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


Gene
 

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


Gene
 

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.

Or try ctrl 2.

Hi Gene.

This function is available running jaws if you have the pro scripts written
by Brian Hartgen. Not sure if NVDA offers similar support but I don't
believe so.

Chris is correct. Using the Zoom Professional scripts you can press shift-ctrl-T to determine who is speaking.

Hi Group,

NVDA does not have an add on for Zoom, but using the iPhone app, if you center the cursor via touching, you can things like 'viewing John Brown's video' which indicates that he is talking.

Actually, I believe last week someone on the list said that NVDA did create a new add on for zoom. Unfortunately I’m not currently on a system with NVDA so can’t verify. Check on the add ons page on the nvaccess site.

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.

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?

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, 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.

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.

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.

To clarify, because I want my whole message in the message body in case

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.

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.

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

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.

Yeah, in outlook indeed it does that which I've known for years.
All I know is there are two commands in zoom I used today of which one
worked with the bypass command of course. CTRL 2 and the other key stroke I
used listed was Alt+F1: Switch to active speaker view in video meeting which
jaws didn't echo nothing.

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.

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.

It is very important to note: these key strokes can all be modified from
with in the zoom hot key dialog box

If u for example do not modify the control 2 keystroke, and u r running jaws
2020 or any version of jaws that has the built in standard zoom scripts, u
will sadly be disappointed.

That, plus the other nine keys from 1 through 0, when pressed in conjunction
with the ctrl key, will read the last 10 messages or room alerts, depending
on how u told the scripts to notify u of which events are happening.

I am not speaking about nvda here, I am simply saying that jaws zoom
pre-installed basic scrips, already have mapped ctrl plus 2, to read a
particular line of chat entry or room activity.

I have modified ctrl plus 2 via zoom's hot key modifying section, to ctrl
plus alt plus 2. Just remember to press escape in the dialog to save your
changes, if u modify any of the 60 or so zoom pre-default hotkeys, with your
own mappings.

So, ctrl 2, is now ctrl, alt 2, for reading current speaker name

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.

The Jaws scripts for Zoom use ctrl +2 for one of the announcements

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?
