You are out of luck. I am not aware of any screen readers that can handle the videos that come across when using zoom or WebEx.

Hi Chris, what my coworkers are screen sharing is whatever is on their screen, such as what is being displayed in visual studio as they drive. It might be a video, as they screen share themselves programming in visual studios.

I doubt it.  The thing being shared is likely an image, and it would have to be ocr'ed and it wouldn't turn out well at all.

Hi John,

What I mean is that I work with people who can see. They run conferences where they share their screens. I wondered if there is a way I can see what they are sharing on their screens.

Thank you,

Hi Michael,


I’m not quite sure what you mean, but I use Zoom frequently and share screens with other blind Zoom users.

Obviously, as the other users are also totally blind, then they can’t actually see what is displayed on the screen, but they can definitely hear any audio soundtrack of what I’m sharing.

Not sure if that helps or not?


Kind regards, Jon

Hi, is it possible when using zoom or WebEx to set it up to where I can see what people are sharing through screen sharing as a jaws user? Thanks.
