Raise your hand within Microsoft Teams with IOS 14.6

iOS and iPadOS

On my iPhone 11 running IOS 14.6, I find Microsoft Teams easy and accessible with VoiceOver apart from 1 option: During a Q&A session, where can I find the raise your hand option? Sighted users tap on a picture of a hand

Hello BlackCat, You are right. Teams is easier to use on iOS than on the computer. Although, Leasey has some Jaws scripts for Teams that is supposed to make it easier to use. So, when we have a staff meeting, I get on Teams on my phone. Not sure how to raise your hand. I just tap the button to unmute and say something.

Hi there!

I use Teams to attend Braille Institute meetings and workshops. For me, there's a list of names of whose in the meeting, a mute/unmute button, and then a button that says: raise my hand.
I know an ipad screen is bigger than a phone though. And while there's a button to raise hands in the app, there's no command to raise hands using the keypad on your phone, as there is in Zoom.
