It is in a way, but very much geared towards large Enterprise.

Ron, for things like that may I suggest a quick Google search for exactly what you asked, in this case I did a search for "What is Webex" and here is the first Google result easily found by using the heading level 2 quick nav key:


Webex by Cisco is the leading enterprise solution for video conferencing, online meetings, screen share, and webinars. Web conferencing, cloud calling...


Of course this is a link so you can click on it to read more, but this basically summarizes what it is and does. And please don't get me wrong, I am not saying you shouldn't ask, but for simple queries like this asking Google gives you an instant answer and often a better one and if it is something you end up wanting to know more about then all you have to do is click and read.


And just as another tip, if you have a Google Home speaker or a smartphone with the Google Assistant you could even ask verbally. Often the answer then is pulled from Wikipedia and if you don't have such a device, instead of doing a Google search for "What is Webex" search for "What is Webex on Wikipedia". In this case here is the answer you would have received as the so-called "Featured snippet from the web which often is the first result above the main results:

It is so super easy to find information about factual things like a particular product, company or in particular about geographical facts like the size or population of a certain country, a certain historical event and so on.

It can be used on a computer, but I have struggled with it for the time or two I have tried.  I ended up having my sister fix things via TeamViewer.  Then we had to close TeamViewer since it apparently was a cause of another issue.

Greetings everyone,


I will be playing with this tonight, but was wondering if anyone has been successful at using Webex with JAWS. Some of the parts seem accessible, from what I have begun noticing, while others (like scheduling meetings) not so much.

I’m looking for JAWS commands. What I wasn’t sure about was whether this was more of a computer or a phone app. I would imagine it can be used on both devices.

I literally just downloaded it a few minutes ago, as I will need to use it for some things in a few days and want to become familiar with it.

If you have any suggestions or thoughts on the app, I’d be interested in communicating.

Thank you.
