I don't think any screen reader will let you access presentations from a shared screen. This would, I thought, have been impossible, since the only thing shared is an image.

All the best

Subject: [nvda] faced 2 problems while using zoom with NVDA

hi group members,

I am facing two problems while using zoom with NVDA:
1. I am not able to access the screen someone has shared in a meeting, for e.g. when I am attending a powerpoint presentation I cannot access the slides the presenter has shared during the presentation 2. I am not able to access a link shared in the chat box (I even tried to copy it when I could not open the link with no success)

what could be the solutions to these problems?
