One response I received: "FM systems can be ingrained into the overall classroom itself, but typically, I would say, they are facilitated individual between student and instructor where the instructor wears the mic that goes directly into the headphones of the student user. Depending on the student, ...

I appreciate this conversation. I'm going to pass this question on to a couple of people I know in the deaf-and-hard-of-hearing community, and ask for their insights. It sometimes takes a few days for them to get back with me. Warmest regards, Sharon Austin ------------------------------ Sharon Austin ...

Good morning, Would you be able to provide a few more details on how someone would be tabbing to an area that uses keyframes? Z-index can definitely affect it. It has in fact sometimes been used by design for accessibility purposes, but handled incorrectly, causes problems. https://dev.to/darren ...

Sorry, didn't answer the second part of the question. Consider breaking it out into individual steps, a screenshot of each, in this case. If you must use video, try slowing it down -- it might take it out of the threshold. ------------------------------ Sharon Austin Online Accessibility Specialist ...

Good afternoon Rob, I am unable to play back the animation, for some reason. I do know this; it's not only the flashing that can cause seizures. Blinking faster than 3 per second can also cause it, and a lot of whether it meets the criteria has a lot to do with both the size of the area "blinking" as ...

That is an absolutely outstanding point, Kristina. There's a lot of wisdom in what you are saying. That said, my "sense" is that this is a tool that works for her, whatever its flaws as assistive technology. The only way we would check it off as "okay" for her is to have her test it out for herself, ...

Good afternoon, We have a faculty member that has a need for voice recognition software to assist in grading. She was asking about Nuance, which would have been ideal, but they no longer make the product for Macs. We looked and were not able to find any suitable alternatives that work on a Mac. ...

I have to second Terrill's comment -- that was a great explanation! That one sentence alone, "Section 504 of the Rehab Act applies to recipients of federal funds, but enforcement authority doesn't fall to just one agency" helped more than you know. I was under the misconception that a singular agency ...

Thank you, @Leigh Mosley -- and all. That was my understanding too, is that MathPlayer is the only game in town as it applies to NVDA and MathML.

Good morning @Don Massie when you have a chance, would you kindly provide more information that MathPlayer was no longer being developed? That's the first I've heard of that, and would love to have more information on that, if you have time to provide it. ​ This page was copyrighted in 2022, and I'm ...

Good afternoon Maureen, It so happens that Blackboard has been doing considerable work lately with the Math Editor in it's Content Editor (WYSIWYG). The Math images are generated off MathML in its most recent advances, so it may be there, perhaps not as obvious though, as it was before. Much of what ...
