Quarterly Newsletter - February 2023

Happy February! This month we released UDOIT Advantage, an accessibility assistant for Canvas, and have been happily surprised by the overwhelming interest in it. We are planning lots of upcoming events and conference sponsorships this year too! We love seeing our customers in person and hearing from you directly. Let us know if you are presenting about Cidi Labs or going to any of the conferences we’ll be at. We look forward to connecting with you!

Follow the links below to sate your curious mind. “I just did a pilot with one of our departments, where we took a section of courses and I tried to make the documents in Word, PDF, or PowerPoint accessible. That process was one file at a time. It was so labor intensive, which is why I am so excited for UDOIT Advantage, – Khaled Musa, Academic Technologist – Accessibility Focus, University of Minnesota

Do you wish there was an easy way to convert all those inaccessible files into Canvas pages?

See how UDOIT Advantage makes this possible!
