Dear List Friends,
 
Is Microsoft Teams accessible with JAWS or do we need to install additional JAWS scrips to make it accessible? If we need to install additional JAWS scrips, kindly inform me where I can get these scrips.
 
Also, request you to kindly point me to a source for keystrokes to be used with Microsoft Teams. I am using the latest version of JAWS 2020 on a Windows 10 machine.
 
Thanking all in advance for any & all assistance.

Hi Sameer,

 

I’m hardly using Teams for three weeks now on a laptop running Windows 10 with jaws 2020 latest update because this is my employer’s recommended tool for remote working.

 

This app is globally accessible except for defining a “contact group” in the “Chat” tab, “Contacts” subtab.

 

In order to learn how to use it, I started from this web page:

I did not install any Jaws script yet but if there are some, I’d also like to know.

 

Hope this helps. Have a nice day. Chris D

JAWS has an archived webinar on using MS Teams. It is very helpful.

Hello.

First, I can tell you that Teams is very accessible with JAWS even without additional scripts. Doug Lee has written some scripts for Teams, which you can find from www.dlee.org.

I have started a list dealing with Teams accessibility related issues. To join, send email to

teams-access+subscribe@groups.io
