Well, that was a good question. Not something I’ve used in a while, but I just put on The Face of Fu manchu and was able to accomplish this by:

Hit ctrl-t

Enter time in hours, minutes, seconds, separated by colons.

Hit enter.

This feature is a little finnicky as compared with, say, the “jump to time or frame or whatever” dialogue in goldWave, which can interpret many different types of values. Looks like you have to enter in the hour amount in single digit, regardless of where you want to go in the video. So for example, for thirty minutes, I type

How do you manage to get the jump to specific time feature to work at all?

 Vlc is my go to player, but unfortunately it doesnt work as well with jaws.

No scripts for VLC, to my knowledge. The programme is quite usable without, but the advanced preferences dialogue doesn't work as well as I would like.

Hi all,

I'm just wondering if there are any scripts ETC that have been developed for use with jaws and the popular VLC media player? I'm coming back to jaws after several years away, from a screenreader that has a great many community addons, one of which is for vlc so am just wondering if we have any scripts for use with this program?

Thanks much,
