Zoom: No character echo when entering meeting ID

Daniel Gartmann




A while back there was an offer to enhance NVDA functionality with online meeting platforms such as Zoom.


Well, I have problems entering a meeting-id and hearing the individual characters in the edit box as I type and when I want to review what I have just typed.


Here is the developer info in the hope that someone would be interested to take a look at it:
