CDLI Accessibility Guides

Canvas Course Templates

Accessibility Updates: Beginning in November 2021, CDLI's Canvas Course templates have been updated to better meet web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG) level AA. Some of the changes made to the templates include:

  • Added a caption, code updates, and adjusted color and contrast levels to make the home page table more accessible
  • Other than navigational portal on the home page, all single cell tables removed and replaced with horizontal divider lines and headings
  • Ensured all images have an appropriate "alt" description or are marked as decorative
  • Adjusted heading levels to ensure proper nesting of headings
  • Removed all-caps titles

Canvas Accessibility Checker

The Canvas Rich Content Editor (RCE) is equipped with an accessibility checker which will alert you to accessibility issues on your page. Find out more about the Canvas Accessibility Checker.
