Hi Lori,
Perhaps you could clarify a bit… is it voice input or voice navigation that is being sought?
Much of how accessible the Canvas platform is depends on the implementation by your university. I was able to input voice text when working in Canvas a couple years ago, but did not attempt navigating. I would have tried using mousegrid to do so.
Best regards,

Does anyone know about this issue with Dragon Naturally Speaking in Canvas? I found that it is probably still not accessible based on using Canvas with speech recognition software<https://community.canvaslms.com/t5/Accessibility/Using-Canvas-with-speech-recognition-software/td-p/127378>. The last comment was in 2020.

Thank you,
