[Athen] Vista Higher learning course materials

Hi, Maureen. Unfortunately, a lot of pre-packaged online course materials are partially or completely inaccessible with JAWS (and other AT, or keyboard access), and there isn't much in the way of work-arounds that you can do that will provide equivalent access. It's an ongoing conversation with our purchasing units to get them to ask appropriate questions before purchasing materials, and with the publishers to get them to make necessary changes.

Sorry for the bad news,

Does anyone have experience trying to access online course materials from this publisher website. vhlcentral.com

This is an online workbook environment being used in conjunction with an intermediate Spanish course. It does not appear to be very accessible with JAWS, but wondered if anyone has any work arounds or suggestions.

Thanks in advance for feedback and suggesstions.
