Have a Microsoft 365 question? Submit it online! Your question may be featured in a future podcast episode.
How to teach an elementary student how to use TEAMS when they are visually impaired/blind and can not see the features like microphone or camera? or even just getting into their meetings without assistance from an adult. So many people think that everyone knows what the “function” keys are and how to use them. That is not something that elementary students are taught and especially not at the current time with the Covid virus.
