I have to say that for me Zoom is best.
There are shortcut keys to go to the chat and other areas of the application.
Sound quality is good and easy to record content.
It has a lot of good features.

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?
