Blackboard Ally for Websites Make all Public Facing Website Digital Content More Accessible
Dr. Lisa Andion, Solutions Engineer, Blackboard Inc
Your website draws visitors from all over the internet. How do you ensure you are maximizing the digital experience for everyone? With first impressions being as important as ever, the quality and usability of your design plays a key part in making sure a visitor stays on your site. Creating more accessible content can help improve that experience.
Ally for Websites provides the following:
• Automatically check content for accessibility issues against our accessibility checklist based on key areas of the WCAG 2.0 A.A. standard.
• Provides alternative accessible formats for everyone, regardless of their accessibility needs.
• Gentle feedback around the accessibility of the online content to provide useful guidance and recommendations essential to creating an inclusive environment.
• Insight through institutional reporting to help understand how your institution is doing and where potential problem areas exist.
At this session, Blackboard will demonstrate the latest available capabilities of the ALLY for Websites.
