Blackboard and Textbook Publishers

Ok, so I had this conversation with a publisher today about making my course more accessible... and he asked me for tips.  The two things I told him that I saw right away were that: 1) Links out to the publisher assignments/readings did not open in a new window (which best practice is that all weblinks open in a new window/tab)... and 2) that it does not give the option to insert instructions along with the assignment in the Blackboard shell. 

 

Does anyone else have any other recommendations for accessibility when pairing with Blackboard (aside from the obvious alt tags, tables and video captioning, which I also mentioned to him?)

 

Best,
