Russell, Angel, et al.,

Thank you, Angel. I did find that the discussion board functions in D2L
were accessible through ChromeVox, though not necessarily user-friendly.
Fortunately, Russell's suggestion regarding Safari's user agents appears to
solve the VoiceOver issue. Changing the user agent in Safari to IOS allowed
VoiceOver to access the discussion board functions effectively. I haven't
tried changing the user agent to Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome yet, but I'm
looking forward to trying it out.

Thank you so much for all of your suggestions!
