If you want to turn off speech in nvda you can hit nvda plus s (laptop mode) to cycle through the choices, or listen to the beeps, they are not that  bad.


Good luck.

Hi Sharon and Sarah, what I did was exit NVDa while I was in a meeting. When I wanted out I would start it or Jaws to exit the meeting. I myself would just go into the settings and find all this out. I’ve used my I pad to go into a meeting and just double tap to turn off speech. I prefer using the I pad for those kinds of meetings. Each to their own.  If I use this computer I exit the screen reader so I do not hear so and so entered the room or left.  Same with the I phone. I just double tap and that turns off speech. I don’t know how you’d do it on a tablet that’s not apple.  Or google phone.
