when you run this, you'll get a choice of different components to install
(you only choose one of them).  the one you should choose is the one which
says it's the client for accessibility.

http://bearware.compytech.net/TeamTalk_v4.0_Setup.exe 

it's free.

Ok, where do I go to check this talk thing out and what does it cost if any
thing? How well is it accessible with Jaws? Is it Blind user friendly?

Yes, exactly Lynn, the two can compliment each other this way.

I hope people will start to consider things they know something about, that
others may be interested in, and eventually post an offer on TABI to lead  a
conference on that subject if anyone was interested.

I see the team talk working in conjunction with the TABI list. We would post
to the list a topic of discussion and the time to meet. if you had time to
meet that would be great.
