Hi Kay,

Here is a similar question and answer I posted a while ago. It focuses on graphic deliverables, but some of the tools may work for what you want:

QUESTION: Looking for a better way for clients to review and comment on our work online

Im envisioning a chat tool that would allow me to do the following:
 Display a Web page, graphic, or Flash animation on the Web.
 Allow a client to visually highlight part of it.
 Create a chat thread associated with the highlighted area.
 Support multiple chat threads for different highlighted areas.
 Spellcheck chat contents.
 Archive the chat thread.
Does anyone know of such a tool? It seems that Adobe CS4 has something built in or there maybe something in an application lifecycle management (ALM) tool like Rational Jazz. 

ANSWERS: I found some tools that do exactly what I want. Front runners are:

proofHQ (,
Highly polished, works with or without Basecamp

ConceptShare (,
Highly polished, works with or without Basecamp, Flash based

Cozimo (,
Promising but Ill need to dig deeper to see if it has all of what I need

These are similar but seem to be missing core requirements:
Seems to only support static files.
Seems not have chat support, only notes.
More for conferencing. Doesnt seem to support chat associated with a comment
Cannot really figure out if this is suitable without speaking to one of their sales reps.
