I was thinking that J-Say and JAWS Tandem might work as a keyboard/Dragon supported solution.

Thanks Birkir, for the prompt response!

We already use Google hangouts extensively. I think in this case we are looking for something that would allow remote programmers (or anyone else, I suppose) to code into the same file, collaborating over keyboard, mouse, etc. input into one environment. So it's as if you have the co-editing functionality in Google Docs, but generalized to working over an entire computer.

I hadn't thought of Lync / Skype for business, that's a good one to investigate, thank you. We have active directory somewhere around, so we might have some support for Microsoft enterprise products. Thanks!
