OK, so that's what Elluminate says about their product, but does this
mean their whiteboard is fully accessible to screen reader and
keyboard users? My experience is that there is often a very wide gap
between accessibility statements and actual accessibility. I ask,
because if they have figured a way to make whiteboards (or chats or
web tours or streamed presentations) accessible, I'd love to see how
they've done it.
