Who can see your viewing activity?
CCC Accessibility Center
Thank you Michelle!
You're very welcome.
ESL students, students in a noisy place or library
When the instructor is an ESL
Good point about science as another language
I have an accent and I think it is helpful for students to read what I am saying
I remember talking about genes and a student though I was talking about jeans - until I wrote it on the board.
Canvas Studio is a time-saver
You may get to this later - Aren't there also considerations for students with visual impairments and videos? If there's text on screen/video that isn't being read out loud, some people may miss that content.
Just saw a video like that recently, so thought I'd ask
That is audio description. Important movements or visual information shown on the screen should be audio described so a person not seeing it gets the full context.
how to create the effective transcript
Images have 'Alt text' and 'description'. I always thought 'Alt text' was a short title, and details go into 'description'.
Not all assistive technology will recognize long description. But if you put both you will confuse some assistive tech
Really good to know. Thank you!
The alt text length is limited by the agility of screen readers and not by how many characters a product will allow.
Ooh, that just reminded me of something. If the image doubles as a hyperlink, should the alt text mention that?
The gradient of creative commons licensing
Showing the "openness" spectrum
Different licensing options
Most open to less open.
If the image is coded as a link then that information will be made clear to the screen reader without having to share again. If it is going to a doc, PDF or other non website you should include that information.
This is a great example of an image that benefits soo much from a word description.
I have faculty that like to use banners on their Canvas pages that link back to their main modules page. Sometimes their alt text will be "click to return to modules page."
Same. And Canvas' accessibility checker doesn't tell you when heading levels are skipped
Pope Tech works the same way just selecting the Pope Tech button when you are in edit mode
In Canvas the mandatory caption is fine, but if memory serves its not possible to format it, or am I overlooking something?
There’s code that you can't see that tells a screen reader how to read this - so it can do for the user what we do when we look at it.
Hmmm I am playing with a table caption now and its more editable than I remember.
All good I figured it out
What does ARIA mean in WAVE?
Ah - good! Wanted to make sure that I did not accidentally silence you.
We have something similar called Ally
Oo that's good to know
Thank you for the formative session.
I'll have to go to tech committee and see if we can switch from Ally to Pope Tech
Thank you! Helpful, as always :)
Than you so much!
Thank you so much
Does Pope Tech show you the accessibility of the whole course like Ally? Or is it only showing you when you're in edit mode
