moderated Re: Jaws and the MLB TV/Gameday Audio controls

Michal Nowicki

Dennis and All,


I have two additional tips for accessing MLB TV with JAWS. First, the site is no longer optimized for Internet Explorer. When I use IE I get the same sluggish performance Dennis gets, but when I use Chrome, everything loads much faster. MLB customer service confirmed that IE is no longer supported.


Second, I have found it much easier to interact with media players generally by turning off the virtual cursor by pressing JAWS key plus z (insert z in my case and by default). When the virtual cursor is off, you can tab through the page elements, and once you land inside the media player, the spacebar will toggle play/pause, the up and down arrow keys will adjust the volume, and the left and right arrows will rewind and fast forward, respectively. Please let us know if turning off the virtual cursor has this effect in the MLB TV media player.

Hi, Maria. If you don’t want the page to refresh,

1. Press the JAWSkey plus V to enter quick settings.

2. In the search box, type the word refresh.

3. Arrow down to Page refresh.

4. Press the SPACE BAR until it says Page refresh off.

5. TAB to OK, and press ENTER.


The page won’t refresh anymore.

As I have said before, once I enter on the game I want, by pressing the b for buttons, I get to the unlabeled volume and pause buttons, where the pause button seem to work.  By doing this, the page doesn't seem to keep on refreshing, but if it does, you can always move away from the page so as not to hear it refreshing any longer.

I found that if I set a place marker for the “Broadcast button”, then up arrow to “unlabeled0 button”, I can hit space and mute and unmute the game.  I mute it between innings, so I don’t have to listen to the ads.

Jaws keeps updating the screen, so I keep hearing “ 1 Region, 6 headings, and 64 links” about every 30 seconds.

I wrote a script that toggles speech off and on with a press of the F12 key, so I don’t have to listen to that.  Disabling screen updates doesn’t seem to work consistently.

if you are listening to a live game the buttons don't do anything. if you are listening to an archived game the 0 button is pause and play, the 1 button is rewind and the 2 button is forward. in settings i have the two choices that are there turned off so there isn't a bunch of stats on the screen. hope this helps.

Does anyone have any tips on setting the Major League Baseball TV Gameday Audio site to work better with speech?

The controls are Unlabled0 button, Unlabeled1 button, Unlabeled0 button, etc.

And it updates about every 15 seconds.

When I set place markers, they don’t work the next time I’m on the site.

Whenever I’m on the site itself, not the Gameday audio site, each keystroke takes around 15 seconds to execute, such as up arrow, down arrow, Tab, etc.

The Gameday audio page worked fine until they combined it with the MLB TV page

I’m using the latest JAWS and IE11 with Windows 10.
