ZOOM: Can NVDA announce state of mute/unmute?
During a ZOOM session I would like to hear the status of mute/unmute. When I press down the spacebar, NVDA starts to announce “unmute” but does not complete speaking the word “unmute”. When I let up the spacebar NVDA announces “mute”.
It is often impractical to hold down the spacebar to speak. If I manage to click on the mute/unmute icon, NVDA does not announce anything. I know there is a red slash though the icon but that is too hard to see.
Similarly, if I use ALT-A to change the state of mute/unmute, NVDA does not announce this.
I feel I am missing something here and therefore seek your advice. Is there a way to make this work better?
It would also be really handy to have a way to announce the state of mute/unmute without actually changing the state by the controls mentioned above. Something like a hotkey that causes the state of mute/unmute to be spoken would be great. Sometimes during a session I just want to know if I am muted or unmuted because I may have forgotten the status.
Thanks. This is a great forum!!
