Re: learn how to use powered DVD with Jaws

Hey, Gary, I think I like your way better. The blurays I was looking at have 4 audio choices, and one through 3 seem identical. The narrative portion (they're railroad videos) appears on 4 if you make any headway with that Settings menu, give a shout.

In addition to what Ted has said, you can use the Applications key to bring up a menu of choices including Play, Pause, Stop, etc. The Go To submenu for DVD navigation and the Language submenu for selecting the appropriate language track are also reached from this menu. If the DVD has Audio Description, it may be displayed as English 2 in the Language submenu.
Actually, on the "Zero Dark Thirty" Wide Screen Edition DVD I purchased, the Audio Description track was shown as English 3. I haven't checked out English 2 yet.

Okay. The JAWS cursor is very important here. When the program opens,
right click, and you'll here "show-hide Controls." Locking the JAWS and
PC cursors together will allow you to see the various control categories.
Make sure they're all checked.

Next, take a look at what the individual controls are. Right click again,
only this time keep the JAWS and PC cursors separated as you normally
would. Also, make sure you're in Classic Mode, rather than the far more
restricted Cinema Mode. The latter omits several potentially important
audio and video settings you might want to change. Help says the Classic
and Cinema tabs are on the scroll bar at the top. You won't see them,
but, if you ever need to change modes, use Ctrl-Home to get to the top of
the screen, tab over once, and hit Enter. That should do it. I think
classic is the default, so, if you're lucky, you may never have to perform
this operation.

Speaking of settings, this is the name of one of the controls, and here
you may require sighted help. Some of these settings can greatly enhance
usability, such as having the movie pick up where you left off, rather
than start the whole thing over again every time and try to find your

I also recommend consulting the Help file.
