Has anyone had an issue with screen readers not reading all the quiz answers?

Hi @BrittanyGreer,

I have not heard of any issues like that with quizzes (classic or new) in Canvas.  I suppose it's possible that something about a specific quiz answer was not entered by the quiz creator in an accessible way.  I would suggest reaching out to your teacher or your school/institution's Canvas team (usually in the eLearning / IT / Digital Education area) with details about what your screenreader had difficulty with to see if they could make any adjustments to the quiz.

I hope this helps a bit.  Good luck with your courses!

Hi Danny

New Quizzes runs through an external app, Classic Quizzes is internal to Canvas. Look and feel is very different. See 

If New Analytics is important to you (ie you want student interactions to be reported to the Canvas User Logs and New Analytisc) then stick with Classic Quizzes until Canvas resolve the issue of Canvas not returning the event data from New Quizzes.
