I asked Blackboard’s accessibility lead, JoAnna Hunt, about this. She says, “We are in the process of creating some documentation around how to use Bb Discussion boards with JAWS. Should be ready next week. I’ll share back then.”

Have a good day,

Hi Everyone,
Does anyone have materials or information about accessibility issues with the Blackboard Discussion Board? Are there any guides or “work arounds” regarding this issue that any one is aware of?
Thank you,
