Panorama accessibility tool launches in UM Learn

Panorama helps instructors make their course materials more accessible.

June 23, 2022 — 

Panorama is now live in UM Learn to help you make your course materials as accessible as possible. Panorama checks how accessible your files are and supplies accessible alternative formats for all your files including accessible PDF, high contrast, text to speech, braille and audio files.

How Panorama helps instructors

Panorama not only assesses your material, it guides you through suggestions of how to improve your course material’s accessibility. Then it’s up to you how you want to proceed. You are the only person who can access your accessibility reports – no one else will see or evaluate you on them, and using Panorama is totally optional. For best performance, we recommend installing the Panorama extension only on Chrome, Firefox and Edge browsers.
