Zoom Cloud Meetings: Can I block Voice Over from the meeting audio?

macOS & Mac Apps

I facilitate meetings using Zoom and don't want VM to go out on the call. Is there a way I can block VM from the conference but still have access for my own screen navigation? Thanks for any advice.

I also use Zoom on a regular basis on the iPhone. I find that if I just use a set of ear buds, the other people in the meeting do not hear Voiceover speech.
Hope this helps.

I believe VoiceOver should already be minused out on the mix because on phone and FaceTime calls it's usually silenced, however earbuds aren't a bad recommendation, either.

Hello, I found this post and have a similar question. If I am hosting a meeting and don't need to share audio then I can plug in headphones and everything is fine but there are times when I must screen share as well as share sound. When in Zoom, I hear what seems like a second VO voice announcing everyone who enters the conference and everything that is put in the chat box. JAWS has a speech on demand function for zoom, does VO have anything like that? Thanks!
