Our campus uses BOX. My students with visual impairments access it through the accessible version and have no problems with it. One of the students uses JAWS and the other uses VoiceOver.

Subject: [Athen] Box cloud file sharing accessibility

My institution is considering Box<https://www.box.com/home>, cloud based file sharing and storage, as another option for all community members. I've been asked to review and provide comments on accessibility. I've taken a cursory look and they have an Accessible Version and a Standard Version, which doesn't thrill me. I'm wondering if any of you have reviewed this product, or use it on your campuses - and what your impressions are.

Thanks in advance,
