Please post on the list. I'm also a blind teacher interested in grading
software and their relative accessibility.

Subject: [nobe-l] Easy IEP and Skyward

Hi everyone,
I am a blind braille teacher working in Tennessee. The school that I work at
currently uses two programs. One program is Easy IEP which is a
computer-based IEP management program. I have tried using this program with
both JAWS and voice over and it is completely inaccessible.

The second program we are using is called Skyward. It is a program for
grading, keeping attendance, and managing student schedules. I have yet to
try it with voiceover on a Mac however, it is somewhat accessible with JAWS.
Skyward also has an app for I devices which is accessible but somewhat
limited in comparison to the desktop version.

I was wondering if there were any blind TVi's or other blind educators who
have had experience with these programs. I am trying to collect data about
people's experiences with these programs and their accessibility. If you use
easy IEP, what was your experience like? Are there any IEP management
programs that are accessible using a screen reader? If you have used
skyward, what were your excess ability challenges? What advice do you have
to recommend in regard to this product?

Please feel free to email me off list with your responses. I appreciate any
help that you can offer.
