Accessibility Issues for Conferencing Systems


From: Elizabeth J. Pyatt

Lately our university is relying on conferencing systems including
Adobe Connect and eLluminate.

Are there any resources on accessibility issues ones needs to
consider? I see that Adobe Connect has a plugin for real-time
captioning, but I'm curious about other issues.

Can a screen reader access the tools? Any issues for those with
learning disabilities? motion impairements? Low Vision? Any other

Any information appreciated,
