Mike (and anyone else): do you have more information written up about the tests you did that you'd be willing to share? Thanks--Jane

Thanks Hadi,

Your results confirm testing that we have done on Adobe Connect and Talking Communities. A couple of others that we have looked at: Go To Meeting, which has severe accessibility problems for keyboard users and screen reader users and Accessible Event by Serotek which looks very promising and can be run parallel to inaccessible services. When we looked at Accessible Event they had not yet implemented a voice chat feature but they had a really cool delivery mechanism for Microsoft Office Word, PPT and Excel documents. They were transmitted as accessible html. Our demo was driven from their location so I do not know what is required on the set up to support that feature.

I was not able to fix the problem with our local netfile system. Apparently
all the http pages are redirected to https port for out of U of I network
for which usernames/passwords are required. I posted the report at my
personal server at:


Hope we can post it in near future at the ICITA site.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
