I'm not David but perhaps he meant to write

Take good care.

I regularly use both Teams as well as Slack for work. Both are accessible but, of the two, Teams is most definitely way ahead of Slack when it comes to screen reader support. Teams does have its quirks and does need some improvement but it's overall quite usable. If you're interested I run two lists, one for users of Teams and another for users of Slack. At the moment they are very low traffic. Feel free to subscribe to both or one of them as your needs dictate and as your time allows. I would respectfully ask that any questions related to these programs not be sent to me privately as I may not have the time to respond in a timely manner and I am not an expert in all aspects of these programs.

Zoom is a web conference application for meetings. The company isZoom.2. Teams is a Microsoft application for collaboration. I know it'sused within organizations for meetings and also general collaboration for ongoing projects. I suspect it's Microsoft's version of Zoom, with additional features, but I'm not fully sure.3. Google offers Hangouts, which allows for video meetings. I juststarted using this and it seems more like a way to have a conversation with multiple people. I don't think of it as a tool businesses would use to present a slideshow, but I'm still new. Maybe the Meet.Google.com thing you are talking about is more for that. Hangouts and the link you shared are both associated with Google, not Microsoft or Zoom. When I go to the link you sent, it appears that Google Meet is Google's version of Zoom. I haven't seen any talk on this list about this particular Google product, but others definitely talk about Google docs, Chrome, Hangouts and such, so I'm optimistic that Google Meet would be accessible. If you run into trouble with it and if you have a smart phone, get the Be My Eyes app and, from within that app, you can get a direct link to someone in Google Accessibility for help getting oriented to the new tool.We all empathize. This is a crazy learning curve we are all on to adjustto working remotely.Robin Teams is Microsoft's collaboration program.

I know this is different from Zoom, but is it also different fromTeams? Are there others on the list using Google Meets? Is Hangouts the same as any of these? Please clarify and give me some good places to learn how to use Google Meets.Many thanks.
