We recently had issues with some Skillsoft Skillport content that was Flash-based and would not work with ZoomText. The issues have not been resolved yet.

Dear All,
We are evaluating Skillsoft and Open Sesame/Saba on campus for a Human resources LMS software I have been given VPAT’s for both of them. After seeing a demonstration and looking at the VPAT’s I have some questions and help you can give me would be appreciated:

1. Does anyone have experience with either of the above software’s and accessibility

a. If you do have experience can you share the information with me

2. THE VPAT’s are very different and I have questions about them. Can anyone share experiences that they have had with VPAT’s and reviewing them

3. When accessing a software products has it helped to talk with the dedicated person who works in the access ability of products. Any tips on questions to ask and how to follow up would also be helpful
Thanks in advance for your help
