you talk, you need to have your camera enabled and screen curtin turned off.
You might also want to turn Do Not Disturbed Mode On.
I need to join an online meeting for work. It is hosted
using GoToMeeting. GoToMeeting’s customer service said they do not have any
information on using it with JAWS 2019. There was no information on
