Macalester College Selects YuJa Panorama Digital Accessibility Platform to Drive Campuswide Inclusivity
Macalester College, a private liberal arts institution in Saint Paul, Minnesota, is expanding on its commitment to accessibility by selecting the YuJa Panorama Digital Accessibility Platform to provide accessible course content to all students. The institution has a history of disability activism and promotes Universal Design for Learning, or a research-based framework for creating accessible learning environments.
“Macalester College has a strong history of creating inclusive learning environments for its students.”
The institution was seeking a platform with the ability to remediate documents, including scanned and PDF versions of content. YuJa Panorama has an image accessibility engine that converts these types of documents into a digital format that can be processed by screen readers and searched electronically.
In addition, it automatically generates accessible versions of documents, auto-captions video content, and provides users with customized website accessibility options they can apply to any webpage. The Platform provides an accessibility gauge, pinpoints accessibility issues, and provides video guidance on how to fix inaccessible content. YuJa Panorama integrates directly with Moodle, the college’s learning management system.
“Macalester College has a strong history of creating inclusive learning environments for its students,” said Nathan Arora, Chief Business Officer at YuJa, Inc. “YuJa Panorama will help in that endeavor with user-friendly tools that make it simple to create documents everyone can use.”
