Re: Turning on DVS on a video link

Sieghard, I’d very much appreciate help by phone or JAWS tandem.  Obviously what I’m missing is a keystroke to get me to the DVS button or link, as when I try control Z and then d it doesn’t seem to do anything.

Hi Don,


Let me know if  you want some help by phone or, if you feel comfortable after talking to me, via means of Jaws Tandem.

Ashley, I appreciate your instructions, which will help if I use my IPod.  However, my question was focused on my PC.

If you are using your iPad, go to settings. Then go to General and Accessibility. Under, “media, “heading, go to where it says audio descriptions. Make sure this is on bye  going into this and making sure prefer  audio descriptions is on. Text beside this should say something like, “when available, Use audio descriptions. “It’s a little hard to get to, but after you get into settings and general, switch your rotor to headings. Then, just go to the heading that says media. Need anymore help? Right back to me personally, or write back to this group.
Thank you for your question and I hope it helped, me giving detailed instructions.

I’m wondering if someone can help.  When I go to CBC TV’s website and press the link to the video of a TV program, I don’t know how to turn on descriptive video service.  Apparently there’s a button but I can’t find it on my PC connection.  Last week, while away from home, I listened to a CBC TV program using my IPod Touch.  Again, no discernible DVS link but as the program was finishing, lo and behold, a descriptive link was announced, I pressed it and got the last minute with DVS!


Any suggestions?
