Hi Joseph and Peter,
We've tested MindTap a couple times, and the screen reader users who tested
it and I thought it was very accessible. There were some limitations
depending on the textbook though (such as our experience with a symbolic
logic text where all of the symbols were images without alt text), and
embedded quizzes don't seem to be accessible. But the ebook reader itself,
our screen reader testers (2 - one with JAWS a few years ago and one
testing with NVDA just yesterday) thought was great.
The flashcard study tool also is accessible to NVDA.
The video player wasn't accessible to our testers, and we didn't do a deep
dive into bookmarking or all the tools offered. But overall we felt like
the reader and the flashcards were great.
Peter, what did you find that wasn't accessible? Color contrast was poor.
And the embedded quizzes only show the correct answer with color, so that
stinks. I didn't do a keyboard only test yet.
