Apparently, from what parents have been saying on the lists, IXL is not
accessible to screen-readers. Blind students can read the problems but they
can't access the boxes to enter their answers.
If you can see enough to use the mouse to click on the answer boxes you
could probably use it. Otherwise, not accessible.

Subject: [blindkid] using IXL
I’m actually a legally blind young adult, not a parent. Anyways, I had
some questions and believe you all discussed this briefly before. I’m
volunteering for a summer camp. Part of the camp uses IXL for math and
science instruction. I know little about it other than its self paced and
designed to go along with skills students study in their schools; in this
case, first to fifth grade.
The kids do this IXL thing several days per week.
So the questions.
Is IXL accessible to jaws? the Braille Note? What does it teach and does it
give answers to questions?
I know some students use it for homework but in this case its to reinforce
I visited the website and cannot figure out its accessibility without
actually doing the problems for which I assume you have to have a code.
