Does anyone have any recent accessibility data on proctoring software like
this? This is being asked on the EDUCAUSE CIO list. Feel free to either
repost to the ATHEN list and I can make sure it gets over to the CIO list,
or post it directly to the CIO list. To do the latter you will have to
become a member of the CIO list - and just a warning, that list has a lot
of traffic so you will receive a lot of email.

To: CIO at listserv.educause.edu

We're looking at remote exam proctoring services, such as "Software Secure"
and :"Proctor Free". Accessibility (section 508) compliance, such as
providing an excellent screen-reader user-experience, is primary for us.

Although various levels of 508 compliance are reported by vendors, we're
looking for anyone with experience and confidence in such a tool and its
accessibility compliance and features.

JAWS and NVDA are our standard supported screen-readers.

Any info or thoughts will be appreciated, Thanks!.
