Having used the system a bit, I find it somewhat awkward. While it's technically accessible, I find quite a few usability challenges with Moodle. I'd rather use Blackboard or another open-source system like Sakai.

Hi Norm. I think you mean Moodle, with an em. Moodle is an open-
source courseware product. While I don't know how accessible it
currently is for users of screen readers, they do have an
accessibility manifesto (my words, not theirs), which can be found at
