Accessible courses help students learn.
And we have a variety of tools to help you meet accessibility standards in Canvas.
When using videos in your Canvas course from online sources, choose videos with accurate closed captioning. If you create your own videos, there are multiple options to add closed captioning.
- YuJa auto-captioning (good, but not 100% accurate, need to self-correct)
- YouTube auto-captioning (not 100% accurate, need to self-correct)
- Type the video transcript and add it to the Canvas page below your video
When creating content in Canvas Pages and Assignments using the Rich Content Editor, you can use the built-in accessibility checker to identify ways to improve accessibility.
Documents and Images in Canvas
When uploading documents into Canvas, a software called Blackboard Ally will automatically rate your document to determine how well it meets accessibility standards.
Learn more about improving accessibility using Ally with our Blackboard Ally Training.
