Does Canvas work with Dragon Naturally Speaking? or any speech recognition software? I know a couple of years ago it didn't and I am wondering what the current state is.

The LaTeX is rendered as an inaccessible image. These departments are refusing to use Canvas because of this.   I wondered if anybody else has similar issues and, if so, would they join… (Show more)

Hi everyone,   I've had Ally installed in my instance of Canvas for about one year but only recently enabled it for all courses. Last week I noticed that it had been mysteriously disabled. Which lead me to the realization that all low-level subaccount administrators have access to the main Ally Configuration. My school has about 150 subaccounts… (Show more)
