Microsoft Teams on mac, lagging for you as well?

macOS & Mac Apps

Hey everyone.

So because we're using ms teams for our training these days, i thought I would give it a spin on the mac to see how well it works. the windows version as well as the mobile apps work quite fine and without any big hitch.

But here's the problem MS teams on mac seams to lag alot with VO, i often get the busy mesage and focus jumps around like crazy. I know that there are hotkeys for teams on the mac which I also discovered, but for example when I jump to the team overview with cmd plus 3, it takes a while, it lands on the overview but instantly jumps somewhere else then.

Is this a general thing with VO and web content? Or is it only due to my virtual machine in which I'm running Mac OS. Are there any fixes for that?

Thanks in advance.

greetings Moritz.

Hi Mority: We also use Teams at my work place. And I have found it's so much easier to use on my iPhone than the computer. I have the Windows version but sounds like it will be easier on your phone than the Mac too.

Well it's quite doable on Windows, if you know the shortcuts navigation is pritty quick and fluent and it's definitly doable and has some advantages.

But on the Mac is where the problems start happening.

Just as an FYI, if you plan on using Teams on your Windows machine and you are using JAWS, you will need to install certain JAWS scripts as there is a window resizing glitch that the scripts correct.
