[Athen] Microsoft O365

I've poked our campus rep again this evening as he had promised us some follow-up regarding this issue.
I too believe some collective action may be in order.
Currently we've added the following to our email launch page at https://email.osu.edu

* Attention Screen Reader Users: Due to a recent BuckeyeMail upgrade, screen reader users may have difficulty signing into BuckeyeMail. For assistance, please contact the IT Service Desk at 688-HELP (4357)<tel:614-688-4357> or 8help at osu.edu<mailto:8help at osu.edu>.

A KB article is being drafted to document the JAWS workaround(s) we've found, and I'd be happy to share that with interested parties once it is finished.

I am interested in collective action - did you have something in mind? everyone sending in a complaint the same day to the accessibility address, the general help address, and their campus representative.

Hello everyone,
Happy Holidays!

I can't stop thinking about the Microsoft O365 issues and how many of us are now using Microsoft for our student email option. I know that there has been a submission to Microsoft's accessibility email address about this, but I am feeling that there is power in numbers.

I would like to know if other Universities, Colleges and other Higher Education entities would like to individually but collectively together address this with Microsoft?
