YuJa Video and Panorama introduce new features to make your work more accessible

YuJa Video and Panorama Digital Accessibility introduce new features

December 14, 2022 — 

YuJa Video and Panorama Digital Accessibility are constantly adding new features to help you make your work as accessible as possible. 

YuJa Video

  • New Microsoft PowerPoint ribbon add-On: The YuJa Software Capture application can be installed as a Ribbon within Microsoft PowerPoint to provide users with a more seamless recording experience. The Ribbon will allow users to automatically sync the start and end of the recording with their presentation session.
  • Browser Capture Studio now supports Apple Safari: With Safari version 14 supporting the MediaRecorder API, the Browser Capture can now be used with Apple Safari.
  • Advanced media search is now available: The Advanced Search Console is focused on providing users with the ability to seamlessly filter through Titles, Folders, Metadata, Comments, Owners, and more.

Panorama Digital Accessibility

  • Reprocess all documents within a course: Admins and Instructors who wish to re-generate Alternative Formats and Accessibility Reports for a course may do so with the click of a button. Simply access your Course Report or Content tab within the Panorama LTI app and select Reprocess Course.
  • Instructors can now hide alternative formats: Instructors can now choose to enable or disable student access to the Alternative Formats menu for individual files.
  • Real-time accessibility improvement suggestions for color contrast and font size: Suggestions for color contrast allow Content Creators to resolve WCAG 2.1 color contrast issues by choosing from a recommended selection of complementary text or background colors. Font size issues that could affect readability will automatically be detected and easy-to-use recommendations to adjust the text size are provided.

Panorama Digital Accessibility – math-related

  • Users can now convert all text files to LaTeX: Panorama can now convert text-based files to LaTeX. This includes the ability to recognize and convert math equations within documents, whether they be directly embedded into the document or included as an image.
  • New alternative math formats support for printed and handwritten math equations: Panorama now supports converting documents containing math equations into audio files and clear text (i.e. numbers and symbols to words) to improve readability.
