For people with visual impairments, perceptions about the world are created with the senses, but how does sensory input translate to graphics in the online learning environment? Providing information-rich educational graphics is a cornerstone of many online courses; however, ensuring they are accessible to all learners can sometimes be a challenge for faculty.
