Moodle Accessibility File Scan Block

Moodle block to check PDFs for accessibility.

This Moodle block consists of two main functions:

  • A scheduled task that looks for PDFs within courses, sends them to an external server to check for accessibilty, and saves the results to the Moodle database
  • A Moodle block that displays the accessibility status of the PDF files within the course. On the Moodle course page, the block displays a summary with a link to a detailed view with all the files in the course.

Requirements

Installation

  • Clone or download this repository into the <moodle root>/blocks directory
  • Rename the directory from block-filescan to filescan
  • Log into Moodle as an admin and update Moodle to add the block

Configuration

This plugin configuration requires a URL for the File Scan Server.

By default, the scheduled task is set to scan an additional set of files every 5 minutes. This can be adjusted in the Server --> Scheduled Tasks screen.

There are configurations for help links for each type of accessibility problems. These links can be set to specific URL's for remiation of the file.
