Hi Walker,

Go To Meeting is not at all accessible with JAWS 2019. The best accessible tool to do conference and share screens is Zoom. Since it is completely accessible you'll not face an issue using this.

Hi,

 

I need to join an online meeting for work. It is hosted using GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting’s customer service said they do not have any information on using it with JAWS 2019. There was no information on GoToMeeting’s website either. Have you ever used it? How well does it work?

 

Thank you,

Mike

Hello, As someone who has a smart t.v. running the roku software, I can tell you it does have a screen reader of sorts. It is limited, but as a totally blind user, it allows me to navigate the interface and watch movies.

What I've heard about the Roku is that you cannot enter the specific channel
number, you have to arrow to it, or as you mentioned, speak to it.

Yes, I am aware of your points. What I said is that Rocku does not read tts
as a screen reader. Rocku has one of it's remotes that does have speech
recognition, you tell it what channel to go to or to turn the television on
or off. You do not have a screen display where you can maneuver to hear the
text, as on your computer.

Speech recognition is talking to a device, like Amazon Echo.
TTS is text to speech, like Jaws and other screenreaders.
Phones use both TTS and speech recognition.

I think that smart watches will become the norm, and it may even become difficult to purchase a non-mechanical watch that is not a smart watch.
But basic watches are one of the few devices that aren't running an operating system these days.

Talking watches use a chip.
That is one example of a small device that cannot run an OS, of course, I'm not talking about smart watches, just the standard watch.
And, things set up without an OS will have much greater battery life.

I seriously doubt anyone uses embedded speech chips unless it is something too small to run an OS.
Otherwise, it typically uses software TTS via Android or Linux.

Speech recognition is talking to a device, like Amazon Echo.
TTS is text to speech, like Jaws and other screenreaders.
Phones use both TTS and speech recognition.

Chris, I haven't heard the software version, which others recommend, but I recall that it can be added to JAWS via the synthesizer and braille manager in utilities. If you find a source for it, I hope it works out for you. I'm glad another lister thinks well of Dectalk USB. I'll say only that it isn't much like the Dectalk Express, which I'm fortunate enough to own.

Question regarding tts type engines... Are these or do you know of any that are able to be embedded into products being designed?

Thank you,

The Access 32 is a 32bit software version of DeckTalk. The link I gave proposed to have it. I am happy wi9th my synth or I would look into it further.

Glenn, doing a proposal is exactly what I will be working on. I try to rely less on others as much as possible. In fact, how to improve accessibility is what I always have in mind for the reasons you mentioned: I do not want to have to bug others for stuff.

Michael,
Unfortunately this does not fix the problem.
Although you apparently have considerate coworkers, they will think of you as the employee who sometimes needs help, and the more we rely on others in situations like this, the less respect we are given in the workplace.
I recommend that you still do a proposal to your boss for a better solution, which might be best for everyone.

use something else when something is inaccessible, but you have the

GoToMeeting’s customer service said they do not have any information
