I wear headphones. I hear students better that way and no one hears JAWS.

Subject: [NOBE-L] Screen readers during virtual learning

I was wondering what you all do during virtual learning with your screen
readers? Do you have the computers set so that your students can't hear your
reader of choice or do you tell your students you have it? I am asking
because when I'm on zoom I can have it set that way. However, my current
placement are using blackboard collaborate ultra and I was told that when my
microphone is on they can hear voiceover. I want to see if there is a way
for the kids not to hear voiceover when I'm not muted and am teaching. Is
this possible with voiceover on a mac or is that better done on a windows
with jaws?
Thank you in advance for the help,
