Panorama for Digital Accessibility Tool for Brightspace LMS

Panorama for Digital Accessibility is a YuJa Video Enterprise System companion tool. It allows instructors to identify and correct accessibility issues for several digital file types uploaded to Brightspace. It also provides several alternative formats for users to engage with the content more easily. It is available for individual courses upon request, including your course URL and the semester you wish Panorama to be available within your course site.  Each course for each semester has to be identified in the Brightspace ticket along with a request for Panorama support so it will get directed to the Panorama Support Team.

Panorama will generate Accessibility Scores in sites where Panorama is enabled for DOC, DOCX, PPT, PPTX, PDF, HTML, TXT, GIF, XLS, XLSX, ODT, ODP, ODS, and RTF file types, as well as editable HTML pages.
