Jessica,
Jaws works just fine with blackboard.
I'm using it currently, and I've had no problems with it.
Yes, sometimes it can be slow, but it works quite well wi
I've even taken exams using blackboard, and it works really really well.
So to say that freedom scientific won't support it is wrong.
Sincerely,
Karrie Kinstetterth it.

Rachel,
Unfortunately, Freedom Scientific will not ever support Blackboard. I 
know this from having a friend who was attending college a few years 
ago and he had even asked them about support for Blackboard. He worked 
for Freedom Scientific in tech support for a little over a year or so.

There is another screen reader on the market that might work with 
Blackboard it's called System Access. I haven't personally tested it 
myself so I don't know if it works or not.
