converse js setup

Hello,
 
 I am totally blind and use a screen reading program Jaws to use my computer.
 
 The company that I work for has decided that the company will start using
the Openfire server and the Spark xmpp client for internal messaging 
needs.
 
 My screen reader will not work at all with the Spark client.
 
 I am hoping that since ConverseJS is browser based that it might work 
with my screen reader.
 
 Please tell me where I may find a setup and user guide, so I can try to 
get Converse working with my screen reader.
 
Thanks for all of your help,
 
TJ

Hello TJ

If the XMPP server you will be connecting to is publicly available, then you
can simply use the website https://conversejs.org

The website contains a hosted version of converse.js which is available for
use for free.

You can also download the latest version of converse.js, open the index.html
file in your browser and use it like that. It's the same file that is hosted on
the live website.

Here is the link to the releases page:
https://github.com/jcbrand/converse.js/releases

The advantage of using a locally downloaded copy of converse.js is that you can
modify the index.html file to change the configuration settings of converse.js.

On the other hand, if your company's XMPP server is not publicaly available,
then you'll also need to install your own BOSH server, which will act as the
proxy or intermediary between converse.js in your browser which speaks HTTP
and the XMPP server which speaks XMPP.

There is no user guide or end-user documentation. It's something I'd like to
add sooner rather than later, but my time is limited.

The setup and developer documentation is available at the link below:
https://conversejs.org/docs/html/index.html

Regards
JC

Hi JC,

Thanks for such a quick response.


I am not sure if the Workshop's server is public or not.

I will ask them straight away.

Thanks for the other ideas as well.

I am looking forward to getting  converse js working.

Again thanks for the help,

TJ
