Re: accessible dvd software


Peter Donahue
 

Hello everyone,

It's the same reason why they removed the "What You Hear" or "Stereo Mix" settings for sound cards from Windows Vista and later. It's wrong for MS or any software manufacturer to automatically assume that everyone is a media pirate. They would do well to watch Bat Man, Superman, The Lone Ranger, and other programs that began life on radio and eventually wound up on T.V. Old Time Radio collectors preserved these programs for today's generations to enjoy. Thank God they did. Will today's television and radio entertainment wind up in a black hole due to piracy paranoia and be lost to future generations?Fortunately there are those who have found ways to capture this material despite the antics of Microsoft. All the best.

Peter Donahue who will continue to use Windows XP for as long as he can.

Oh, yes, thousands of people use Media Player for piracy to break that encryption. Anyone who wanted to do that could get special copy-busting software via The Internet, probably at no cost. They need to tell another one while that one's hot!

I heard it was to help reduce DVD pirating. I doubt DVD playback added any real significant cost to Windows 8.
I thought you could buy WMP through the Windows App store though.
Only a Win 7 user.

Windows Media Player Version 12 under Windows 8 and 8.1 no longer supports DVD playback. I'm just searching and may have discovered how to add this functionality. Will post later if I find anything. BTW, I heard that Microsoft removed this feature to help keep the cost of Windows down. They no longer license this functionality in WMP.

What OS are you using? Media Player should be one of the options in AutoPlay.

Hi Tim,

Yes, this is very helpful. I thought Windows Media Player would play DVDs, but I can't get it to work. This sounds like a good option.

Hi Jean,

I have a relatively cheap option. I was told by someone I trust that he only fully accessible DVD player, was developed and is sold by IRTI, a long-time blindness products company.

It works fine for both DVD movies and music CD. For movies, you can easily pick any of the alternative audio tracks, such as the audio description, director's comments, etc.

The product is called eClipseMedia-Server Accessible Home Theater. (It includes an internet radio option, which I have not tried, and probably will not since the Victor Reader version 4.3 included that easy internet radio
service.)

You can download for free a full featured 30 day demo version. It costs
$29.95 for the permanent license; they email you the unlocking key.

The program was designed to use the built-in voice you have for narrator.
There is a setting to turn off that voice and use just JAWS, but that button currently does not work. So to use this product as it was designed, which I recommend, turn off JAWS before you launch the software. The software will not allow you to exit JAWS once it launches. You can use it with both voices running, but I find it too confusing.

The link is:

One warning. You will want to go into the control panel and turn off auto start when inserting a movie or music disk.

Hope this helps!
Tim Ford

Wondering if there is an accessible DVD program preferably free?


Thanks.
