[Athen] Accessibility of Interactive Whiteboard Hardware and Software

Good morning!

Does anyone have experience with interactive whiteboard software?

Our college purchased a Wacom Cintiq 22HD for our recording studio. Instructors have the option to use this when recording lectures for online classes. I'm unable to locate any accessibility information about the hardware.

The Wacom appears to have come with Sankore. From what I can tell, this is a free, open-source interactive whiteboard software application. I'm unable to locate any accessibility information on it either. Complicating this application is the fact that all support information and tutorials appear to be in French.

Since these are just optional resources for instructors, I'm more concerned with the accessibility of the output to students in courses, but I can't find any information about that either. Does anyone use Wacom products on their campuses? Have you come up with any solutions? Are there any more accessible applications that can be used the Wacom?

Thanks so much for any ideas!
