I attended the a11ysummit conference held yesterday using Adobe Connect. Why
not write to http://a11ysummit.com/ and ask whether you can send the
participants a few questions? I understood at least one blind user attended,
and got the impression there were others with low vision. I also heard one
blind couldn't/wouldn't attend because of the sign-up procedure that was not
accessible to him. They had (very impressive) live CART captioning. Not a
basic part of Connect, but it shows it can easily be integrated. I think
that conference experience should provide good insights.
