Accessibility remain the same in LMS?

Jan 16, 2019

Does the accessibility features and functions remain the same whether they are on a website or in Canvas LMS?

Need to know this for:

Storyline 360

Studio 360 




Thanks so much!

Hi Julie,

With Storyline 360 and Studio 360 you can create courses that support Section 508 accessibility guidelines and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).  See these articles for details:

Storyline 360 and Studio 360 courses also work with JAWS 16 and later. See this article for supported browsers.

Rise isn't fully accessible yet. Our ultimate goal is to meet accessibility guidelines. So far, we’ve increased the contrast for built-in course features, added alt text for images, and added keyboard-accessible navigation. And we’re currently working on full screen reader support. Stay tuned!

You'll also want to check with your LMS team to see if there are particular areas of accessible that they don't support.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Hi Julie,

In theory, they are most likely to be the same. I think the only way you will know this for sure is to test the published LMS courses and the website courses for accessibility in different browsers and devices. I would not rely on anyone saying they should behave the same. I hope this answers your question.
