Black Board is very accessible. I prefer canvas as it is easier to
navigate but Black Board works nicely. I used it in 2007-2008 and it
was a mess. It is nice to see it has improved.

BITS, the special interest affiliate of the American Council of the Blind
for technology enthusiasts will be conducting a presentation covering the
accessibility of Blackboard. As this presentation is open to the public I
will paste the announcement below.

From Earlene Hughes, President of BITS ..

Hello all,

I am sending this announcement to you on behalf of Tim Cumings Presentations
committee Chair.

This presentation is open to the public. We will be using the BITS Chat
meeting for this presentation.

I am pleased to announce the BITS Presentation: Accessible Navigating With
Blackboard, hosted by Betsey Doane.

Tuesday, September 8 2020:

Time: 08:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)

From Betsey Doane:

"Blackboard is a learning management system used in online courses all over
the country, mostly in colleges. This presentation will demonstrate the
various features of Blackboard and show how to efficiently navigate the
large screens. If there is interest, I will include how mathematical
content is rendered and show you how easy it is to present content to both
blind and sighted users alike in this software."

The BITS chat will convene following a short break.
