Well, I have a hybrid class for english; that means half online work and half in class meetings.
What exactly is google docs and how does it work?
Do you attach documents to it or something?
I realize it is inaccessible to us. How do you get around that? Do you write assignments in word and/or email?
I ask because I encountered google docs in our online class when we were supposed to comment on introductions for articles.
Obviously, I couldn’t read the comments. Jaws only read names of classmates, not text.
So I’ll have to have a sighted reader and hand in my comments on paper.
And most importantly, has either consumer advocacy group done anything about this lack of accessibility?
What did you do if your class used this platform for writing?
I fail to see how blind students take online classes with so much inaccesssibility.
PDFS, flash based content, multi media presentations and um now google docs are just a few accessibility challenges in the online class experience.
