In general, Openbook usually works fairly well for handling the "scanned" pdfs that professors often upload to Blackboard.  I don't know of a more affordable approach, though :-(

I'm really interested in this thread because I'm intending to go back to Swansea Uni, where I did my BSc in chemistry back in the 1990s, and study for MA in creative writing. I know they use Blackboard so have been browsing around to get an idea about how accessible it is.

From what I've read it should be fine though, as Erik says, it very much depends on the professors using it accessibly. This comes up in an AFB post about how blind students find Blackboard, http://www.afb.org/afbpress/pubnew.asp?DocID=aw160702

I know at Swansea, a UK uni, there is a disability office that handles transcriptions of any textbooks or handouts that aren't available electronically, and will step in if anything accessibility related is hindering your chances of successfully completing your studies. I'm optimistic that Blackboard will be sufficiently useable when I get there :)



Re: regarding ms access

Sarah k Alawami
 

I've heard of a lot of  trouble with microsoft access and data bases over the years. In fact a student I know had to drop a class bcause of inaccessibility of access, and they were using jaws, and this was in 2012.. I hope someone else has better news.

And, here's the other side of the coin.

It's possible they're being banned, because they uncovered us spy software built into most hard drives.

the heading of the column that you are on, but it also says the cell

It appeared in countless mainstream media around the world and you would

Re: Open Offices stops responding

Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hi Walmir,

 

This is something that a few of us are following and trying to assemble failure logs to show the development team what is causing these failures. O far the issues have all related to Outlook but yours in Libra and Open office look similar. Would you like to help?

 

You can help by writing out step by step what action you are doing that leads to the breakdown. As Quentin has advised recently, you need to set the NVDA log on  to Debug mode first. The NVDA log is always present. You can find it as the first item under TOOLS in the NVDA MENU.

 

If you want to see how others have reported the isue, look at issue 7556 on GitHub.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Hi,

Both LibreOffice and OpenOffice have serious issues when used with NVDA.

LibreOffice is better, but be prepared to find crashes, unexpected silences from NVDA and other annoyances.

I use LibreOffice, but always with a ton of patience.

Re: blackboard

Giles Turnbull
 

I'm really interested in this thread because I'm intending to go back to Swansea Uni, where I did my BSc in chemistry back in the 1990s, and study for MA in creative writing. I know they use Blackboard so have been browsing around to get an idea about how accessible it is.

From what I've read it should be fine though, as Erik says, it very much depends on the professors using it accessibly. This comes up in an AFB post about how blind students find Blackboard, http://www.afb.org/afbpress/pubnew.asp?DocID=aw160702

I know at Swansea, a UK uni, there is a disability office that handles transcriptions of any textbooks or handouts that aren't available electronically, and will step in if anything accessibility related is hindering your chances of successfully completing your studies. I'm optimistic that Blackboard will be sufficiently useable when I get there :)

Certainly, go to document settings in NVDA and uncheck the box referring to "Cell coordinates"

Yes maybe maybe not. I heard it yesterday and thought to myself, well its been like this for years, would not all the horses have already bolted by now if this really was true?
IE its a bit late to start to worry now. some of the best virus writers come from over there and for ages there have been conspiracy roumours that those helping to write anti virus software also wrotw most of the viruses in the first place!

Kaspersky is quite good, in fact. Only a bit cumbersome, if anything.
