I use it some and I have not had any trouble to speak of. It is somewhat
time consuming sometimes, since the pages are divided into sections, but I
have found at least with some pages I can navigate quicker with heading
navigation.

Subject: [nabs-l] Jaws and Blackboard

Hi everyone, I'm a teacher at the Oklahoma School for the Blind, and I teach
assistive technology devices to students.  I teach students from 2nd to 12th
grade and I need your help regarding my high school seniors.  More and more
college students are being required to access blackboard from the college
teachers.  I'm told that blackboard isn't very Jaws friendly.  I wanted to
get your opinion on blackboard's accessibility.  Is it accessible? If so,
what is the best method of accessing it?  Is there a set of keyboard
commands that I can download to teach my students?  Any help on accessing
blackboard would be greatly appreciated. 
 
Thank you!
Waiting for your help!
Robert.
