I had wanted an iOS app to do this, but in my research, I think Apple

So, I guess I need a Windows tool that I can use with JAWS.

Seriously, drop him.  There is absolutely no reason whatsoever to disable Windows Defender in that manner.  Not only is it absolutely the opposite of "invasive," if you choose a third party security suite it will be automatically turned off until or unless that suite were uninstalled.  The only Windows Defender feature you could use when it's disabled is the Offline Scan, which occurs before Windows actually loads.  When Windows Defender is disabled the definition files are still kept up to date since it could be called upon again at any given point in time, whether through a third-party tool being uninstalled or a user wanting to do an Offline Scan.

Yes, they are two separate options. I usually use passwords as my meetings are often confidential. The other option is for either everybody can access, or, authorised users can access. The default is everyone can access.

That being said, the vast majority of Zoom meetings do not require login of any kind.  The organizers should send out a direct link or the meeting number, which can be used in the Zoom App to go straight in to a given meeting.

Hi.


The built in windows way to do so is to press windows+b. If you use JAWS insert or caps lock plus f11 will give you a virtualized list showing all the items. NVDA offers an add-on that does this too.


You can also shift+tab or tab to the tray from the desktop

Re: Gmail Password

The person who set up this class is definitely new to Zoom & not very technical.  I think having the meeting id & a class password is sufficient also.  Of course had I not been stupid enough to record my gmail password incorrectly, I wouldn’t have started this thread.

I'm not doubting you've needed to do it, but you need to talk to your meeting organizer(s), if these meetings are going to be ongoing, to see if they know how to set up a meeting where they assign a meeting password, but the Zoom User needs nothing more than that.

It appears that CathyAnne Murtha's last session on Windows 10 she's offering (See: Free Lunch Break Windows 10 Training with CathyAnne.) was Zoom bombed in such a way that the disruption could not be easily managed.

She's going to try requiring a password, but note well, that password is for the meeting itself, which she will assign as the Zoom meeting organizer.  It is not anyone's user account password for a Google or Yahoo or other account.

I lost the original message, but it sounds to me like these options were missing entirely. And guess what? They were on my system too! Did you all know that you can completely and permanently disable defender/security using group policy editor? Well, it seems that’s’ what the guy who built my pC and put everything in a nice new case during the summer + added ssd did, as he says he finds Defender too invasive. I don’t want to argue this point as I see both sides, but I assumed,  that when I disabled realtime protection in Malwarebytes for isntance, Defender would pick up the slack. Ell, it didn’t, and I went for quite a while (I won’t say how long because it’s embarrassing) without any kind of realtime threat protection at all.

So uh, maybe check in group policy editor and see if windows defender antivirus is disabled. If you need instructions on how to do this I can probably provide them. Incidentally a little reading suggests that some malware (presumably unknowingly granted all administrative access) can actually do this. Scary. Haha

I don't see any real changes in Windows Security over the last several cumulative updates.  The last big change was the shift from Windows Defender to Windows Security itself.  I also seldom do any manual scans since Windows Defender does routine system scanning on its own, and realtime protection is on by default for all downloads.

That being said:
1. Settings.
2. Update & Security.
3. Windows Security Pane, Activate Virus & Threat Protection
4. Under Virus & Threat Protection, the same controls as always exist:
        a) Quick Scan button
        b) Scan Options link, which, if activated presents the standard series of radio buttons:
                i) Quick Scan (selected by default)
               ii) Full Scan
              iii) Custom Scan
               iv) Windows Defender Offline scan
                   followed by the Scan Now button to activate whatever scan type was selected via the radio button.

----------------------------------------------
The above has been the same in my observation since Windows Security made its debut.

I guess just be careful, and do what I've done fo ryears. Have a waiting room for all to join, they have to be let in by the host, and if they miss it or have to rejoin and the host won't let them in, then, well, tha'ts it.

Take care and be blessed, and happy learning.

I’m told that the person who starts a Zoom meeting has a default option of requiring a password. The default can be undone. Making this request led to a solution of my Zoom problem.

 

However, my Google/Gmail problem has so far gone unsolved. I do know what my password used to be, but Google is no longer accepting it. so I had to go through the reset password process. This led me to a CATCHA nightmare and a requirement that I give my phone number in order to accept a texted temporary password. As I say, problem yet to be solved.

Yes, this is the first Zoom meeting I have attended that required a sign in & password.  Since he sent us a password, I assumed that is what Zoom wanted instead of my gmail password.  Yes, I do want to reset it but would like to just do it from Outlook somewhere.

I'm not going to speak to anything Gmail in relation to Zoom, even though I use Gmail and know it extremely well, because the sequence of events here is important..  If you don't know your Gmail password you should reset it anyway, and make sure to keep a record of it.  Also, as part of the reset process, give Google either an alternate email or a cell phone number that can be used to verify you should you somehow get locked out of your account

That being said, the vast majority of Zoom meetings do not require login of any kind.  The organizers should send out a direct link or the meeting number, which can be used in the Zoom App to go straight in to a given meeting.
