Note: For information about accessibility improvements for Adobe Connect 8, see More Accessible, Adobe Connect 8.
Adobe's overall goal is to provide improved accessibility for Connect 7.1. The first steps in this process is to provide keyboard navigation and hot keys so that the Meeting client can be used as much as possible without a mouse.
Menus at the top of the Meeting client (Application Bar menus) can now be navigated and executed entirely by keyboard.

Before SP1, every dialog box was keyboard navigable (ENTER does the default action, ESC cancels). However, there was often no visible indication what the default action was. In SP1there is a visible indication (a double border) on the default button, and text fields are navigable using TAB and Shift-TAB.
