[Athen] Monitoring Students During Tests

Hello everyone:

I know I've asked this before on the AHEAD list but I don't think I have
here. If so, please accept my apologies for the repeat post.

Currently, we have a camera system for monitoring our students in the
testing center. On the computers, we have a program called SentryPC, which
logs everything on the computers -- keystrokes, sites visited, programs
open, etc. With this program, I can block access to certain sites.
Problem is that it is always killed off by Symantec Antivirus (despite
exceptions), the web interface is not very accessible (I am a blind screen
reader user), and a host of other issues.

I am trying to find other solutions, because my administration is reluctant
to get rid of this program until I find a replacement.

What are folks using to monitor their testing computers? Ultimately, it
should not interfere with any assistive technology, including screen
readers, which I would imagine the browser lockdown programs probably do.

Looking forward to whatever people have to say on this matter.
