moderated Fw: how do you test your internal microphone in zoom to confirm the mike is working properly?

Hank William Merchant

Good morning,

In zoom when you are not yet in an active zoom meeting, Using jaws, how does a person go about testing their internal microphone in
zoom to confirm that indeed your computer internal microphone is working
properly so that other meeting participants when you are in an active meeting will for sure
indeed here you loud and clear talk to them properly? Any help I can maybe
get with this would be so very much appreciated! Much, much thanks in
advance for any possible help with this particular concern when using zoom.

Kindest regards,

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
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!
