I need to initiate screen sharing in behalf of a participant


I have a Zoom participant who has a visual impairment. They mentioned that in the past, screen sharing has been initiated on their behalf by the host or someone else. I can't find any resources online for this. Are there compatible technologies with Zoom (or preferably, something innate in Zoom) that will allow me to send a request to the participant to start screen sharing?

Thank you.

There are a large number of remote support options that can work in tandem with Zoom (and will actually allow you to control all facets of the user's machine, including the Zoom Client application).


You may also wish to utilize keyboard shortcuts for sharing, if these are less difficult for your user.
