Ally Accessibility Tool

Ally is an accessibility checker found within Moodle. You may have noticed the gauges in your course. These are visuals to remind you that the Ally Accessibility Checker exists and is there to help you make your course as accessible as possible.  Ally Quick Start Guide Ally Guide to Improve Accessibility Ally Instructor FAQs

Video Accessibility

All videos should have captioning.  When curating video for your courses, select only those that have accurate captions with punctuation included.  When creating video, there are strategies and tools available to help.   If you use a script for your video, you can upload the file to VidGrid to provide captions.  VidGrid provides automated machine captions that take seconds to turn on.  You can also easily edit your own captions. Adding Video Captions in VidGrid Editing Video Captions in VidGrid If you need video captioned to fulfill a student accommodation, please contact christie_bundy@davidsondavie.edu for immediate support.
