Dr. Robinson here and I can tell you Schoology is fully accessible with jaws. Many times teachers will upload things in a viewer mode but just bring up your links and there’s always a download option at the very end of the links list. Remember save as PDF go to file explorer then applications key on pdf and open with Word and Word will translate that PDF to a perfect word document.
When you are in Schoology you’re going to use headings and link list to get everywhere

I haven't heard anything about Schoology except that it works like other e learning platforms like Canvas and D2L, of which I have become rather proficient in and have used extensively. These I mentioned are very accessible with screen readers on iPhone and Windows. So I'm wondering, is it also true for Schoology? Have any of you guys experienced Schoology before? If so I would like some feedback from a JAWS-user and VoiceOver-user standpoint as I am a teacher of students with visual impairments and I need to be able to teach it to my student when we start virtual classes next month.
