My students are using it, with no complaints. As far as I know, it works. But anything still sitting in D2L or on the browser will be a problem.

Hello Susan,

Do you have experience with Voice Over working with Word in it's native form? Not in D2L.

We did not.

The problem is not Voiceover. It is D2L. The student needs to save the file out, and then open it in Word and read it.

D2L frame setup will keep a lot of things from reading inside it. It's best to download and open from the right application (Word, PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat).
