Re: remote mobile app tests - sharing screen and audio(android)

As far as I am aware, there is no way to do that. Our solution is to mirror the mobile screen onto a PC and do the Zoom call from the PC. A microphone connected to the PC will pick up all the audio output from the phone. It helps if the user has a good quality microphone, not the rubbish one you get in a laptop.

Subject: [WebAIM] remote mobile app tests - sharing screen and audio (android)


We want to do remote user tests with screen reader users. Currently we are testing apps on Android mobile phones.

When we use Zoom on Android, we can share the screen of the mobile phone, but not the audio (neither system sounds nor TalkBack voice output).

Any ideas, how to do this?

Thanks a lot.
