Blackboard Ally measures the accessibility of your course content and displays an accessibility indicator showing how it scores. The higher the score the fewer the issues.

Blackboard Ally low score indicator Low (0-33%). File has severed accessibility issues and needs immediate attention.

Blackboard Ally medium score indicator Medium (34-66%). File is somewhat accessible and could use improvement.

Blackboard Ally high score indicator High (67-99%). File is accessible but could be improved.

Blackboard Ally perfect score indicator Perfect (100%). File is accessible. Ally didn’t identify any accessibility issues but further improvements may still be possible.

For files with Low to High scores, Ally shows you the issues and provides step-by-step guidance on how to improve them.

The accessibility indicator is only visible to instructors and cannot be seen by students.
