I've used that application in a previous life and it can be navigated with a screen reader. There are a few small challenges.

While it is probably overkill for what you want, we use Microsoft LYNC here, and I have found the chat to be accessible.

Subject: [WebAIM] accessible third-party commercial online chat options

Greetings, WebAIM:

Does anyone have recommendations for accessible third-party commercially available online chat services/clients?

I'm not looking to "build our own," such as might be possible via this:

http://whatsock.com/modules/accessible_chat_dialog_module/demo.htm


and the style guide:
https://github.com/accdc/tsg

Rather, I'm looking for a third-party vendor who's committed to accessibility of online chat, especially on the front end, but preferably on both the front and back end.

If you've used online chat services that work well, but you don't know who the vendor is, I'd be interested in that input, too, as it could facilitate my doing further research.

Thanks in advance.

Jennifer
