Subject: Re: [WebAIM] Zoom Video Conferencing and Webinar Accessibility


I looked at it briefly for a group at work a year or so ago. At that time, there were some issues that were significant enough that we denied its use outside of a named group of people. My group or I sent them a note with our concerns, since we aren't actively seeking use of it, we didn't follow up really. They could have made improvements between then and now, but haven't looked.
