Accessible Course Design in Canvas

用草图创建.

格式化 & 写作

  • Use headings in appropriate, nested order. 在画布上, 页面标题为H1, so the first heading on a page should be H2, H3嵌套在下面, 等.
  • URLs must be embedded as unique, descriptive links (Remote Learning 和 Technology 资源)而不是http://i.registeridnplay.com/programs/distance-learning/remote-learning-technology-resources/ or “click here for Technology 资源”).
  • Use HTML-coded bulleted or numbered lists (by clicking on the appropriate button in the Rich Text Editor), rather than typing out numbers or symbols for lists.
  • Designate header cells 和 header cell scope in 表. Tables should have captions 和 titles. All information can be added via the Tables menu in the Rich Text Editor.
  • Use white space 和 headings to break up long blocks of text.
  • Pages should have unique 和 descriptive titles (Module 2 Quiz: U.S. 宪法和. 测试2).
  • Write out dates 和 use full stops at the end of sentences (including bullet points).

图片

  • All images (except decorative images, like icons or stock photos) should have quality alt文本 descriptions.
  • Alt text descriptions should convey the information of the image, not merely describe the image. Alt text should be an equivalent substitute for the image.
  • Alt text should consider the context in which the image appears.
  • Complex images like graphs, charts, diagrams, 和 maps, must also have alt文本 descriptions. Lengthy descriptions of complex images can be linked to on a separate Canvas page.
  • Avoid using images of text as much as possible. If unavoidable, alt文本 must contain all text in the image.

Color & 对比

  • Color should not be the sole means of conveying information. Use texture, pattern, size, shape, 等. 与色彩结合.
  • Use colorblind filters (available in Adobe products 和 via sites like COBLIS) to test color combinations for colorblind perception.
  • Ensure a high contrast ratio between background 和 foreground colors. 使用以下工具进行测试 WebAIM’s Color 对比 Checker.

Audio & Video

  • All audio content (pure audio recordings 和 audio tracks on video recordings) must have a complete text equivalent in the form of transcripts (audio) or captions (video).
  • Auto-generated captions are only 60-70% accurate 和 cannot be used on their own; they must be corrected to full accuracy to be acceptable.
  • Ad-hoc recordings (announcements, discussion replies, 等.) should come with a text equivalent that conveys the same information.

访问文件

  • Word Documents: create in latest available version of Microsoft Word 和 run 可访问性检查器. Correct all highlighted issues.
  • PDFs: create in latest available version of Microsoft Word 和 run 可访问性检查器. 纠正所有问题. Convert to PDF using Adobe plugin. 使用adobeacrobatprodc, run 可访问性检查器 和 correct all issues: 阅读顺序, alt文本, 表, 语言, title, 等. 必须有OCR (optical character recognition)—a scanned book will read as an image 和 cannot be processed by a screen reader.
  • Excel Spreadsheets: Avoid blank cells as much as possible. Use for intended purpose—organizing data. Do not include lengthy sentences, images, 等.
  • PowerPoint Presentations: Use notes section to describe content of slides. Notes should serve as equivalent to the information on the slides. 图片 should have alt文本 descriptions. 确保 阅读顺序 幻灯片上的项目是正确的.

课程资源

  • Text Format: digital formats are always preferable, as they can easily be read aloud by a screen reader or other text to speech software. 必须有OCR.
