Hi, Howard-- our practice at Iowa has been to make arrangements to have students take the exams in Word. Also, ExamSoft is widely used by states for their bar exams—Iowa has used a similar approach (non-student-owned laptop with Word and Jaws) for the bar exam.

Subject: [Athen] Accessibility of Examsoft

Hello All:

I'm helping our campus to evaluate the accessibility of ExamSoft and ExamSoft-M. If anyone else has evaluated or is using this product on their campus, can you tell me what your experience has revealed about its accessibility and any issues you've encountered. I also understand that ExamSoft is only accessible when it's used in non-secure mode or when ExamSoft-M, the iPad version, is used instead, which the college that plans to use this software has done in the past. Even then it seems to have limitations.

Does anyone know of a competing product that is more accessible? Thanks in advance for any input.
