Canvas Help Page: How do I use the Accessibility Checker in the Rich Content Editor

Open Rich Content Editor

Open the Rich Content Editor using one of the Canvas features which support the Editor.

Open Accessibility Checker

Click the Accessibility Checker icon.

Note: Depending on the width of your browser window, you may have to scroll the menu bar horizontally to view the icon.

View Issues

View Issues

When an issue is detected, the Rich Content Editor highlights the affected area [1]. The sidebar displays the accessibility attribute [2] and an explanation of the error [3]. To learn more about the accessibility attribute, click the Information icon [4].

View Additional Issues

If the Rich Content Editor contains more than one issue, you can view all issues by clicking the Previous or Next buttons.

Apply Fix

To correct an issue, complete the task as noted in the sidebar [1]. For instance, if the issue requires a caption be added to a table, the sidebar displays a text field for you to enter a caption.

When you are finished with your changes, click the Apply Fix button [2].

The Accessibility Checker will apply the fix and display information for the next issue. Continue to review and fix any detected issues within the editor.

Confirm Fix

When all issues have been fixed, or if no issues are detected in the Rich Content Editor, the sidebar indicates that no issues exist and will close automatically.
