In my recent exam sandbox blog, many of you left comments asking if assistive technologies (ATs) can be used on our online exams. Great news! Our online certification exams are now compatible with multiple different assistive technologies! Until recently, the use of ATs was limited only to test center deliveries because ATs were not compatible with the secure browser required to deliver online exams. This is NO LONGER true! In fact, you have more options now if you want to use ATs with online exams than you do in test centers. I'll be sharing more information in blog post later in March, but in the meantime, if you want to use an AT during an exam, request an accommodation to start the process.
