I am interested in what other institutions are doing for checking accessibility for content within your private, password-protectd areas, especially the Learning Management System and any Sharepoint sites.

* What LMS are you using?

* What automated system, if any, do you use to check this site?

* What procedures or processes do you use to inventory the accessibility status for documents in the LMS and internal sites? Do you have a batch analysis software? Do you use manual spot-checking?

* Please share (on the list or by private email) how you ensure content within these areas is accessible, especially if you have large amounts of content in form of documents created before the accessibility initiatives started. How do you ensure online courses are accessible?

We are using D2L Brightspace, so I would be especially interested in hearing from institutions using that system.
