Ally, Your Accessibility Ally
Creating accessible course content is a necessary step towards building courses that support the learning needs of all students—a major focus of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Blackboard Ally can make the process of creating accessible course content more seamless.
What does Ally do?
- Ally automatically provides an accessibility score for uploaded content (image, PDFs, Word Docs, PowerPoint, OpenOffice, HTML etc.) and offers tips on improving the content’s accessibility score. (Note: Students cannot view the accessibility scores.)
- Ally also automatically generates alternative formats such as audio, electronic braille, and ePub. Better alternative formats are produced for content with higher accessibility scores.
