A consideration for any webcam-based proctoring system --

Subject: Re: [Athen] Proctorio

We are using it here. A student who is blind will not be able to use it because it tracks eye movement and would flag them as looking away from the screen. We are  trying a ruthrough with Zoom on Monday, which should suffice the instructor since we can see the student and verify he didn't cheat.

Always have think out side the box and work arounds.

Our institution is seeking info on Proctorio from an accessibility standpoint (e.g., issues to be aware of and need to post to our institution, etc.)

Does anyone using Proctorio have user experiences they can share? Are there still accessibility issues that we need to be aware of to provide accommodations or workarounds, etc.? Does it still have its own built-in screen reader (if I understood that correctly)?

Thanks in advance for any information provided, as I know this is a hectic time for everyone.
