[nabs-l] Jaws and Blackboard

It's not submitting assignments that I have difficulty with in Blackboard. 
In fact, the only thing I have had a lot of difficulty with is the chat 
feature.  The online chats that some profs do are not accessible to me, and 
I suspect, to some others as well.  Even with JAWS 10, this feature does not 
work.
