moderated Re: Slack and JAWS?

For me, the iPhone app is more accessible and easier to use except for all the steps they make you take to open up a link.

For the desktop i use slack app which has a lot of built in shortcut keys.

have found is to hit enter on links that say opens in a new tab. I
don't know whether Jaws says that or Edge but that seems to help some.

Yes it’s accessible. The only thing I seem to have trouble with is opening links that gets sent through there. At least I’ve had trouble doing that with my iPhone. Does anyone know how to do that, open links in Slack?

I use it on a daily basis.
You may wanna do a search for slack shortcut keys to at least become a little familiar with it.

Hey folks,

I have a job interview coming up, but they use Slack as their platform of choice. It’s a text interview, which explains probably why MS Teams is out. How useable/accessible is Slack with JAWS? Anything I need to know before going in? If it helps, I’m on latest version. Thanks in advance.
