WebAIM - Web Accessibility In Mind

Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) by Instructure Certification
Verification of Substantial Conformance

WebAIM, an independent authority in web accessibility, evaluated the Canvas Learning Management System (LMS) by Instructure application and certifies its substantial conformance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Version 2.1 Level A and AA.

A representative sample of frequently used aspects of Canvas were evaluated in both Student and Instructor roles. This sample includes but was not limited to general navigation, course content, New Quizzes, grading, communication, and administration. This representative content was examined to evaluate substantial conformance. While not fully conformant, conformance issues that pose significant barriers to users with disabilities have been addressed in the sample evaluated.

WebAIM cannot verify the conformance or accessibility of content beyond the scope of the sample, nor content changed after September 8, 2021.


This verification specifically excludes the 2019 Gradebook Release Guide, TinyMCE and Chat.
