Our campus has a Soft Chalk 6 site license. As Accessibility
specialist/trainer, I'm questioning the accessibility of the
"accessible" options available within the product and any of the third
party widgets that I've explored as optional resources for instructors
to implement. I'm just not seeing it as being as accessible across the
board as it's made out to be. I'm interested in the input of others who
have used, are using, or who have evaluated the product as a tool for
the creation of accessible course content. I'd actually love to find
that my skepticism is off track, because it is a tool that is easy for
our instructors to use. Thank you and I look forward to meeting as many
of you as I can at the upcoming Higher Ground conference in Colorado.
