Thank you Joe for this keystroke. I’m going to try it. And I apologize for not looking this up sooner, but I just found out in Zoom, under Settings and Accessibility, we can tab to the Alerts and there are a bunch of check boxes we can uncheck to customize which alerts we hear.

Thank you for that keystroke!

Depending upon your version of Jaws, press Ctrl + Alt + S to silence notifications in Zoom.

When I’m using JAWS with Zoom so often throughout the meeting it tells me that someone has left the meeting, someone’s bandwidth is low or someone’s microphone is muted, etc. Having these messages go through a Zoom meeting several dozen or hundred times is just unworkable. Does anyone know if there is anywhere in the settings center I’m missing how to shut these messages off? I don’t want to turn JAWS off to the “Speech on Demand” because I’m working with a Word document while in the meeting and need JAWS to talk to me, just without these nonstop notifications.

Thank you!
