[NFB-Talk] Accessible Event platform

I've found GoogleMeet to be very good, but it does not have the recording
feature if you are needing that.

Freeconferencecall.com has free video conferencing, love it on the phone,
but not sure about the app.

Duo is great for small conferences and I've found very accessible, and is
also cross-platform, unlike FaceTime.

I've never tried it, but can one do a group video chat on Messenger?  I've
only done it singly.

Our transit committees use Go-To-Meeting, and it doesn't have all the
functionality for members that Zoom does.

Hi folks,

I was talking to a friend and former boss last night; she is now a full-time
event planner. She is trying to persuade her boss to consider virtual event
platforms not for their external appearances, but for their accessibility
first. Other than Zoom, do you have any accessible platform recommendations?
Ideally, a platform should be interactive, like Zoom with the reactions and
chat. Thanks.
