moderated Re: Jaws too verbose with Zoom
Hi Norma, and all,
I think I have narrowed down the issue with insert+tab using Jaws 2020 or 2021 and Zoom.
There is a problem with the Zoom scripts I guess in Jaws 2020 and 2021.
Jaws command: SayWindowPromptAndText, JAWSKey+Tab
Which should just return the information of the prompt and window text, right?
But in Zoom, it returns:
Alerts Enabled. Chat Messages captured only. Jump to contact, group chat or channel, shortcut Ctrl+T, editing box: Edit‑ Type in text.
After the annoying extra verbiage of " Alerts Enabled. Chat Messages captured only." It gives you what you wanted.
In Jaws 2019 where there is no Zoomsoftware files, it returns only the Window prompt and text as it should.
So, while I am not advanced enough to know how to fix this, the presence of the ZoomSoftware.* files in Jaws 2020 and 2021 seems to be the problem.

I’ve changed berbosity settings. I am confident this is a problem with Jaws.
Did you try going into the verbosity settings for JAWS? That might help, but I'm not sure otherwise
