solution for reading chats in Zoom?

Hi

My experience is that whenever my chat panel is open, any chat messages will be read out by NVDA whenever they come. Thanks.

anything when chats come in?

ones have arrived, something you wouldn't want to keep manually checking.

You can read the chats with ctrl+f1, ctrl+f2, etc. I'm not sure how
to copy info from a chat, though.

My experience is that NVDA will read out the chat when I am in the main room, but will fail to do that when I am in breakout room.

My solution is to call out the chat window with Alt + H. This will deal with the problem of NVDA not reading out the chat.

You can use the add-on Speech History to read each chat that has been read out or copy each chat to the clipboard.

The hotkeys are :

Shift + F11

Shift + F12

F12 to copy

Hope this help.

There was recently a thread about reading chats in Zoom, but it didn't
seem there was a proper solution, and until Sunday, I forgot I was
having the same problem. NVDA used to read chat messages to me
automatically, but I think it quit doing that for me in about May. How
do I restore this functionality? I've noticed with the latest version,
NVDA now reads recording alerts.
