Dear all,
Blackboard is user friendly to the blind. I worked for my college's
blackboard staff for almost two semesters and it is good. The only
part you may have problems is with the Discussion Board. However, I
don't know exactly know what version my school is running but I like
how Jaws navigates around the site.
Sincerely,
Nathan Clark
