We use Turning Tech and our SWD have been happy thus far. The company has
a response device for students with vision impairments that includes
braille buttons and vibration-based feedback. According to our rep, the
company¹s mobile tool, Responseware, is supposedly being developed to meet
WCAG 2.0 AA, but we have not done full testing.

Hi all,

Our university is evaluating vendors for a campus-wide student
response system. We have Turning Technologies (also our current
vendor) and iClicker as final vendors.

If you are using either, how do you your students with disabilities
find it to use? Any advice most appreciated.

Thank you.

Best Regards,
