  • Blackboard strives to make all its products as accessible as possible. JAWS for Windows 11 and 12 were used during accessibility testing of Service Pack 6
  • Sun Java™ Runtime Environment 5 (JRE™ 5) is no longer supported.  It may continue to work but the latest version of Java 6 is the recommended for all users.
  • Not supported: Internet Explorer 7; Firefox 3.5
  • Internet Explorer 8 and Internet Explorer 9 are only supported in Standards Mode. Some known issues can be resolved by using Compatibility Mode (emulates IE7 behavior).
  • Both Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox have moved to a rapid release cycle.  At the time of testing, Chrome 13.0 and Firefox 7.0 were the latest available versions.  Since then, new stable versions have been released and widely adopted.  Blackboard is supporting all newer stable versions of Chrome and Firefox.
