moderated Re: is chat function in Webex accessible?

Abraham Sweiss

I thought it opened in the app, but could be wrong.

Before using the app, I always had trouble logging into a webex session.

Once I started using the app, it was easier for me to log into webex.

Everytime someone enters in a comment to the chat, jaws reads it out, only issue is when the chat is rather active.jaws gets noisey.


I use short cut keys to navigate




have some good information.


Thanks, Abraham

I am trying to figure out the desktop app.  If I open the app, I see   a list of my meetings, a button to start or create a new meeting and some unlabeled buttons.  From your experience, does a meeting load in the app if you launch it from a meeting in your list?  I’m trying to understand if it’s launching a browser window or a special meeting window that is in the app.  I launched a meeting from the list yesterday and did not feel like the experience of navigating was that different, so I’m wondering if it really loaded in the app.  I’ll try logging into a couple additional meetings today.

I am saying it is more accessible than the browser.

I would suggest using the desktop app.

The browser tends to be problematic with regards to accessibility.

Anyone figured out how to use chat in Webex?  JAWS will read some of the chats as they come in, but I cannot figure out how to get to that area and/or type a message.  I’m using Google Chrome to access meetings and JAWS 2020.
