Hello Milton,

 

Sure, I am glad for any assistance.  The web site is adult in nature, so can you email me at ttford@... and I will give that to you.  I am sensitive to those who may be offended, and thus did not include the site address. 

 

Tim

Can you provide the web address where you are trying to get this video to play?

I have tried several times to communicate with the web site tech support, but my emails are never responded to.

If the button is totally invisible I don’t think anybody can mark it. The only option here is to tell the owner of the site about the problem and hope they are open towards making it accessible again. I am not a Jaws scripter, but it might be possible to achieve this also with a script.

Hello All,

 

One of my favorite video streaming sites suddenly changed a few months ago.  Before the sudden change, videos would start automatically, then suddenly they would not.  I had Microsoft’s nice accessibility office remote in to my computer.  The guy was able to immediately spot and click the play button, but I could not figure out where the button was, so I know the cause, but not how to solve it.

 

Is there a way for Microsoft’s remote session person to label the button so JAWS will let me work that button?  Or, is this something that can be done only by a sighted person sitting at my computer?  In either case, how would they mark/label the button?
