UDOIT – or the Universal Design Online Content Inspection Tool – is a tool available in all Canvas courses that scans your course and flags any accessibility issues, and provides information on how to fix the issues. UDOIT scans for typical accessibility issues including:
- Use of headings in page structure
- Alternative text for images
- Table headers
- Color contrast
- Video captions
Notably, UDOIT does NOT scan files that you upload to Canvas – for example, Word documents, PowerPoint slides, and PDF files. See our Creating Accessible Digital Materials resource page for more information on how to create accessible docs, slides, and PDFs.
