Hi - one of our users is blind, and uses a screen reader in conjunction with an XMPP client to interact with our other users. I understand that XMPP support within HipChat is becoming deprecated in the short-medium term. Does anyone have any suggestions for good ways for this user to interact with HipChat using other screen-reader friendly clients?
At the moment, we don't have any short term plans to shutdown XMPP via 5222. If we do, we will make sure we have a recommendation on which third party clients to uses with XMPP over BOSH. Also be sure we will communicate it well in advance.
The reason why we can't give a recommendation now is that we still didn't spend enough time testing the third party clients.
Perhaps I should clarify what I meant I am working from this statement with regards to HipChat server:
Whilst it seems that direct XMPP access is being deprecated, it looks like XMPP over BOSH is still supported - however I guess I am trying to understand what clients other HipChat customers may be using in this scenario for users that require screen readers to interact with their colleagues.
