Use a screen reader to work with groups 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 create and manage groups. 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.

Create a group

Create a group to collaborate and share a collection of resources with a set of people in Microsoft Stream. Adding members to the group automatically gives them the access to the videos and channels within the group.

Before you create the group, decide whether it's a public group that anyone in your organization can join, or if it's a private group that has a limited number of people who can access the group videos.

Note: When you create a group in Stream, a new Microsoft 365 Group is created that can be used across Microsoft 365 apps. The group gets a dedicated email address, calendar, site, etc. If you already use Microsoft 365 Groups in your organization, you can start using those groups in Microsoft Stream right away.

  1. In Microsoft Stream, press the Tab key until you hear "Create," and press Enter. The Create menu opens.

  2. Press the Down arrow key until you reach the Group option, and press Enter. The Create a group dialog box opens and the focus is in the Group name field.

  3. Type a name for your group.

  4. To add a description for the group, press the Tab key until you hear "Group description," and type the group description.

  5. To define whether the group is a private or a public group, press the Tab key until you hear: "Access, Private group." Press Spacebar, then use the Up and Down arrow keys to move the focus to the group type you want, and press Enter to select.

  6. By default all group members are allowed to add and remove videos or channels and edit the permissions of the group. To restrict the editing rights, press the Tab key until you hear "On, Allow all members to contribute," and press Spacebar. Only the owner of the group can now edit and contribute to the group.

  7. To add members to the group, press the Tab key until you hear: "Search for people." Type the name or the email address of the first member. Press the Tab key until you hear the name of the contact you want to add, and press Enter. Repeat this step for all the contacts you want to add.

    Everyone you add to the group gets member privileges by default. For instructions on how to promote a member to group owner, refer to Manage group memberships.

  8. To create the group, press the Tab key until you hear "Create," and press Enter. The group is created and its group page opens.

    For instructions on how to add videos to the group, refer to Use a screen reader to add videos to a group or channel in Microsoft Stream.
