I've never had my screen reader being louder than my voice on zoom calls
before. Interesting problem. If you're on a PC, have you tried the volume
mixer? When JAWS or NVDA is running, they will show up in the list of
applications that are running. If you're a keyboard user, the Windows+B
shortcut will move your focus to the bottom right taskbar that shows your
clock and speaker settings. You can arrow right to the speaker icon then
press the context menu button (if you have one of those on your keyboard,
usually to the right of the spacebar, sometimes between the Windows key and
the Ctrl key) and choose "Open Volume Mixer". If you're a mouse user, then
you can right click on the speaker icon. Or you can hit the Windows key
and start typing "volume" and select "Adjust system volume".
Anyway, once that dialog is up, try adjusting the volume for the screen
reader. Whatever you set it to should be remembered the next time you run
the screen reader.
