[nabs-l] Jaws and Blackboard

I am a first-year student and many of my professors use blackboard as a
means to communicate with their students and to post assignments. I find it
is very accessible - just like any other webpage. So all the regular
Internet Explorer keystrokes apply. I use JAWS 9 it that is of any help.
Good luck,
Sarah Jevnikar

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!
