Please help, questions about zoom and voice-over

iOS & iPadOS

Hi there,
So tomorrow for work I have to create a zoom meeting.
I was just wondering how to share what's on my iPad screen to all the other participants in the meeting, and wanted to know if there was a way to do this without turning on the video, just audio.
I don't have access to a desktop computer, and I've looked on the zoom website and it seems to be able to do it with just my iPad I just can't find the controls with voice-over.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Ipadman,

Zoom and VO work really well together. You will only see the controls to share your screen once the meeting you have created has started. You’ll have to do a fair bit of swiping to find them, but they are there.

Regarding your question about sharing without turning on video... I don’t know if this is possible. Is there someone you could test this with before your work meeting starts?

Best of luck with the meeting.

I had a meeting a couple weeks ago where I had my video turned off and I shared my iPad. However, I didn’t find it easy to use VoiceOver. I had to turn VO off to poke my way around the UI. Don’t know if your vision is good enough for that. Like the previous poster said, practice if you have time.

So when I’m in the meeting what exactly do I double tap on
I know I have to add screen recording to customise controls in the control Centre I can’t get it to broadcast to zoom.
Also, do you know it works in earlier version of iOS I can’t get Ios12
Twe3 on my device.
