Hi everyone,

I am writing to ask if anyone on the list teaches on Teams.

I am at a new job where I am expected to teach courses on Teams. I have used
Teams in my previous job, but I find that the application is behaving
differently with my new account.

For example, I can't seem to use the keyboard shortcuts I used to use such
as ctrl + shift + M for mute/unmute, ctrl+shift+O for turning on and off the
camera. Also, the Teams gets stuck quite often, meaning that no keyboard
command of any kind including tab/shift tab works. I just have to do alt f4
and then rejoin the session.

I am using the latest version of JAWS 2021 on a Windows 10 for your

Maybe it is because my university is still setting up my account properly
but I find it concerning that I can't seem to use Teams the way I was able
to in my previous job.

If you have any idea how/why this might be happening, and/or if you use
Teams to teach regularly, I'd love to learn from you.


Best regards,




Miso Kwak Ed.M.
