I think all employers are always worried that a minority or disabled employee may file a complaint on such things, so even though you might not ever do such a thing, I think going to the boss and offering a better solution would give them reason to switch.
And your boss should let "go to meeting" know that they switched for reasons of lack of accessibility.
That is the sort of information that will cause software creators to consider accessibility from the start.

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.

If the Administrator of the conference has enabled you to join the meeting via a regular phone or the app on an iDevice, your should be able to join the conference using the meeting ID.


Using the app on an iPhone is very accessible. You will be able to see who has join the meeting and if they want to all see you when you talk, you need to have your camera enabled and screen curtin turned off. You might also want to turn Do Not Disturbed Mode On.

I need to join an online meeting for work. It is hosted using GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting’s customer service said they do not have any information on using it with JAWS 2019. There was no information on GoToMeeting’s website either. Have you ever used it? How well does it work?
