Very valid point.
I think all of them support it apart from team speak. Though now
that I think about it it might support it as well.

I think that one important feature is
to have file transferring available.
I'm really not sure why everyone is hating on skype. Stereo
audio is great and all in recordings. When talking, it's just
a frustrating distraction. I just want to talk.
Team talk is nice, but who in the sighted world uses it?
Nobody that I know of, so that's a serious limitation for me.
Think skype is bad for screen readers? Try out discord. Tons
of unlabeled buttons.
Speaking of audio issues. Team talk has horrific issues if
one is using speakers and soundcard does not support echo
cancelation or noise suppression, both of which make the audio
quality deteriorate so bad you might as well use another
service and save your bandwidth, too. For talking, skype
handles it wonderfully in comparison and also does a ton
better if your internet isn't the greatest.
It is still the king of multi platform, mainstream, and
screen reader accessible voice communication. Google is kind
of there but I know very few who use it. Team speak is really
nice too, supports stereo audio and blows the doors off team
talk every which way. I know a few people who use it, but not
many. I think whatsapp also supports voice calling. I have
never tried it before but would be curious if you could be in
calls on the web.
Just my thoughts, for what it's worth.

The audio quality is crap. TeamTalk
is better for what you want to do.

I'm not exactly a fan of the new
version of skype. If I can figure
out how to invite multiple people to a skype call, that
great. However, I can use this new version of skype ok.
don't like it as well as 7.4, but I can use it.
