UDOIT Accessibility Checker - Overview
This document provides some basic information about the centrally supported accessibility checker UDOIT, including tips on how to get started using the tool.
What is UDOIT?
The Universal Design Online Content Inspection Tool, or UDOIT (pronounced, “You Do It”), is a course accessibility checker that allows instructors to scan an entire Canvas course to identify accessibility barriers. After the scan, an instructor can correct some barriers directly through the tool. For barriers that cannot be corrected within the tool, guidance is provided to help an instructor remove the barrier.
Checks for many accessibility barriers, including:
- Headings in page structure
- Alternative text for images
- Table headers
- Color contrast
- Video captions
Please note: some items cannot be examined by UDOIT. These include external documents and some videos/audio files for captioning/transcripts. Refer to the Accessible Documents guide, the Accessible Video and Audio Content guide, and Create accessible online course materials for more information on accessibility best practices.
Highlights barriers in the following areas of course:
- information regarding UDOIT accessibility and usability
- to report an accessibility barrier
- to request accessibility assistance
- learn about disability-related accommodations
