worked as supposed, no matter if Zoom was maximized or not.

Hi all, I would like to shed more light on this particular problem.

After the participants panel is opened, NVDA will read all the names that
appear on the screen when arrowing down. So, there will be more names that
appear if the panel is maximise.

For instance, I have participant 1 to 12 appearing on the screen and NVDA
will read all of them when I arrow down. When I reach participant 12, and
arrow down once more, NVDA will go silent. It will not read participant 13.

I am using windows 8.1, latest version of NVDA, Zoom and Zoom Enhancement
add-on. This does not happen with JAWS. Thanks.

Nope. I'm saying I probably cannot test this tomorrow as I'm not
teaching the class, just taking taking it, and I don't think you can
view the people

in the class unless you are host. I'm glad there is a work around
though inc

in my zoom class I want to teach one day gets over 7 people..

I'll have to try this the next time I'm in my class of about 125
people. Or

not. I'm taking not teaching the class, so I don't think I'll be able
to test the work around. Let me know before tomorrow, please.

I believe it was reported that my suggestion of using reade current
line to

read the names works around the problem. That would be much more
efficient than trying to make the parts of the list read unlessor
until the problem is

solved. If you use NVDA and don't know how to read the current line
conveniently when moving in a case like this, ask here. It can be
done so conveniently that you won't mind the problem to any extent.

Unfortunately it doesn't help. I am having the exact same issue.

Hi


The link to the add on is found at
https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/zoomEnhancements.en.html
<https://addons.nvda-project.org/addons/zoomEnhancements.en.html>

I am guessing if they have done a add on for it hopefully some of
those problems will go away.

Is that with the zoom add on you still get that result or is it
without it?

I am in a Zoom meeting right now, and can confirm that NVDA does not
speak when arrowing down after six participants. Interestingly, if
you go to the bottom of the list and use your up arrow, the same
thing happens. I waited several seconds before pressing the arrow key
again, and NVDA never spoke.

When testing a problem like this, it may be helpful to test for such

Assuming that something is or isn't happening may lead to an
incorrect description of a problem.

Nor have I done much testing with this, as I'm usually trying to
focus on the meeting I'm attending, but I do not expect my screen
reader, no matter what it is, to suddenly be delayed by several
seconds after arrowing down a half a dozen times with no problem
whatsoever. I may have a meeting on Saturday, so I will play around
with this if that meeting happens.

How long do you wait before deciding that nothing will be read? The
meetings I attend generally don't have a lot of attendees. Generally
something like eight or ten. If I down arrow a lot of times, speech
is delayed, I didn't play with this much because I wanted to hear
what was going on in the meeting, but it seemed to me that in perhaps
ten seconds,

I

would hear something.

It might help those analyzing the problem if they knew if speech
stops or

is

very delayed. I didn't do enough testing to know on my machine. I may
when

I attend another meeting.

Hi

I tried the read current line or the read the current line of the
navigation object and NVDA reads to me when I encounter the problem.
This is just a work-around, how nice if a solution can be found for
this. Thanks.

What happens if you down arrow and when speech stops, read the

navigator object, in the desktop layout, numpad 8. I don't know the

You
may

not hear anything but if this combination allows you to hear the
names as

you move, that may be a work around that is reasonable for now.

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.
