Another Youtube issue. On my system, I can hit Control R, and most of the time it will play a song on Youtube.

There are some short cut keys you can use to do everything you mentioned.
Below are details of the shortcut keys from a post not so long back from
another user which is really helpful
There are keyboard shortcuts built into Youtube. If you turn off the virtual
cursor, meaning you can't then use first letter navigation keys, you can
then use the letters j k and l to rewind, play/pause, and fast forward. If
it's Jaws, the keystroke to turn off the virtual cursor is insert Z, and
again to turn it back on. However, if you're listening to a YouTube and all
you really want to do is pause and get up from your seat for a break, then
use the pass through key, which in Jaws is insert 3 on the number row. This
lets Jaws ignore the next key press, so you could just press K to pause the
video. Then when you're ready, use the pass through key again and type K to

I have been a longtime visitor to Youtube, listening to many songs and
watching interviews and videos compatible with many of my interests
including, music, literature and history. Through all this time though, I
didn't use any of the controls: (rewind, fast forward, Pause, Mute etc. I
wasn't sure if they were accessible with my older version of JAWS.
Now that I have JFW16, I want to use Youtube more effectively and access
these controls. A day or so ago, I opened up Youtube through Firefox and
turned off the Virtual Cursor. When I started tabbing around, none of the
above-mentioned controls were referenced: just the standard Youtube links.
Any help/direction is surely appreciated.
