Expresstalk from nch is accessible.
The issue I had with it was the lag. I couldn't ever get it to work
acceptably, the lag was quite bad.
The product is very accessible though.
Tried it with two voip services.

Hello list,

I’m in search of an accessible VOIP desktop client with Jaws as it is
the screen reader I’m using.

I’m currently using Skype and a Skype telephone number. My subscription
comes due in a few weeks and before I renew for another year, I wanted
to see if there was perhaps another option out there that is equal to or
more accessible than skype. I know there’s Vonage and I guess MagicJack
and grasshopper, but I’m also looking for something that I can use to
take and receive calls on a computer with all the regular functions like
call waiting, forwarding, voicemail, etc.

I’m a big time Google Voice user, but the one drawback is that there’s
no real way to easily answer/make calls from the computer with
GV/Hangouts and Jaws. I currently have my GV business line forward to
my Skype number where I can then manage incoming/outgoing calls.

Free or Paid is fine. I’m just looking for something that is reliable
and accessible.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
