moderated Re: Using Microsoft Teams with JAWS + additional questions


Marilyn Bland <tinkerbelltx@...>
 

Good morning all,

 

I’m feeling overwhelmed by all the on-line things that are now being used. My employer is using Meet.google.com for meetings and collaboration. I know this is different from Zoom, but is it also different fromTeams? Are there others on the list using Google Meets? Is Hangouts the same as any of these?  Please clarify and give me some good places to learn how to use Google Meets.

 

Many thanks.

 

Marilyn

Hi Sameer,

 

I’m hardly using Teams for three weeks now on a laptop running Windows 10 with jaws 2020 latest update because this is my employer’s recommended tool for remote working.

 

This app is globally accessible except for defining a “contact group” in the “Chat” tab, “Contacts” subtab.

 

In order to learn how to use it, I started from this web page:

I did not install any Jaws script yet but if there are some, I’d also like to know.

 

Hope this helps. Have a nice day. Chris D

Dear List Friends,

 

Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.

 

Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be used with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a Windows 10 machine.

 

Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

 

Regards
