Re: faced 2 problems while using zoom with NVDA
Here's some additional follow-up to Sarah's suggestions. Apologies for all of this detail. I hope some of it may be helpful.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
There's a "Save Chat" button, in the Chat window, under the "More Chat Options" button. You can use this button to save the chat at any time, as many times as you like during a Zoom meeting. NVDA does not announce anything when you press the "Save Chat" button, but if you tab backwards a few times, you'll land on a "Show in Folder" button, which will open a File Explorer window that has your saved chat text file.
It looks like this save chat function will save any updates to the same file, so you'll only have one saved chat file, for each meeting. Even if the function to automatically save chat at the end of the meeting has been enabled, it looks like that also updates the same file. So any time you open this file, it should contain all of the chat messages, as of the last time chat was saved in that meeting.
Note that in Zoom versions 4.5.0 or later, there is a setting under the "Meetings" tab, that would allow a host to "Prevent participants from saving chat". This setting is different from, and independent of the "Auto saving chats" setting, which only saves chat at the end of the meeting. Not surprisingly, if I start a Zoom meeting with the "Prevent participants from saving chat" setting enabled, I can't make it available during that meeting, even if I change the setting.

That's the problem I have with accessing things on Zoom, I can't seem to access anything until the chat is saved at the end of the meeting.
I can read messages, but I can't seem to copy them to the clipboard until the meeting is ended, when a text file pops up with the entire chat up to the point you copied.
