Thanks so much, Bill. The first issue is now solved. I checked to ensure that notifications were on, and they already were. So, still not sure why it only announces people being put in the waiting room if I am outside the zoom meeting window.

Hi again, Cynthia. A correction to my last message regarding enabling and disabling alerts in Zoom. F9 is not a toggle. It only tells you if alerts are enabled or disabled. To toggle this function, press ALT plus WINDOWS KEY plus S.

Subject: a couple of JAWS and zoom questions

 

Hello All,

 

I have noticed a couple of changes in what JAWS is speaking when in zoom – I wonder if anyone has found a solution? I am using the most up to date version of zoom, the current JAWS 2021 (haven’t upgraded yet), and windows 10 on my Dell XPS laptop.

 

  1. Recently, when I go into the participant list in a meeting, JAWS reads something like  “To move to an item press the arrow keys” before saying the participant name. It is incredibly annoying, and it just keeps saying that as I arrow through the list.
  2. It has also stopped letting me know when someone has entered the waiting room or raised their hand. If I have navigated away from the zoom meeting and am in, for example, Outlook, it will tell me someone has been put in the waiting room. If I am in the meeting, it tells me nothing.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

 

Cynthia
