Re: Disable report of alerts from Zoom


Hi Rob

Settings cannot be accessed from within a meeting window. End the meeting
and ensure the main Zoom window has focus.

* Press Control + F to set focus to the Search edit box. This provides a
consistent starting point for navigation.
* Tab twice to Settings.

Note that you can only adjust settings when signed in to your Zoom account
when using the Windows desktop client.

How do you get to the accessibility settings.
I joined a test meeting with the zoom meetings client, and I found no
setting sbutton anywhere that talked about it. I found audio settings and
such, but nothing about accessibility.

Hi Gene

You can check manually using the menu. Place focus on the main Zoom
window and hit Control + F to navigate to the find edit box. Hit tab to
navigate to the menu.

Hi everyone

Coming in late on this discussion, so hope I’m on the right track!

Ensure you update to the latest build of Zoom and you will notice
that they have added the ability to turn on and off alerts for
screen readers in Settings/Accessibility. I only spotted this
yesterday when installing it for a client.

Hope this helps.

I don't know who's organizing the meetings in question, but if you
have the ability to contact them in advance, there are settings they
can tweak to make the join/leave notifications be triggered only for
the meeting Host and Co-Hosts.

See this Zoom Support Page:
-meeting-settings and search on, "Sound notification when someone
join or leave."

Although this may not have a connection to text notification of
same, I'm willing to bet that it might. It's worth checking out, at the
very least.

Zoom is going to have a lot of refining to do, and for reasons of
accessibility plus a lot of others. I doubt that they ever, in
their wildest dreams, foresaw the app taking off as quickly and
gaining as many users as it has in a very short period of time.
While there are limited human resources for tweaking Zoom, they
certainly can't make changes for any problems unless those problems
are reported to them and the changes that would help are spelled out.
