Re: What are we missing access to in Zoom?

Hi. These options are totally accessible. I suspect the problem is that you're not seeing them as you haven't set up an account. Even with a free account you will encounter these options.

I should add that I don't have a Zoom account.  I join meetings and having an account isn't necessary.  So are the settings in the right pane not accessible to everyone under those conditions or are they not accessible to blind users?

Subject: What are we missing access to in Zoom?

Although Zoom is generally useable, from the comments of a sighted friend
and from what I've seen in help files and looking around the interface, it
appears that there is a whole pane of Zoom we have no access to. I think we
have access to the left pane, with all the controls and fields users can tab
around to, but I've tried all sorts of navigation methods and one or two
keyboard commands and I can't see, as far as I can tell, anything in the
right pane.  the right pane may include a settings opttion, a help option,
and perhaps other things.

What are we missing and is it important enough to contact the Zoom
development or accessibility, whoever is in charge of such things, team
