Hi Ken,
Thanks for sharing. This is great info! A lot to digest here, but early on, one of the things that is intriguing to me is the ability of D2L to render math problems in MathML. Could those equations then be copied out of the system and conceivably rendered as Braille? Quite interesting if so.

Hi Al,

Hadi Rangin, Marc Thompson, Brian Richwine, and I are working on a redo of our LMS comparison for Midwest Educause in March. We compare Bb, Moodle, Sakai, and D2L. Last year's version, presented at CSUN, is here:

Hello everyone,
MSU is currently considering both aforementioned options for our next learning Management System. I have not had personal experience with either of these, but I understand Blackboard has made significant strides in terms of accessibility in its most recent versions. Can anyone comment as to how these two compare from an accessibility standpoint?
