Use a screen reader to add videos to a group or channel in Microsoft Stream

Read out loud symbol with the label Screen reader content. This topic is about using a screen reader with Office

This article is for people with visual impairments who use a screen reader program with the Office products and is part of the Office Accessibility content set. For more general help, see Office Support home.

Use Microsoft Stream with your keyboard and a screen reader to add a video to a group or channel. We have tested it with Narrator, NVDA, and JAWS, but it might work with other screen readers as long as they follow common accessibility standards and techniques.

Notes: 

  • New Microsoft 365 features are released gradually to Microsoft 365 subscribers, so your app might not have these features yet. To learn how you can get new features faster, join the Office Insider program.

  • To learn more about screen readers, go to How screen readers work with Microsoft Office.

  • When you use Microsoft Stream, we recommend that you use Microsoft Edge as your web browser and Narrator as your screen reader.

    If you use Chrome or Firefox as your web browser, we recommend that you use JAWS or NVDA as your screen reader.

Add a video to a group or channel

Use groups and channels to organize your videos in Microsoft Stream. A video can be in multiple groups or channels at the same time.

Notes: 

  • If you are the owner of the video, you can add it to any groups or channels you can contribute to.

  • You can add companywide videos to any of your groups or channels, even if you are not the owner of the video.

  1. In Microsoft Stream, browse to and open the video you want to add to a group or channel.

  2. To move to the Details area, press H until you hear the name of the video.

  3. Press the Tab key until you hear "More actions," and press Enter.

  4. Press the Tab key until you hear "Add to group/channel," and press Enter. The Add video to group/channels dialog box opens.

  5. To begin searching for a group or channel, press the Tab key or Shift+Tab until you hear "Select the search type," and press Enter. To define whether to search for groups or channels, use the Up and Down arrow keys, and press Enter to select.

  6. To search for a group or channel, press the Tab key and start typing the group or channel name. The search results update as you type.

  7. Press the Tab key repeatedly until you hear the group or channel you want, and press Enter to select it.

  8. Repeat steps 5 to 7 for each group and channel to which you want to add the video.

    Note: To remove a selected group or channel, press the Tab key or Shift+Tab until you hear "Remove this video from," followed by the name of the group or channel, and then press Enter.

  9. After you've added all the groups and channels you want, press the Tab key until you hear "Add," and press Enter. The video is added and the Add video to group/channels dialog box is closed.
