Hi Accessibility Community!

I wanted to cross-post a blog article that Instructure posted this morning about Accessibility: https://www.instructure.com/canvas/blog/accessibility-cornerstone-equity-education

It mentions a milestone that we’re proud of reaching: formal certification of WCAG 2.1 AA substantial conformance by our third party reviewers at WebAIM. For more information you can review the certification statement and an updated VPAT. Over 100 accessibility improvements have been made this year to support this work (not including dozens more that are part of other projects) by all of the engineering teams across Instructure.

Thank you for your engagement and support as we work together to meet the accessibility needs of our students and educators! We appreciate the feedback and energy you bring to help us identify improvements and design solutions.
