Quite a number of our association members are blind or visually impaired and use screen readers such as JAWS when they are using computers. The screen reader actually reads commands out loud so the user can make selections. They report difficulty in finding radio buttons to opt for the telephone number as an alternative, and they are not able to find the question box easily, raise their hand, etc.
Is Citrix working to correct this problem? If so, when might we expect a solution? We have some angry people.
I am also interested in seeing this functionality improved. I use gotowebinar for conducting meetings, and as a blind person, am not able to use anything in the features section--I have to get someone to run the logistics as a result and cost myself money. Please assist.
I agree, John. We are trying another platform for an upcoming event which does not have the same functionality as GoToWebinar/Meeting but we must do so to accommodate our users who are visually impaired for this event.
Hey goToMeeting Support, I have found ways to get access to some of the admin box when hosting meetings. I can probably help your tech support figure out how to address this. Please feel free to call me at 614-519-3026 or email me at jwg@SGEndeavors.com.
Hi Linda, Unfortunately it's not. I spoke with someone recently and they still have no plans to address the accessibility problems. But we will continue to ask while we look at other online webinar platforms that are more compatible with screenreaders.
Curious if any progress has been made on this issue? I'm a blind screen reader user also unable to get anywhere within the G2M interface. To be fair, the iPhone app looks relatively accessible, however, I can't (and don't) always want to do everything from my iPhone. Would appreciate any thoughts.
