Keep C.A.L.M. and Use UDOIT

This year marks the first-ever accessibility campaign on our campus! Instructors, learn how to Keep C.A.L.M. (Creating Accessible Learning Materials) and use the UDOIT tools in Canvas to fix inaccessible course materials.

The 2023-24 Keep C.A.L.M. campaign comes out of a collaboration between our center and the Inclusive Physical and Virtual Campus Committee. Learn more about how this committee creates a more welcoming, accessible, and inclusive campus.

What is assistive technology and how can it support your learning this year?

Students who are connected with the Student Disability Center can Request a Meeting to meet with ATRC staff. You’ll explore technology supports and strategies for reading, note-taking, writing, or any school-related task, no matter your learning style.

To learn more, visit our Student Services page or explore free assistive technology with our Quick Start Guides.

CSU is piloting ReadSpeaker, a campuswide online text to speech tool built directly into Canvas. ReadSpeaker’s TextAid tool and web extension read other websites, PDFs, and other documents aloud. It is mobile browser compatible, so users can listen on the go.

ReadSpeaker allows streaming to mp3, extracting highlights, visual adjustments, and much more. Check out ReadSpeaker for Canvas for details.
