Dear Miso,

Thanks for asking your questions. Yes, Teams can be interesting to work 
with. There are scripts available for Teams that you can install from 
the following URL:


The above scripts are maintained by Dug Lee, not sure if you knew this 
name or not. But he is behind many JAWS scripts for apps. Anyways, the 
installer works regardless of whether you are using a work computer (it 
won't prompt you for a user account permission). In my last work I used 
Teams successfully and I was able to install the JAWS scripts on my work 
laptop without any problem.

As for Teams being stuck, yes, it also has happened to me and I would 
usual press Alt+Tab to try and regain focus to the Teams app and that 
usually works well.

Good luck with your course-teaching and happy "Teamsing"!
