August 2019


Our August 2019 new features and enhancements were available beginning 8AM on Friday, August 23th 2019. Read below for information on the update on your site!      



Add Alt Text to Images in the Rich Text Editor

The Image Properties tool, now found inside the RTE, will allow you to edit alt text and resize images from within the RTE. This tool will ensure that images are consistently sized and keep their original proportions. It will also make it easier to add Alt Text to images to comply with best practices for website accessibility.


Accessibility Tab

You may notice a new tab in the Manage Site section of your school. This is in preparation for the release of eChalk Guide, a new integrated tool for website accessibility and ADA compliance. Guide will help you find and fix content accessibility issues on your site, both before and after a page is published. 

Check out the new Guide Tutorial to see how easy it is to identify and correct accessibility issues in your eChalk site using Guide. Contact us to activate Guide for your site.
