There are two different interfaces to Connect – the browser based version and the Connect Add-in (standalone) version

Some content, such as PowerPoint slide content and individual chat items require use of a screen reader ‘virtual cursor’, and screen readers do not have this support in the Add-in.

Users can determine which interface they prefer

Adobe Connect uses the Flash Player for the meeting user interface, so assistive technology support on Windows is provided via MSAA.

Shared PowerPoint slide content is available within the Share pod (browser-based version).
