Carol Hobson

UDOIT folks at UofF are great to work with
Will Breitbach
01:11:22
Any discsussion of the Tech Center hosting this for us?
CCC DECO
01:11:36
@Will - no but great idea!
Jon Stocker Merced College
01:12:05
Tlak to our IT about installing on a campus server, will run faster

Does it check Word, PPT files? PDFs?
Jon Stocker Merced College
01:12:24
No
Will Breitbach
01:13:14
Our IT could probably not support an Open Source PHP based tool :(
CCC DECO
01:13:28
@Jon - good point, but might be helpful for colleges that don't have an IT person capable of setting it up
Rebecca Pang
01:13:28
Do you know how much server space is needed?
Jon Stocker Merced College
01:14:01
Our AV manager installed it on a Heroku server which if you watch the youtube video recommends
Pamela J Bimbi
01:15:57
How much does this do that the Canvas Accessibility Tool does not currently cover?
Jon Stocker Merced College
01:16:37
The conrast checker portion is awesome
Rebecca Pang
01:16:39
@OEI or HighTech Center - Would OEI or HighTech Center consider providing server space for UDOIT so that all CA community college can use it?
Jim Julius
01:16:52
The decorative image check box is back when adding an image in the regular way I believe - saw it yesterday
Anna Stirling
01:16:57
The decoritive image check box is coming to the RCE in the next production release.
CCC DECO
01:17:12
@Rebecca - IT says depends on activity level, but ours is about 300MB for files plus about 140MB for the database
Anna Stirling
01:17:23
It is already there when you add a new image from the Images sidebar.
Rebecca Pang
01:17:32
Thank you.
Jim Julius
01:17:32
Yes Anna that’s where it wsa
Barbara Illowsky
01:18:06
OEI will be discussing this and other accessibility tools in the Accessibility Workgroup. I’m not sure about the server space. Will check. It’s not what we normally do…. which doesn’t mean we won’t.
CCC DECO
01:18:24
@Anna - Canvas told us it was Corrine's work that was the impetus for that correction - yay Corrine!
Anna Stirling
01:18:34
@Jim - It will be added to the image option from the RCE, saw it in the beta release notes earlier this week.
Jim Julius
01:18:54
Great, Anna - hadn’t seen that, thanks
Anna Stirling
01:19:05
That's AWESOME!!
Greg - CRC
01:19:05
I thought Blackboard Ally was on the cards, especially given its ability to generate instance-wide reports to help sysadmins decide where to direct interventions for support
CCC DECO
01:19:15
@Greg - Ally has been pulled
Anna Stirling
01:19:58
@Jim - https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13987-canvas-beta-release-notes-2018-01-15#jive_content_id_Decorative_Image_Checkbox
Greg - CRC
01:20:02
Thanks @CCC DECO. We’re looking at it locally so would love to know why it was pulled. Can that be shared here?
CCC DECO
01:20:05
lack of successful contract negotiations
Barbara Illowsky
01:20:21
BB Ally is negotiating a contract with the Foundation for colleges for individually contract for the service. OEI will not be having a contract to support paying for colleges’ use of Ally.
Greg - CRC
01:20:36
Thanks @Barbara
Barbara Illowsky
01:20:41
@greg & others - $$$$
Rebecca Pang
01:21:26
@Barbara. Thank you. UDOIT requires server space and it could be cloud-based, therefore it would make sense to centralize it somewhere.
Barbara Illowsky
01:21:42
Fresno’s rate for Ally was almost $50k/year and did not include the other 2 colleges in its district

01:22:44
Don't foget that blue, red, and green are the colors for those that are colored blind.
Barbara Illowsky
01:23:18
OEI could not scale up Ally use for the Consortium. BTW - Fresno did have very positive things to say about the actual Ally software. It’s the $$

Cynthia Alexander
01:26:10
Has anyone used the Canvas accessibility tool?
Anna Stirling
01:26:33
@Cynthia - Yes.
Carol Hobson
01:26:41
@Cynthia, I just started and it's pretty easy. Not sure what all it checks though.
Lisa Beach
01:26:57
@Cynthia - I think Corrine uses it for individual pages. Feel free to reach out to her at chaverinen@santarosa.edu
Jim Julius
01:27:07
Cynthia, that’s the tool that is part of the rich content editor?
Anna Stirling
01:27:08
It has some limitations, but it's a good start. And it's getting better with every update.

01:27:27
I have used it but found it made suggestions to alter html which facility would freak over so I haven’t introduced it
Helen Graves
01:27:28
@Cynthia - it’s not accurate for alt text currently (doesn’t indicate error for alt text with file format)

Corrine Haverinen
01:28:32
Canvas accessibility tool does not catch many items, such as lists, links, empty headers, and even some times ALT text
Brett Myhren
01:28:36
Thanks Barbara and Corrine!

Thanks everyone!
