What does Ally do?
Generates alternative formats for students to download
Ally uses original documents to create alternative formats that are made available to students. The best part is that you don't have to do anything!
Provides accessibility scores
Ally measures the accessibility of some files uploaded into Blackboard and provides a score from Low to Perfect based on how accessible the content is.
- Low: File is not accessible and needs immediate attention.
- Medium: File is somewhat accessible and could use improvement.
- High: File is accessible but could be improved.
- Perfect: File is accessible. No improvement needed.
Gives instructor feedback on how to improve accessibility scores
Ally provides you detailed feedback and support to help you become an accessibility pro. Learn about accessibility issues, why they matter, and how to fix them. Green is the goal!
