Re: accessibility to GoToWebinar

Thomas N. Chan

I have not been using gotomeeting for a few months. Most of it, its rather useable with jaws.
Due to the my mobility, I use on my mobile device on the go
But thats as a guest, not a host.
I don't have any webina at this stage with gotomeeting, so i can't really test if the accessibility is still useable with current version of jaws or nvda.
but then again, i have been using it for a few years long before zoom came in, its rather ok.

All the message said that was sent to me was this, “Good morning, Ms. Albright,


We have received a response from our Accessibility Coordinator informing us that unfortunately, GoToWebinar does not work with JAWS.

Here is the site, I had to search it from the message:


It is the platform that I have to do training in.

We can't help you if you don't have any information about this webinar

client.  What is its web site?  What is its real name and how is it

spelled?  gotowebinar, is that it?
