I've had success with Zoom and WebEx using a screen reader. I haven't tried the others you listed in years...

Subject: [WebAIM] Accessible webinar/video conferencing software

I know this has been asked before, and I've looked through the list archives, but the most recent thread I found was in 2016, and things have changed so much since then.

We're reviewing our own platform and software for online live video conferences. Any thoughts about accessibility in any of the major brand-named options, such as:

* Zoom

* Zoom Professional

* WebEx

* Go To Meeting (Log me In)

* ZoHo Meeting

* BlueJeans

* Other?
