Populr Guide for Accessibility
All Images such as logos, headshots, banners, graphs, as well as, decorative ones must:
- be saved with descriptive names or as the name of the photo
The saved name of the file serves as "alt text" in Populr.
When using images off the web:
- it is highly recommended to use Creative Commons images

When using color in your course documents:
- Be sure the contrast between text and background is sufficient
To test download: Colour Contrast Analyzer
- Color should not be used to emphasize or draw attention to an item.
It is recommended to use a text based identifier instead such as:
“Items marked with a *” instead of “items marked in blue"
