Ensuring your content complies with accessibility guidelines on your own is hard, which is why the Canvas RCE has the Accessibility Checker built right in! Click the link below to take a short survey and help us make accessibility in Canvas even better.

Canvas Accessibility Checker Survey (the survey is now closed. Thanks to everyone who participated!)

Note: The survey will ask for permission to record you interacting with mock ups. This is optional! You can still take the entire survey even if you decline recording.

Regarding alt text in the accessibility checker, it states "Image alt length: Alt attribute text should contain fewer than 120 characters."

This is an out-of-date guideline. W3C/WCAG 2.0 guidelines do not reference a 120 character limit for alt text. Please remove this as a criteria. Or lengthen it at the very least.

Some of the examples of good alt text in the second link are much longer than 120 characters.
