New data from Ally, Blackboard’s new accessibility tool, is providing insight into text accessibility at the user level. As reported recently at Inside Higher Ed website, findings show that a lot of work remains to be done to progress toward the goal of universal accessibility:
“…new data from Blackboard show that the most common types of course content that students use on a daily basis — images, PDFs, presentations and other documents — continue to be riddled with accessibility issues. And while colleges have made some slight improvements over the last five years, the issues are widespread.”
The SDRC encourages faculty and staff to help bridge the gap as Florida State works toward universal accessibility in all areas for students. Please explore the references we have available here (links below) or contact us directly at email@example.com with questions.
