Hi all,

Here is a question that was forwarded to me. I think I already know the answer to this, but I'm hoping I'm wrong.

The program being used is ALEKS. Have any of you had dealings with this program?


Hi to All,

We likely will have a blind student in our developmental math program this fall. We have been told that screen readers do not work on math programs because it does not know what to do with math symbols. Our program is currently all on computer. The program does include lectures etc. but am very uncertain about testing and some other issues.

If you have had any experience in this area I could really use some information and help. Do you have any suggestion as to where I might look for assistance with this?

Thanks for your time and assistance.
