Ditto. The initial overview also required that I download the HTML file and
view it offline.

Many thanks, Hadi. However, when I tried to click on either link listed
under "Side by Side Comparison," I was prompted for a username and password.
Is there another way to get to these files?

Hello,

As promised here's the result of our accessibility evaluation of four Web
Conferencing Tools: Adobe Connect, Elluninate, Saba Centra, and Talking
Communities.

ncing_tools.html

As you will see in the Update section of the page, among other providers
Elluminate is also intensifying their efforts to improve the accessibility
of their product. They are inviting interested individuals to join this
effort. If you are interested in working with collaboratively with them and
contribute to accessibility of Elluminate, please drop me an e-mail at
<EMAIL REMOVED> (not to the list) and I will provide you the instruction
how to join the meeting.
The next meeting will be on December 2nd at 2:00 PM EST.

If you are also interested to join the Talking Communities Accessibility
Interest Group, please go to
http://collaborate.athenpro.org/group/tc/

I am positive that Adobe will soon start such initiative to bring people
with disabilities on board to help them to make their product more
accessible to their users. They are currently discussing it internally.

Thanks,
Hadi
