The article below outlines how a screen reader identifies various portions of the teams interface: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/use-a-screen-reader-to-explore-and-navigate-microsoft-teams... Is there an "official" name for the left vertical bar in Microsoft Teams for Windows, Mac or the web? I've heard Navigation bar or pane, but this documentation refers to it as the app bar. If there isn't an official name, what do you call it? "The dark purple area to the far left of the Teams application?" The navigation bar (since it's at the bottom on the mobile versions) or app bar? Thanks, Dan
