Can you then copy the chat history from the chat window with the nvda zoom add on? I often do not do this, as I have a transcript auto save when I exit th emeeting.
Thank you for the info of the JAWS hotkey and its limitation. The fact is that I seldom use JAWS these days. NVDA is my main screen reader.
Are you using the Zoom enhancer add-on? I find it very useful too.
You can use NVDA + Ctrl + h To open a dialog where you can read all the chats. Thanks.

Thank you. Unfortunately control + shift + t is not a global command. That is, you can’t use it from the minutes file. You must alt + tab to Zoom, control + shift + t, then alt + t back to your minutes file.
You can use
Control + Shift + T for JAWS to announce name of active speaker. with JAWS 2021.
As for copying chat in NVDA, you can use "speech history, review and opying" add-on.
Hope this helps. Thanks.

Is it possible to copy and paste a chat message in a Zoom meeting using NVDA? I serve as a scribe for several groups, and I am going to convert to NVDA due to JAWS no longer supporting the “who is talking” global command “control + 2”.
JAWS stopped supporting this command about three weeks ago. The “who is talking” command is useful for scribes only if it is global so that the scribe can stay in their notes and not switch to the Zoom meeting to activate a local “who is talking” command.
I have complained to Vispero about this.
