Blackboard Ally Basics

Blackboard Ally focuses on making digital course content more accessible and building a more inclusive learning environment.  This improves the student experience by helping them take clear control of course content with usability, accessibility, and quality in mind.

Blackboard Ally Score Indicators

Accessibility Scores

The score indicators are only shown to the instructor as a way to help them improve their accessibility score for their course documents.

Ally checks accessibility for your new and existing course content.  To measure accessibility, Ally assigns your content an accessibility score.  Each score is composed of both a numerical number and a colored gauge that reflects the number.
