I also use it for my youtube streams as well. It's just better than team talk. Both have their place, but zoom is just easy peezy to set up.

I fully agree, Zoom is very accessible. I use it in my company daily many times since it  replaced webEx and Skype for Business for our conference calls. Even the presentation pane can be focussed easily and the content of it can be read with NVDAs OCR (NVDA-r).

I read their training materials and it worked well for me. Also, their tech support is excellent, and they have been trained about screen readers. I am not saying that they know keystrokes and all that, but they do have a clue about screen readers. Try their training materials first. Oh, and I love Zoom.

About the time limit thing, you read correctly. Alt+a mutes and unnmutes audio, alt+v turns on and off your video. NVDA WILL READ ALERTS TO YOU. Alerts are when you turn on/off video, audio, or when someone joins the meeting.


If you are in the home tab, you will see a search field. Tab past that, and you will see a drop down button. When you down-arrow, you will eventually get to settings. Most everything explains itself as far as settings go. There is a tab under settings that gives you all keyboard shortcuts you could ever want. You can change them if you wish to. I hope this helps you a bit.

Hi guys


Does any one know of a tutorial for us to learn how to use this program?

There seems to be videos aimed more at the sighted.


I was browsing there website at

It looks as though you can do one on one for free but if in a group only up to 40 minutes for free if I read it right.


Has any one used it or have notes on it to use it.


I have been asked to use it they sent me a link and it is all setup to go into a room etc and had a look around the app I think you would call it.


But I was also looking at it from the other side you setting up a room or inviting some one into the room etc if you get what I mean but not going into all the other features it has.



Any help would be great I guess also down the track to try it out from the other side the basic's of using it with some one.
