In general, Lockdown Browser can be accessed by many different types of assistive technology applications. It does, however, create unique challenges for students using speech-to-text software (e.g., Dragon Naturally Speaking) and some students who use screen reading and/or screen magnification software applications.

Supported Assistive Technology

  • Compatible screen readers include: JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver and Narrator.
  • Compatible Screen Magnification Applications include: Windows Magnifier, the Zoom feature built into iOS and the Zoom Feature built into the browser itself. Support for ZoomText is limited to enlarging text.

PLEASE NOTE: It is recommended that students launch these applications before starting the test. Additional Information regarding Lockdown Browser Accessibility.

If you encounter a problem accessing Lockdown Browser or would like for us to test your particular situation, please contact the ATI or Disability Services for assistance.
