Push-to-talk and the improved accessibility of eyeson

The latest eyeson update brings some small but valuable features for your everyday online meeting: full compatibility to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and the push-to-talk feature.

Improved Accessibility

Easy to use for everyone is one of our main focuses. Using eyeson is easy because you do not need to install any client, you can connect to a meeting with every device supported by a modern browser and as a guest, you only have to click on a link you get from your host.

The user interface is centred on the main task eyeson provides: video meeting. 

To secure our promise to be the easiest video conferencing provider, we improved the accessibility and made it fully WCAG compatible. 

ARIA for Screen Reading Technology

The latest eyeson update also includes better support for WAI-ARIA to make video meetings more accessible to a diverse range of users, including those who use assistive technologies such as screen readers to offer a seamless user experience.


A small but very handy feature: if your microphone is muted just press and hold "m" to talk.

You speak when it is your turn, everyone else listens, once you finish someone else can take over and have the floor. This gives each employee a voice no matter if you are the manager, intern, or executive.
