Sharing VoiceOver Sound in Video Conferencing?
Does anyone know how to share the sound of Voice Over using any type of video conferencing or streaming?
I am doing UX testing for IOS apps and need to hear Voice Over to see how users interact with the app I'm having them test.
The best I have found is Zoom Meetings, it streams the audio that is not Voice Over, like music.
But if I use Zoom, then I need to have testers only use the self-voicing functionality.
I would prefer something that can capture Voice Over.
I just started using the WhatsApp a couple of weeks ago. I discovered that if you use the voice message feature then the VO is also heard within the recording. It should be noted that you must use the gesture that locks the mic into the on position. The gesture is double tap and slide up to lock recording. This does two things, it enables the VO to be heard within the recording and locks the mic into the on position so you don't have to continuously use the double tap and hold gesture for the duration of the recording. If you do not want the VO to be heard within the recording, use the double tap and hold without releasing your finger throughout the recording; otherwise, the VO sneaks into the recording. Perhaps thisd will assist you.
Is this app your testing in iOS or Mac? If the app your testing is on a Mac, you should be able to route the voice over feedback through an external sound device, such as a external speaker, or apple tv. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure due to iOS limitations, the only way to accomplish this would have to be air play to another apple device.
I believe Zoom has a feature where you can use airPlay. in voiceover settings, under audio, make sure the send audio over HDMI is on. This might help in the zoom app itself actually. Often if you are on a tv, you would want VoiceOver out the pffone speaker and not blasting over your video, hence why this setting exists.
