I use NVDA and JAWS, and have not had any success using Go To Meeting with
either one! When I access a meeting link, the app opens, but I cannot
navigate any part of the window. In fact, I always have to ask a student
worker to click to join meeting with computer audio, because I can't access

I wanted to check here if other screen readers have experienced this and if
there are any workarounds. I think that if Go To Meeting is unwilling to
fix their software (and it's been unusable like this for years) we need to
start convincing vendors (I'm in a Texthelp webinar currently) to stop
using it, and to use something like Zoom or Google Meets.
