Sandy, and the others who have responded,

 

Thanks!

 

I have one overall question, and four general questions beyond that:

1)      Overall, given what you know about the accessibility of the product, would you recommend using Turnitin (or iThenticate)?

2)      Is the student interface accessible?

3)      If the student interface has some accessibility barriers, what accommodations does your institution provide (if any)?

4)      Is the instructor interface accessible?

5)      If the instructor interface has some accessibility barriers, what accommodations does your institution provide (if any)?

 

If you’re willing to go into more detail…

 

For the student interface, can a student with various assistive technology (screen reader, speech to text, etc.) successfully navigate the interface and perform basic functions:

·         login,

·         enroll in a class,

·         submit a paper,

·         create a new user profile,

·         set user preferences

·         Review originality reports:

o   match overview,

o   all sources,

o   match breakdown,

o   direct source comparison

 

For the instructor interface, can an instructor with various assistive technology (screen reader, speech to text, etc.) successfully navigate the interface and perform basic functions:

·         login,

·         navigate the instructor home page,

·         create a class,

·         create an assignment,

·         enroll students,

·         Review originality reports:

o   match overview,

o   all sources,

o   match breakdown,

o   direct source comparison

 

Are there functions (what’s listed above, or others that aren’t listed above) which cannot be performed by a someone using assistive technology? If so, what function and what assistive technology?

 

Thanks,

 

-Paul

Nice set of questions Paul J.

Last four Q’s nail primary proverbial accessible product procurement helpdesk call center.

Appreciated Keeps functionality on track and the if access barrier of any type is present then - next step/ solution kicks in.

Will see what I can find.
