Re: Netflix Scripting from DoItBlind

Cristóbal
 

Along with the descriptive audio now being provided with Netflix originals, this is much welcomed progress.
The one feature I would really like, is the ability to sync two separate feeds for simultaneous viewing. I.E. if you and a sighted companion or companions wish to watch something together, one feed could be the normal one and the second feed could be the audio described version. Throwing on some headphones like in the theatre and still being able to enjoy a film or series with description with privacy would be a major plus.
I guess the ideal solution would be some sort of iOS or other portable set up with a mobile device or with bluetooth headphones, but I'd even be happy with stringing some headphones to a laptop just to have this ability. Even getting one of those cheapy Windows tablets and a bluetooth headset for more flexibility could be an option.
I don't know if something like this could even be possible. I could only imagine that access would need to be granted to the secondary device's microphone. Similar to how iOS apps function.
I do recall reading a few months ago an article regarding a Chrome add on that enabled the synchronizing of two Netflix feeds for family and friends and long distance relationship viewing. It supposedly took out the hassel of always trying to manually syncing feeds by counting down and allowed folks to pause and rewind and fast forward seemlessly without losing synchronization.
Anyway... one can hope.

Yes, I have the drop down already in programming. Locking down the
volume will take sighted assistance. But I got full screen working in
case you are entertaining.
There are other controls to this thing such as the play pause button
that I need sighted assistance for too. It is coming along nicely.
One thing I am experimenting with is the ability to view all the
playable movies in a single list such as the virtual viewer or probably
the results viewer more liekly since it supports more than links. There
is a ton of stuff you can do with this thing. Few years back and some
programming knowledge learned, it wasn't possible. Now it is within our
reach finally. The language selector is a group box that is readily
viewable and also subtitles can be controlled too.

so far it is going well. naturally I went for the video interface and
controlling it. I can rewind and fast forward with a spoken time code.
Next comes the volume. Other special features will help you navigate
the site and allow you to move seamlessly through the site. Things like
what is viewable right now and the seasons lined up in an easy format.
The code is all UIA which means 15 and up, however to take advantage of
all the perks I have designed this with jaws 17 in mind, though it is
possible to rename things for IE using jaws 15 and up. Nice being able
to move about the movie seamlessly. Couldn't do that before.

Hi all,

About Netflix and accessing the next season of TV shows.



If you, by using the normal left and right arrows on the
keyboard, sit on the letter S of where it states the line Season plus
its number, press enter, then arrow down, you will get to the episodes
of that season. There are work arounds, but if the screen reader
doesn’t say the obvious, they can’t be found. I have windows 10, jaws
17, and I tried this with IE11.



I can see the screen to a degree, and how the screen is
laid out to how jaws often reads it, does not always match.

Using Windows 7, JAWS 16 and Firefox. Full disclosure: I’m
a sited user with screenreader experience. (I prefer Firefox since I
get the best experience with a screenreader)



It seems that Netflix isn’t providing “focus" on content
once selected. For instance, I can navigate the site using a
screenreader by headers and/or links, (I bring up the links list and
look for “Audio Descriptions” and press enter, then I bring up the
links list again and navigate the list of movies that are now
available) but once I find a movie I would like to watch, I press
enter, but can’t access the new menu that drops down to play the
content, it just keeps navigating to the next movie. The work around is
to immediately bring up the headers, navigate to the header that’s
listed and press enter, which then allows me to access the content
within the dropdown (press tab once to access the play link).



TV shows are difficult to navigate as they all state “Play
link” (instead of “play episode 8”) and do not announce the episode
without using the arrow keys (press down a couple of times to hear more
about the episode). For TV seasons there is a dropdown button to change
seasons using the mouse, but I can’t locate the button with a
screenreader without using the virtual cursor, and I can’t access the
dropdown menu with a keyboard at all. You can access other episodes
using the “see previous titles Button” and “see more titles Button”
(bring up the form fields list to easily find these), but this is only
for the season displayed.



I hope this helps some.

Dear Netflix,



I am blind, and use a Windows 7 laptop. Up until a
week or so ago, your web site was extremely hard to navigate, but at
least I could start a video. Now, after your web page design changes
implemented a few days ago, I cannot even start a video.



I am using the latest update of JAWS version 16; JAWS
is the world’s most widely used screen reading software for the blind.
I tried accessing your service with IE, Firefox, and Chrome, but could
not get a video to start. With IE, I cannot even activate my profile.



I am a fairly experienced Internet user, and if there
is a way to navigate your site with a screen reader, I have not figured
it out. I am using the recommended common settings for JAWS, and I
have no problems with some other video streaming services.



Back a few weeks ago, Netflix announced the addition
of audio description. That is a great move, and I applaud you for
that. However, in a very ironic twist, it is not possible for a blind
person to select the audio described version, even though one is on the
part of your site that contains only audio described programs. Why add
that extra step? If one is on the audio description page, the user
obviously wants the audio described version, so why not make that the
default?



In general, there seems to be a huge gap between your
marketing department and the technology group. Netflix marketing is
advertising this new and wonderful audio description service, but a
blind person simply cannot navigate the site, especially after the
rollout of your new web page design.



In closing, I am using a Windows laptop, and I do not
have a smart phone. The issues I am asking you to please fix are just
for us old-fashioned blind folks using a Windows computer.



I know from experience that screen reader
accessibility is a very narrow specialty and skill set, so if you do
not have such an expert on staff, you could either hire one or contract
with one of the accessibility consultant experts that will help you
become and stay accessible.



I am happy to volunteer by helping you test any
changes; I have done that in the past for a number of web service
companies. Please advise, and much thanks.



Sincerely,

Tim Ford

Re: Windows 10 question

 

Hi,

Press Windows+Pause to open System settings, then use JAWS cursor to read the screen contents (one of them should say “Windows Edition”). You can keep using JAWS 17, but I heard reports that it might be necessary to repair your JAWS installation.

The express settings turns on several features, including sending certain data to Microsoft to improve your Windows 10 experience. I and other Windows 10 users recommend not using express settings when installing Windows 10 (we did have a discussion about this on the Windows 10 list, which can be found at http://groups.io/g/win10).

Hi Lauren,

You can upgrade without sighted help. You should install JAWS 17 first. Then, download the Tool from FS that will allow you to get rid of all previous JAWS versions from your computer along with shared components. The only version you should have on your computer is Version 17. If you want, You could also have version 16.0.1214. That will also work on Windows 10. Also, you will want to download the media creation tool from the MS page and save it to your computer. Make sure that you don’t run the media creation tool until you run that FS tool to get rid all versions of JAWS off your computer except 16.0.1214 and JAWS 17. Now, you can run the media creation tool to install win 10. Just press enter on the tool and press enter on upgrade this pc. JAWS will still be working. Once you get through some screens, JAWS will go quiet and this is when you wait an hour or more to let win10 download to your computer. It is around 3 gigs. After an hour, just turn on Narrator by pressing windows key + enter. You will be able to finish the install with Narrator. Now, since you have Windows 8, it should install fine after the first time. It is upgrading from Windows 7 that causes the trouble and it takes a few times. I upgraded from Windows 8.1, and it took me one time of running the media creation tool, and win10 installed great the first time. This is really important. When win10 installs and JAWS comes back talking, it is good to uninstall JAWS and reinstall JAWS. If you do this, even upgrading from win 8 or 8.1, you will get much better results from JAWS from then on out. Please email me if you have any questions. It is easy, and once win10 is on your computer, I can really help you get everything adjusted so you have the best experience using win10. You will love it and never want to go back. I will be thinking about you as you upgrade. Email me as soon as you have any questions. Take care, David Moore.

if you haven't been following the threads so far, now you can make
suggestions as to what you'd like to see. This is a groups effort as to
what you'd like to do. I am eager to take on even the most complex of
suggestions. It is amazing as to what can be done at this point. One
thing I have not checked out is if netflix is in multiple languages.
Netflix blind is best for multi-lingual solutions from the get go and
can be translated by anyone as all my scripts do this now. To make
things clear, I see the background objects and can decipher them in
lists, result viewer, and more. Just knowing what you want is what I am
here for. I tried hard in the past and failed miserably, but now I have
the power of the code on my side now. JAWS 17 is easier to install the
scripts, but jaws 15 and up can participate with a little installing
process. This script is a power house so far and will continue to get
better in time for christmas. I am waiting on other projects to work
through, but in my spare time I will read all your suggestions and make
room for it all. Already in process is full control over the player
built into netflix. This is where I failed before, but after a few hours
of playing around, I soon found it to be completely accessible. Once
this is tackled, I will jump to the other helpful scripts that will take
over netflix. You can activate things without even being near the object
such as a play button or in another results or list dialog. It just
dpends on what your imagination can take you. So speak up, now is the time.

Sincerely,

I don’t know if you have used Siri with an iPhone, but it is Windows 10’s equivalent. You can ask it questions and the like. I haven’t set it up and it isn’t bothering anybody.

Hi,

 

What is Cortana and do I need it using Jaws or should I uninstall it and if so, how do I do that?

 

Any helpful hints that I need to know about Windows 10 and Jaws 17 would be much appreciated.

 

I think I read from David that I need to uninstall Jaws 17 and reinstall it, is that right?

 

Thank you.

 

 

Sincerely,

How do I know when windows 10 is done installing? Jaws  came back on. The sounds I have to open and close programs keeps going on and on so I am uncertain. Is there way I can check their windows 10 is the operating system on my PC? Was I correct to choose express settings? Now do I need to uninstall Jaws  17 and reinstall it?

Hi Lauren,
You can upgrade without sighted help. You should install JAWS 17 first. Then, download the Tool from FS that will allow you to get rid of all previous JAWS versions from your computer along with shared components. The only version you should have on your computer is Version 17. If you want, You could also have version 16.0.1214. That will also work on Windows 10. Also, you will want to download the media creation tool from the MS page and save it to your computer. Make sure that you don’t run the media creation tool until you run that FS tool to get rid all versions of JAWS off your computer except 16.0.1214 and JAWS 17. Now, you can run the media creation tool to install win 10. Just press enter on the tool and press enter on upgrade this pc. JAWS will still be working. Once you get through some screens, JAWS will go quiet and this is when you wait an hour or more to let win10 download to your computer. It is around 3 gigs. After an hour, just turn on Narrator by pressing windows key + enter. You will be able to finish the install with Narrator. Now, since you have Windows 8, it should install fine after the first time. It is upgrading from Windows 7 that causes the trouble and it takes a few times. I upgraded from Windows 8.1, and it took me one time of running the media creation tool, and win10 installed great the first time. This is really important. When win10 installs and JAWS comes back talking, it is good to uninstall JAWS and reinstall JAWS. If you do this, even upgrading from win 8 or 8.1, you will get much better results from JAWS from then on out. Please email me if you have any questions. It is easy, and once win10 is on your computer, I can really help you get everything adjusted so you have the best experience using win10. You will love it and never want to go back. I will be thinking about you as you upgrade. Email me as soon as you have any questions. Take care, David Moore.

Hi:

 

Now I have Win8, Jaws 14. Can I upgrade to Jaws 17 and then install Windows 10 myself or do I need sighted help? Is it ok to install Jaws first?

 

 

 

Sincerely,
