I’ll just say that despite the existence of userscripts to improve things, Whova was a major disappointment in a recent conference setting. Multiple attendees confided with me that its quirky user interface (possibly due to how the conference organizers set it up) exacerbated cognitive issues that rarely affected them on a daily basis. And this was a technology-focused conference.

Hi, all!

Some folks in our institution are interested in utilizing a virtual event platform software for upcoming events. We have looked at Remo<https://tracking.vocus.io/link?id=a5f8cdd3-a188-4162-8c91-2d5b0ee3a5ea&url=https%3A%2F%2Fremo.co%2F%3Fgclid%3DCjwKCAjwgZuDBhBTEiwAXNofRIr9qqwSNTavkok5wWD8u63nS5fXG4_npF8_5lVdyNOmUmaGE9GnBBoCLJsQAvD_BwE>, but this does not work well with NVDA/JAWS. Has anyone had experiences with similar software that is more accessible that may meet our needs?

Thank you,
