Good afternoon!

Our college currently uses Blackboard, but our Distance Education unit is looking into a new LMS. They are currently considering and demoing Canvas. I've found this summer's version of their VPAT online and some other materials, but I'm curious about actual user experience with accessibility. Are any of your schools using Canvas? Have you or your students (or staff/faculty) with disabilities encountered any accessibility or usability challenges? It sounds like they may be checking out D2L as well, so if anyone has any experience with D2L pros and cons, that would be great, too. I've used Blackboard as an instructor, and I've used D2L for a short MOOC as a student, so I have some experience with those interfaces.

Does anyone know of any recent LMS accessibility comparison studies? I've only been able to locate ones which are several years old.

Thanks so much for your insight!
