    If you take online classes or have a professional job with off-site meettings, your employer or professor will use an online conferencing system. After discovering how accessible it is, the chancelors office for the California community colleges set up free Pro accounts for all California community college employees to use when working with colleagues and our students. If your employer or school is using a less accessible conferencing system, do encourage them to adopt zoom, and encourage your clients and friends who use JAWS to take this training. We are so lucky to have JAWS trainings hosted now in Zoom, a platform that is just as popular and useful for able-bodied folk as it is for us.
