There's currently a feature request to adjust that color, but it only has... Hello all - I'd like to know if/when the default blue color for links in Canvas will be addressed? As it stands now, the contrast is only at 2.48:1. Obviously the work around (changi... Where is the link to Canvas Accessibility Resources? Hi- In testing yesterday, I noticed that radio groups/multiple choice questions are missing an association with the question; they are not using a fieldset and legend, nor are they using appropriate aria group... 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. Here is a recent article that I came across about the University of North Florida's first deaf Nursing Student. Thought that some of you out there would be interested. UNF's First Deaf Nursing Student We deployed UDOIT about a month ago. It would be nice to gauge our current level of accessibility so that we can monitor our progress going forward. Has anyone used statistics from UDOIT to estimate the level o... I use several images repeatedly in my modules. Each time I use an image, I need to replace the default alt-text of the file name with a meaningful name. Over and over, I am re-typing the same alt-text for a given imag... Hi all. I recently was asked to review Perusall. Based on my examination, Perusall does not seem to be accessible to persons using a keyboard or screen reader to navigate. Since there are faculty at my institution cur... I have recently been made aware of how difficult it is for students using "assistive technology" determining whether or not they have already visited a specific link or tab. Craig Can anyone tell me (or show me) how DocViewer works with a screen reader when accessing annotations? When I ran UDOIT, the report summary indicated the following: "Insufficient text color contrast with background" in some areas. I'm unclear about what I need to do exactly to resolve that accessibility issue. Are there text to speech software compatible within canvas for the students that needed it. Also, the same question goes for a screen enlarger. I've been looking at the google LTI integration, focused on accessibility. Has anyone else looked at this? One of the initial things I've noticed is that the Google-specific keyboard command to bring up the keyboard s... The use of colors to enhance the reading of people with dyslexia is discussed in the scientific literature. Pairing white background with black fonts might not be the best combination when it comes... The following is a blog post version of a presentation I gave at Instructurcon 2017 titled, “Mission Possible: Accessible Course Materials." Video available below, additional resources available at the bottom.
... I want to know how accessible are the Canvas rubrics? Do they work with keyboard navigation or screen readers? Both when they are being viewed in the assignment view or through the gradebook? In talking about accessibility and campus, several of our faculty have asked about the equation editor in the RCE. From what I can tell, it encodes using LaTeX, which is (I think?) readable by screen readers. In searc... What is a bullet point list of categories and or examples of Accessibility? I have been in the rabbit warren of Canvas Guides, not to mention Google search, all day researching this topic. Yikes!
