What about "Accessible Event" by SeroTek?


It has been some time since I used it but when I did, it seemed to work well using a screen reader--and the presentation materials in the browser window seemed accessible. I gather it can integrate with other online conferencing products, but I don't know much more about it other than from the few times I did use it.

LucidMeetings is really great. Unfortunately it isn't really
conducive to the Webinar/ presentation type paradigm, but rather
really excels at actual meetings, whereas something like GoToMeeting
fits a more hybrid model
