The commands Bill refers to come with the scripts you can buy from Hartgen Consultancy. If you do not have those scripts, then the command you must enter to see who is talking (assuming you are using JAWS) is JAWS Key with the number 3 then Control with the number 2. This is two keystrokes, one after the other.

Hi again, Robin. To understand the conflict which arises with CONTROL plus two on the numbers row,
1. While in Zoom, press JAWS key plus H twice quickly, to virtualize the window, so you can arrow up and down through the content. You will see the following,
To review the last 10 alerts or messages, press Control+1 through to Control+0. Press twice quickly to virtualise.
So, if the last alert wasn't the name of the speaker, instead of hearing what you actually want to hear, you will hear the second to last alert.
You will also see, toward the end of that hotkey window,
To have Zoom announce who's currently talking, press control+Shift+T.
This is an alternate JAWS keystroke, which substitutes for CONTROL plus two, which usually gives the name of the current speaker, for those using other screen readers than JAWS.

I looked up the keyboard command to announce who is speaking on a Zoom call, since I have meetinsgs with similar sounding participants. Zoom Settings says it’s Control 2, but when I hit that in a Zoom meeting, it’s saying “Unmute my audio with (Alt+A) or press and hold the SPACE key to temporarily unmute.”. Are others of you getting it to work? Any limitations to when it will work? On Windows 10 with JAWS 2022 Feb Release and the Zoom desktop client 5,9,3,3169
