Re: getting audio to play on default player

I haven't tried the j and l shortcuts, but using the arrow keys to rewind,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
fast forward, and adjust the volume, as well as spacebar to toggle
play/pause, works for me on all of the video streaming sites I access
regularly. This includes not only flash-based content, but also videos that
use the Microsoft Silverlight plugin, where turning off the virtual cursor
is the only way to access the media player. That is because the web player
controls don't appear in the virtual buffer at all. Although I can't
confirm this, I strongly suspect that the keyboard shortcuts mentioned above
(perhaps with the exception of j and l) are Flash Player and Silverlight
shortcuts, not web page specific keystrokes.

Turn off the vertual cursor by the command: JAWS Key plus Z
If it is a YouTube video you can usually do it the following way.
Find either the percent slider on the web page, or find the mute button. Do
not click the button. Once you find the button, press JAWS Key plus Z to
turn off the vertual cursor. Once the cursor is off, use either the j key to
rewind, or the l key to forward. Often you can also use the left and right
arrows to accomplish the same thing. Also, up and down arrows raise and
This usually doesn't work on other video services besides YouTube, however.

Thanks. This is worth a try. How do I turn off the virtual cursor? Keith
a flash movie, so I don't think you can actually open it in a separate
on your default player on the computer? Thanks a lot. Thanks Keith for
and I am using an Asus laptop 64 bit lol!
