Your experience sounds similar to
mine. One workaround I have found so far is just to dial
into the meeting by phone, instead of clicking the link to
join the WebEx in Outlook. I just wanted to see what others
on this list were going to say, before I proposed that
solution, as that solution has a drawback. Obviously, if you
are hosting a meeting and you need to be the one sharing
content via screen share to other users who can see that
content, you cannot over a phone call. Dialing into the
WebEx conference line over the phone is just for listening
Please keep your responses coming on
this question. I am interested in others’ experiences, who
are currently in a work environment, where WebEx is
required. Let us know what your workaround is.
My experience is that it isn't very accessible. If
info is shared NVDA(and I suspect other screen readers)
can't read it. I found it very difficult to find the mute
button for manipulating the microphone. I also found it
very hard to find the button for sharing the camera so it
was kind of hit and miss whether my camera view was shared
with others or not.
Most of what I did my wife was also there and she
ended up using the controls because it was so difficult
otherwise. I know this won't help in a business
environment but I give it just as an explanation.
I pray for your success in using it. Maybe they
have improved it since I used it last.

What is the most optimal configuration
for getting the most out of WebEx with NVDA? I am in a
business environment, where we have to use WebEx, for our
meetings. I am also faced with another dilemma that just
came up, with regards to WebEx. Starting this week, when
joining some meetings, I have been randomly asked for a
CAPTCHA, that does not present an audio challenge. In
2018, what is the best way to overcome these issues? I am
on Windows 10, with NVDA 2018.1.1.
