Hi Selim,

I'd be interested to know which other distance learning systems you tested and what the results were. We're currently reviewing several options and accessibility is an important concern.

Thank you,
Justin Reynolds

Below I have outlined some issues Blackboard versus Jaws both running on earlier versions before Vista 9 and Jaws 11 !

At Metropolitan state college of Denver we are running Blackboard vista 9 for our distance learning system.

We had tested others as well and think blackboard is still the most compatible in accessibility.

The biggest challenge is to train faculty to create accessible course designs another one is some distant learners are still using jaws 5 or 6!

Blackboard has good accessible course design tools you can implement and train your faculty.
