While I can't say I've tested it exhaustively, the service, Blue
Jeans, is amazingly accessible (in comparison to other services I've
tried that are similar to it).

See links below my name.

I have been able to do most of the tasks (if not all) as a host. I've
recorded myself, and I've successfully shared my screen with a
sighted person, using IE 11 and JFW15. When JFW was in play (via
screen sharing), the service lagged a bit, but it wasn't intolerable to me.

I've also tried the IOS app., and it seems okay, but again, I can't
say I've tested it exhaustively.

As far as I know, yearly licenses for the enterprise are currently
the only option.

But I think you can have a free trial.

If others try this and find it suits them, I'd encourage you to
specifically mention the value of the accessibility work to you, so
they'll know it's a market-worthy selling point.

It may not be perfect, but I'm pretty excited about its potential.
