Ally for Accessibility

Blackboard Ally making course content accessibleBlackboard Ally works to gauge the accessibility of your course content and provide instructors and designers with guidance and tips for lasting improvements.

  • Receive feedback on the accessibility of your content.
  • Improve content accessibility with step-by-step instructions.

In addition to providing you with insight to your content’s accessibility, Ally automatically creates alternative versions of your files. This allows students to choose the type of file that suits their needs. While you are in the process of improving your files, students can still get accessible-friendly copies.
