moin moin Eric,

Thanks for the feedback on the form! I will file a bug report on the forms
tool. I got feedback elsewhere that the contrast ratio on the colors used
for text and background isn't quite good enough. I need to file a bug
report on that as well.

The presenter covers NVDA in her presentation after mentioning problems
with JAWS. I let her know about the licensing issues you mentioned on the
list years ago.

As I recall, JAWS limited the number of times it could be installed on
a license and you hit the limit due to changing out hardware a couple
times. She was unaware of this part of the JAWS licensing. She looked at
the licensing that day to figure out the current state of things and plans
to update her presentation with the new information.

Thank you for letting us know about some of the challenges you've had
over the years. In this particular case, it's helping someone who speaks
internationally have better content and hopefully helping improve

Do you happen to have experience with using either BigBlueButton or jitsi?
If so, are either of them accessible for you?
