    Alt Text Decorative Images Option in Rich Content Editor - For accessibility, instructors/developers should be able to check a checkbox so that Canvas automatically adds the double quotation marks as the ALT TEXT for a "decorative image." This option would allow for images that are not essential to students using screen reading software.  This will help to make Canvas more compliant with UDL/accessibility requirements.
