WebAIM - Web Accessibility In Mind

Canvas Learning Management System Certification
Verification of Substantial Conformance

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

A representative sample of Modules, Moderated Grading, Google and O365 integrations, and Rich Content Editor content was examined to evaluate substantial conformance. While not fully conformant, 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 August 21, 2018. However, based on our interactions with the Instructure development team, WebAIM is confident in their ability and willingness to maintain substantial conformance.
