• Creating Accessible Content

    Checklist for Blackboard WCM Content Editors

    While creating website content it is crucial to consider accessibility. There are a few basic steps that should be followed in order to assure your content is accessible:

    • Add built-in Headings to document and do not skip numbers (e.g. jumping from Heading 1 to Heading 3)
    • Use built-in List options (e.g. bullets or numbers)
    • Add Alt Text for links
    • Add Alt Text for images
    • Define Table Headers and simplify Tables as much as possible
