[Athen] Training resource for D2L

D2L has a document they created called Accessibility in Brightspace Learning Environment - Learner Guide<https://community.brightspace.com/resources/documentation/learning_environment/accessibility_in_brightspace_learning_environment_learner_guide>. Perhaps this is useful?

We also use D2L, and I’d be very interested what other folks have to say about making this system as accessible as possible.

On a personal note, I’ve found that NVDA and Firefox work better for some parts of D2L than NVDA with Chrome. I haven’t tested JAWS in D2L. Please note that I’m an intermediate novice screen-reader user, so it could be user error.

Hi Hadi, et al,

I had a screenreader user contact me about training for D2L, both from a student and teacher perspective. Do you (or anyone else) have any resources you could suggest?
