Hey Canvas,

I work with the Education Department, we use Canvas as our student work platform. I work with students have are visually impaired. we have currently ran into issues where Canvas isn't supporting screen readers, such as NVDA, Does canvas have a preferred screen reader that they support? or is there something we're doing wrong when it comes to Canvas and screen readers.

Hi  @nathan_stingle ...

There is something called the Immersive Reader from Microsoft that is available in Canvas, but I would encourage you to read through the information in these Guides (especially the information at the top in the blue boxes):

Currently, this is only available on "Pages" within Canvas courses.  It is not available on other areas of a course such as "Assignments", "Discussions", "Quizzes", etc.

I hope this info will be helpful to you, Nathan.  Sing out if you have any other questions.  Stay safe, be well.
