launched later.
