Have you requested a log in for a test run of the platform for use with screen reading software?
I had a student last spring who used it on Mac and I had to remediate the pdfs. We found that the best screen reader was ChromeVox but it still did not allow for complete independence. He did not complete the semester, so I would not be able to give more information. I would strongly suggest working with the publisher to receive a test account so that you can test it.

We have a student who is Blind registered for a fully online Spanish course that uses Cengage MindTap for the textbook, Plazas 5th ed. I have been talking to the publisher and have received their most recent VPAT (done by a 3rd party) and it look pretty good but I'm concerned about a few areas where things are "partially supported." Have any of you had any experience using this text and accompanying homework platform? I am going to be meeting with the faculty member to determine if it's even a possibility to use it this quarter and more information/experience would be super helpful.

Wisdom much appreciated!!

Thank you!
