How can a user of screen reading software review entries in the CANVAS Gradebook?

A faculty member is using JAWS and would like to be able to review the entries in the Gradebook. 

 

The faculty member is able to create assignments and use SpeedGrader to enter the grades with JAWS.  However, it appears that the Gradebook is not organized as tables.  This means that the table reading and navigation commands cannot be used. 

 

When attempting to navigate through the Gradebook with JAWS, it appears that the Gradebook is organized in two separate structures similar to tables.  The first area contains the student names and student IDs.  The second area of the Gradebook contains the assignments, scores, and totals.

 

Using the Individual View of the Gradebook, it appears there is an accessible way to review the grades for an individual student.  However, the faculty member would like to be able to review the grades for an individual assignment in a way that is more efficient than reviewing the individual scores with SpeedGrader.  While there is the option to export the grades to a CSV file, this requires proficiency with Excel and exporting the grades frequently.  There is also the option to review the Grading History.  However, if the grading for an individual assignment takes place on multiple dates, the grades for the assignment are not organized into a single table.

 

Has anyone else come across this issue with the Gradebook?  Can anyone suggest an accessible option for reviewing the scores entered for a single assignment similar to the information available in the Gradebook?
