[Athen] JAWS and ISPRING

Afternoon y'all

I might have been dreaming, but I swear someone asked this question before, so I greatly apologize for asking again. Typically, I save all ATHEN related emails, but could find nothing in my history on this question, so here goes!

We utilize Ispring to capture online lectures and then link them in BlackBoard. I'm doing an accessibility audit for our distance ed folks and am having some problems with JAWS and Ispring.

Here are the facts:

In Google Chrome, JAWS recognizes nothing and only repeats the URL to me. I can't move focus into the page.
In Firefox, it does the same.
In Internet Explorer (that's right, IE!), it WORKS and works pretty darn well. I'm able to control the playback options, and everything seems to be properly tagged.

Any thoughts on why this is happening? Any suggestions on how to tackle it from an accessibility standpoint? Maybe I'm just not doing something right...

Thanks for your thoughts!
Stay warm!
