Testing with Honorlock for a Student who Uses a Text or Screen Reader

For a text or screen reader to work, Browser Guard will need to be disabled for the exam.  You may complete one of the two options listed below:

  • Create a duplicated exam and post it to the one student. This will allow you to disable Browser Guard for the one student in the event that you would like to keep it enabled for the remainder of the class. 
  • List the name of the accommodated student within the Proctoring Guidelines of the exam and the Honorlock support team will be able to disable it for the student as needed.
