Re: speaking of YouTube...

Hi, 
I went to this website…it sounds great, but how do I use it? I couldn’t find anything to download, an app or whatever…I think I did hear something on the home page about search, but I sort of like to browse around youTube, looking for something interesting, or only have a vague idea of what I’m searching for…
any advice from those who use the yourTube? 
Also, does it work with Mac and VoiceOver? 
thanks. 
Alice

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

http://www.povidi.com/yourtube/

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?
