I've been researching this over the last month. It seems the most
accessible is elluminate, if you are also looking for whiteboard
capabilities. I would love to know if anyone else has suggestions.

Subject: [WebAIM] Accessible professional video conferencing
software,does it exist?

Hi. A bit off topic perhaps, but I just got a job
working online for a company in Brazil. They
want to get me involved in some video conference
calls. The great
thing, for me, is that they don't have any software in
mind, because
this is a new thing for them. I, the blind guy, get to
go look for
something that works for me. The IT staff at the Multi
we're working with won't allow Skype to be installed.
I figure if
there's a workable alternative that's a bit more
business oriented
and professional and secure, and also accessible to
Window Eyes,
someone here would know of it. Thanks for any
