Does Canvas support image recognition for the visually impaired?
Carrie Finke - I'm going to share this with the Accessibility group, which would probably be a good group for you to join yourself, given that I see you are involved with eLearning. But if by "support" you mean <ALT> tags that a screen reader program would read the answer is yes, as indicated on this document: General Accessibility Design Guidelines . That said, let's face it: the average faculty member is never going to dive in and change their own <alt> tag, though at least Canvas (as that document mentions), uses the image name as the default unless it is changed later. You may also want to check out the article that is linked to in the Guidelines here: How do I embed images from the web in the Rich Content Editor?
I'm not sure if this is what you had in mind or not, but in case it's not--that's where the Accessibility group may help!
