moderated Re: Zoom: seeing the ZoomText screen

I have used both ZoomText and Windows Magnifier in screen share situations. It has been my experience that the person I am screen sharing with does not see the enlarged screen if I am using ZoomText, but does see it enlarged if I am using Magnifier. In fact, I hadn't realized that the other person would see my magnified screen when using Magnifier, and it was quite a surprise to them to see the huge letters.

We are using Zoom to teach students remotely. I use JAWS tandem to

unable to see what her students are doing.

Are there settings she can change in order to see the students'
screen as they see it?
