Have you tried YourTube, the accessible YouTube web site? It's at

It uses the accessible player from AFB to play YouTube videos and Channels. The buttons have shortcut keys. I didn't see a Skip Commercials button, but I did read something on the site about a lack of ads. Of course, they would like you to send a small donation if you use the site.

On the skip commercials button, wait five seconds, then press F5. It works most of the time, though not all.

Is there a JAWS keystroke for commercial-skip on Youtube? I know sighted people can skip ads, but I’ve looked for a button that says “skip,” to no avail.

Also, unrelated: is there a way to tune in radio online and still use JAWS, and if so, can the radio volume be reduced enough to still hear the screen reader well?
