Respondus LockDown Browser™ is a custom browser that locks down the testing environment within Blackboard. When using Respondus LockDown Browser to take a test, you will be unable to print, copy, go to another URL, or access other applications. When an assessment is started, students are locked into it until they submit it for grading.

Instructions for Students:

Respondus has more information on their website on how to use JAWS with LockDown Browser, but please be aware that the instructor must enable a setting that permits specific students to use a screen reader application with LockDown Browser
