Our college has been asked to test Top Hat for accessibility. Is this the same Top Hat you are talking about? https://tophat.com/

If so, can I get your accessibility reviews or whatever you have about accessibility with this company, please? I hate to have to reinvent the wheel.

Thanks much.

Ohio State currently uses tophat, which we worked pretty closely with to ensure accessibility on the student interface side e.g. accessible matching / drag/drop for re-ordering, question / answers, etc.
That said, the product has added many new features over the past 2 years that I haven't spent much time looking at, so I can't vouch for changes that might have occurred since our work.

Good morning

Our instructors are looking for a replacement to TurningTechnologies. One of our deans contacted Ombea this week, which I've never heard of, so I tried to find accessibility information online. They only post advice for making PPTs more accessible. I've sent a message to the company for more information, but I'm wondering if anyone else has experience with this product or has recommendations for similar systems.

Thanks so much for your insight!
