Spring 2019: Ally accessibility tool

December 3, 2018

In Spring 2019, the Ally accessibility checker will be enabled in all bCourses sites (https://www.ets.berkeley.edu/ally-tool-within-bcourses). Ally integrates seamlessly with bCourses to offer instructors a course-wide picture of the accessibility of their online course content while also providing students with downloadable alternative formats.

When Ally is enabled, instructors will see a dial indicator next to their Canvas files indicating whether they can be accessed by individuals using assistive technologies. Please note that these colored dials are visible only to instructors, and not students.
