If our course content is not accessible, we are excluding a large population of ARC students from learning. In this session, you will learn how to use the Accessibility Checker in Canvas for identifying and fixing accessibility issues on Canvas Pages, and the Accessibility Checker in Word and PowerPoint to highlight accessibility issues and fix them. We will also give you a quick tour of our new Google Docs accessibility tool, Grackle. Finally, you will learn some tips on how to use Ally to identify issues in images and files attached to Canvas.

Please note:

  • Attendance is limited to employees of American River College and invited participants.
  • This is not a Hands-On session
