Hi, Wink.

Do you know if this was done within Bb’s Annotate tool used for inline grading of assignments native to Bb or in another tool, like Turnitin?

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [Athen] JAWS access in Blackboard

Hi all,

I have a student using JAWS and has reported to me they cannot read the sidebar comments I wrote on their written project submitted in BlackBoard.. Anyone know if this is a known glitch in BB or if in fact JAWS can access these instructor annotations, what is the key combo for the student to be able to access the feedback annotated notes?

Any advice or suggestions would be most helpful!

Thanks in advance.
