Hello Bob. Just curious, does SA have that problem? System Access I mean?

I have this issue too. What I've found to work is to hit your up arrow when you get to the point where it goes silent, then your down arrow again. That helps for a brief time, then you have to repeat that process again. I agree, kind of annoying. I'm also having two additional issues with NVDA not reading things properly in Zoom:
1. When typing anything in Zoom and you type something wrong, NVDA does not read what you backspace. It reads if you type things normally, but if you try to review or correct an error, it will not read.
2. If you're in a meeting that initially isn't being recorded, then the host starts recording, NVDA does not read the alert that tells you that the meeting is now being recorded.

Hi all,

Wish to report the above problem when using NVDA in Zoom. IN a zoom
meeting, if I wish to find out the list of participants, I will press
alt + U to call out the participants panel. I will then arrow down the
list. After severl down arrow, NVDA will stop speaking.

I am using the latest version of NVDA, Zoom enhancement app and Zoom.
This problem has been there even with the older version of NVDA and
Zoom. I am using Windows 8.1. I have tried the following with no avail:

1. Wit no apps

2. restart NVDA

3. Re-boot my computer.

Just wish to find out if any of you have similar problem and what can
be done? Perhaps this can help to improve future version of NVDA.

I have also use JAWS and this has not been a problem. Thanks all.
