Improving G-Suite Accessibility with Grackle

Content creators using the G Suite environment have some options for making content accessible, but not all functionality is present in the editing interface to resolve content accessibility issues.

For curriculum and other materials created in Docs, Sheets, or Slides, Grackle Suite by GrackleDocs, is comprised of the only add-ons that check, remediate, and create accessible output according to WCAG, PDF U/A and Google Accessibility standards. Grackle offers an inexpensive, unlimited educational site license for $500 annually per domain and is a Partner in the Foundation for California Community Colleges' CollegeBuys Program.

Grackle evaluates Docs, Sheets, and Slides content against common accessibility errors and then walks the author through a step-by-step remediation process to resolve potential barriers. Accessibility checks include missing or inappropriate image descriptions, incorrect heading structure, data tables missing headers, and reading order issues. In addition to fixing underlying accessibility issues, Grackle Docs and Grackle Slides also support the export of accessible PDF documents.

In this Accessibility Office Hours, we will review the different features of Grackle and share best practices for using it to check and remediate Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides. Topics will include how to evaluate new documents, repair existing ones, and how to export PDF versions that better support accessibility requirements.

Please join us. The Accessibility Office Hours offer the opportunity to ask questions and share best practices regarding web, document, and assistive technology accessibility issues. Audience participation is welcome!
