Blackboard Ally

Blackboard Ally logo

Blackboard Ally is a tool which scans for and remediates accessibility issues in our learning management system (LMS).

If you are an instructor, Bb Ally can assist you by scanning content, providing alternative versions of that content, and guiding you through steps to remediate issues which cannot be resolved automatically.

If you are a student, Bb Ally can assist you by providing alternative versions of certain content, including:

  • Tagged PDF files that are structured for use with assistive technology
  • HTML files for use in web browsers and mobile devices
  • ePub files for use with e-book readers
  • Electronic braille (BRF) files for use with an electronic braille display
  • Audio files for listening

Support for Bb Ally is provided in partnership with the Office of Accessible Technology.
