How we plan to improve accessibility in Canvas

Our accessibility roadmap shows how and when we plan to improve accessibility on canvas.swan.ac.uk:

  • Review the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) Accessibility Audit on annual basis to assess conformance to WCAG 2.1 standards.
  • Work with Canvas and LTI providers to address accessibility issues raised through our internal audit and testing of sample pages.
  • Work with content editors to educate them on accessibility best practice regarding use of headers and image alternatives.
  • Communicate any serious accessibility concerns and issues raised directly from end users to Canvas and LTI providers for them to be addressed as soon as possible.
  • Investigate processes to monitor and automate accessibility compliance testing of the Canvas platform to establish a culture of continous improvement with accessibility in the university.

This work will be undertaken over the next 12 months.
