My take, nothing ventured nothing gained! You have nothing to lose by asking! Zoom is competitive if there is pricing and it’s just another tool to share screens and conference! In fact, greater functionality! It really should not matter to your supervisor as it is nominal fee!

In practice, how hard is it to get an employer to switch to something more accessible? I get answers a lot on mailing lists that just say use something else when something is inaccessible, but you have the problem of being in the minority if you are blind.
Absolutely agree with you. Zoom if your company will do it is by far the best. Beets WebEx as well.
my agency used to use Go To Meeting. But, they discovered that Zoom Meeting was about the same price and completely accessible on any operating system.
I'd encourage your boss to seriously consider Zoom Meeting.
All of the sighted employees like it better as well.
