Re: Is there a way to determine who is talking in Zoom?

Hello,

The JAWS scripts for Zoom use control-2 as well as the other ctrl number
keys.
I went into Zoom settings and keyboard and changed mine to ctrl-period.

I don't know why you would have to use the bypass command. JAWS shouldn't
use control 2 for anything. It isn't a standard screen-reader command and I
found out now that Outlook uses it for create an appointment.

Yes, Gene I am using CTRL 2, as it was listed in the list of keystrokes I
have.

No, but are you using control 2? That would be a most unlikely command for
a screen-reader to use, particularly since it is used in some programs like
Windows Media Player to change where you are in the program.

Gene, Using NVDA, which I presume you used, did you have to do a bypass
command, I did for jaws.
I ask that because lol, someone spoke today and by the time I issued those
two keystrokes, they finished talking and I didn't catch the name.

The command is a Zoom command. it isn't a screen-reader command. A sighted
friend told me there is a visual way the program shows who is speaking.
Presumably, the underlying information the program uses for the visual
display is accessible to the screen-reader. The screen doesn't change
because sighted people already have the information. I assume the
screen-reader is made to speak by the program using whatever it uses to
force speech whenever an alert is spoken.

Gene,
I forgot to ask since I am still trying to determine if this key stroke is
screen reader exclusive.
I have no one to test it on using NVDA but when using it in a meeting
earlier today at work using jaws latest, I had to evoke the bypass key then
press CTRL 2.
My coworkers who do not use any screen reader, it didn't work. Then again,
why would it, they don't need to hear who is talking, I suppose as they can
probably tell in another way?

Thanks to those who gave information. I tried control 2 in a test meeting
and it worked. I had looked at a list of shortcut keys in the past but
there are so many I thought it might be faster and easier to ask.

That's an important command for people to know. I often wonder who is
speaking in a meeting if I don't know the people or don't know them well.

Or try ctrl 2.
I'm reading these from a list of commands posted on this list many moons
ago.

To clarify, because I want my whole message in the message body in case
someone doesn't pay attention to the subject line, is there any way to have
Zoom announce who is talking? I haven't found one and nothing in the
description of the NVDA add-on says the add-on provides this ability.

I don't use JAWS anymore, but it would still be good to know if it can do
this.

Is there a way, either using JAWS or NVDA, to determine who is speaking? I
haven't seen any command to do so and when I've looked around the interface,
I see no way the screen-reader can tell you that.

Thanks for information.

Gene
