[Athen] Elluminate - accessibile or not?

We have Eluminate on this campus and it is getting very little use. It
is not completely accessible, unfortunately, in my experience. I had
trouble with JAWS trying to navigate the myriad of boxes within the
window of the program, and there is a live chat function, posting
windows, you name it. To a sighted person, the layout is pretty
confusing, much less to someone trying to use a screen reader.

Good morning all!

Is anyone familiar with the product called Elluminate Learning Suite?
Our institution is considering its use as a campus-wide solution for web
conferencing and possibly more uses as well. It will be under review
over the next few week, and I want to be ready with any questions
related to accessibility.

I would greatly appreciate any wisdom or helpful hints anyone has
related to Elluminate!!
