Re: getting audio to play on default player

Kramlinger, Keith G., M.D.

Thanks. This is worth a try. How do I turn off the virtual cursor? Keith

I have seen this too. Most of the time, unfortunately, the audio/video is a flash movie, so I don't think you can actually open it in a separate window with a media playback program on your computer. You may, however, be able to interact with the web player by turning off the virtual cursor and tabbing into the web player. At that point, you may be able to play/pause the audio/video with the spacebar, as well as use the arrow keys to rewind, fast forward, and adjust the volume. Good luck!

I know exactly what Keith is talking about. Many times, I will get on ESPN or many other sites, and the video or audio will begin playing.
It seems to be a player that is a part of the website itself. How do you get this audio or video material to play in Windows Media Player, for example. On ESPN and other sites, it just starts playing, and I cannot control it at all. I can't play, pause, or anything like that.
What do you do about this to either be able to control what you are hearing in that website or to be able to over-ride that and get it to play on your default player on the computer? Thanks a lot. Thanks Keith for bringing this up! I better say this LOL, I am using Windows 8.1, JAWS 16, and I am using an Asus laptop 64 bit lol!
