As a follow-up to my previous message, here's what we determined about using Natural Reader Online<https://www.naturalreaders.com/webapp.html> with Respondus LockDown Browser<https://www.respondus.com/products/lockdown-browser/>:

To enable a student to use Natural Reader Online<https://www.naturalreaders.com/webapp.html> while taking a Blackboard exam that requires Respondus LockDown Browser, instructors will need to follow these instructions to allow access to the naturalreaders.com domain: Accessing external web domains in LockDown Browser<https://support.respondus.com/support/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/478/19/accessing-external-web-domains-in-lockdown-browser>. As noted in the instructions, the instructor must also include the link to the NaturalReader Online Reader in the first quiz question (https://www.naturalreaders.com/online/).

Instructors who need help following these instructions may contact our Faculty resource Center, which provides faculty development and support for campus-wide instructional technologies, including Blackboard and Respondus tools.

Subject: [Athen] Natural Reader and LockDown Browser

Hi all,

I've received a request via our IT Service Desk from a student who is seeking guidance on using Natural Reader with Respondus LockDown Browser<https://www.respondus.com/products/lockdown-browser/>.

Our office plans to do some testing, but does anyone have any advice/recommendations/cautionary tales regarding the use of NaturalReader Online<https://www.naturalreaders.com/webapp.html> or NaturalReader Software<https://www.naturalreaders.com/software.html> with LockDown Browser?

Respondus provides this information for assistive technology users: Is LockDown Browser accessible to those with disabilities?<https://support.respondus.com/support/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/187/0/is-lockdown-browser-accessible-to-those-with-disabilities>
