Re: solution for reading chats in Zoom?

Sim Kah Yong

My experience is that NVDA will read out the chat when I am in the main room, but will fail to do that when I am in breakout room.

My solution is to call out the chat window with Alt + H. This will deal with the problem of NVDA not reading out the chat.

You can use the add-on Speech History to read each chat that has been read out or copy each chat to the clipboard.

The hotkeys are :

Shift + F11

Shift + F12

F12 to copy

Hope this help.

But if the chats aren't read out loud and if no indication is given that a chat has arrived, you won't know without continually checking to see if new ones have arrived, something you wouldn't want to keep manually checking.

You can read the chats with ctrl+f1, ctrl+f2, etc.  I'm not sure how
to copy info from a chat, though.
