Accessibility is a journey, not a destination - and no matter where an institution is on this path, it needs a partner that helps it to build more equitable learning environments for everyone and to meet personalized and different ways of learning. When having cutting-edge technology and time-saving automated tools focused on improving inclusive design, institutions are aware of accessibility issues, keep up with the rapidly changing accessibility requirements and mitigate the accessibility barriers.

Anthology Ally is a revolutionary solution that enables institutions to create truly inclusive experiences in education by making digital course content more accessible for all learners. Ally integrates closely with the Learning Management System (LMS) and the existing workflows to automatically check for common accessibility and usability issues on the WCAG 2.1 AA standard. By addressing the broadest range of digital materials of the LMS, it helps institutions reaching their main objectives and goals for accessibility and inclusion.
