Hi. 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.

Here are the email addresses for subscribing.


For users of Slack:

blind-slackers+subscribe@groups.io


For Users of Teams

teams-access+groups.io

1. Zoom is a web conference application for meetings. The
company is
Zoom.
2. Teams is a Microsoft application for collaboration. I know
it's
used 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 just
started 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
adjust
to working remotely.

Teams is Microsoft's collaboration program.

Good morning all,

I'm feeling overwhelmed by all the on-line things that are now being used.
My employer is using Meet.google.com for meetings and collaboration. 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.

Marilyn

Hi Sameer,

I'm hardly using Teams for three weeks now on a laptop running
Windows 10
with jaws 2020 latest update because this is my employer's recommended
tool for remote working.
This app is globally accessible except for defining a "contact group"
in
the "Chat" tab, "Contacts" subtab.
In order to learn how to use it, I started from this web page:

I did not install any Jaws script yet but if there are some, I'd also
like
to know.
Hope this helps. Have a nice day. Chris D

Dear List Friends,

Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install
additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install
additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.
Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be
used
with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a
Windows 10 machine.
Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Regards
Mr. Sameer Latey
