WebAIM - Web Accessibility In Mind

Canvas Student and Canvas Teacher Mobile Applications Certification
Verification of Substantial Conformance

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

A representative sample of the frequently used aspects of Canvas’ Teacher and Student Mobile Applications were evaluated in both Student and Instructor roles. This sample includes but was not limited to general navigation, course content, 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 June 14, 2021. However, based on our interactions with the Instructure development team, WebAIM is confident in their ability and willingness to maintain substantial conformance.


Visual annotations, as viewable in Canvas Student and editable in Canvas Teacher, are excluded from this conformance statement based on accessibility limitations in the underlying technology.
