Learn the importance of using headings when creating resources in Canvas to help screen readers easily understand the structure of the page.
- One way to improve accessibility in your course…is to use headings when using the Rich Content Editor.…Now, this is a good idea because it helps to organize…the information inside of a resource,…like a Page, an Assignment, or Assessment, so it makes…it easier for everyone to understand and comprehend.…But this is especially important for someone…who's using a screen reader.…So if someone has a visual impairment…and needs to use a screen reader, it will easily…be able to navigate through the different headings…and let the person understand the structure of the page.…
So right here, I just have some generic text in here…and this is a Genetics Study Guide…that I'm creating inside of a new page.…Right now, I just have it all as regular text,…but as you can see, it's kind of hard to understand…what is what and how it's organized.…Now I could go in and make this bold, underline things,…maybe highlight things and make it look better,…but this doesn't do the full trick, because that won't help…screen readers to read it better.…
