About Blackboard Ally

Ally automatically creates alternative, accessible file formats (Tagged PDF, HTML, ePub, Electronic braille and Audio) for students to download. These formats are made available along with the original file so students can find everything in one convenient location.

Alternative Formats

Your instructor probably has many different files uploaded in your course. Ally creates alternative formats for those files. You can download the alternative formats anywhere that files are used. Just choose the version that best suits for your needs.
