Open Accessibility Lab: • Faculty can drop by to improve the accessibility of your course content, design, files, and videos. No appointment necessary.

Using Ally Tool in Canvas:  Ally will be enabled in all Canvas courses this Summer 2019. Come learn about how Ally will increase the accessibility of Canvas content in your course.

Ally scans your course documents (Word, PPT, PDF, and image files) and automatically creates accessible versions in alternate formats such as:

    Tagged PDF: Structured PDF for improved use with assistive technology
    HTML: For viewing in the browser and on mobile devices
    ePub: For reading as an e-book on an iPad or other e-book reader
    Electronic Braille: BRF version for consumption on electronic braille displays
    Audio MP3: Audio file for listening

Ally also provides information to help instructors make their original course documents more accessible through an accessibility wizard and an accessibility score.
