I have used Read & Write’s Screenshot Reader feature to read text in a lockdown environment before. Did your student worker use this feature?

Hello Athenians

Our school uses Respondus Lockdown Browser to secure Canvas quizzes so that students don't go surfing the net for answers. I know you can flip a switch and allow a specific student to use JAWS or NVDA in conjunction with Lockdown Browser to read quizzes. What we are in need of is a method of using a text-to-speech software program for students with print disabilities who are not blind. My student worker has tested Read & Write, Balabolka and Natural Reader, none of which function in the Lockdown Browser. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thank you for your kind and insightful advice,
