Hi Gene,

Microsoft Teams is completely accessible with NVDA. 
Have used it on my Windows computer and haven't found any difficulty with it.
Sharing some links from Microsoft Support and will be of help to anyone using Microsoft Teams


The above link has all the information together at one place including setup and functionality, including the Microsoft Teams app download link.

Hope this helps

hello everybody

I have installed today Microsoft team app For Windows ten 64 bit

I am working with NVDA 2019.3.1  with vocalizer Expressive addons for NVDA with English and Hebrew voices

the problem I have with Microsoft teams is that when moving between different programs ,and then returning to Microsoft teams app I no longer hear NVDA speech on the Microsoft teems app. NVDA keeps speaking  on windows in all of the programs I use to work with but not on Microsoft teems app. I can see the focus moves between the different elements of the program but no speech .by the way this is happens also with JAWS 2019. Only if I restart my computer and then restart NVDA and then open the Microsoft Teams app ,NVDA works with speech on the app .

Also I have tried to change TTS to the windows one core voice and two other voices  - and the issue still happening.

 

Welcome Eilana.  I have integrated your question into a currently active topic:  Does nvda work with Microsoft teams? 

Activate that link to review what has been discussed already over the last day.  This message, by member Pramit, with a tutorial might be of particular interest.

Hello.

While Microsoft Teams does have a few accessibility issues it does work very nicely with NVDA. I have started a discussion group for the purpose of discussing Teams with an emphasis on accessibility. To join, send an email to

teams-access+subscribe@groups.io

Please note that, due to time constraints, I am not able to provide personal support regarding using Teams. However, please send any relevant questions to the list.
