Netflix blind command over player controls

John Martyn
 

Yes, we now have control over the player. You can play pause, fast forward and rewind, change volume, max to full screen, change audio and subtitles. Funny thing is, jaws reads the subtitles too! I don't think we want it to read the subtitles, but if you wanted to capture them it might be useful. I think this would be illegal though since it is copyrighted material. I don't think netflix would like that spreading around easily. There is now a shortcut to get to searching and settings in netflix. There is something that reports the second grouping of items with descriptions and allows you to select. Same with third group of items as well. I am still tweaking things around, but things will improve quickly as I decide what is important as a feature. Any suggestions so far?
Thanks,
John Martyn

Use insert-1 to invoke the key describer. The same to get keyboard back to normal.

Minimal, though the OS and version of Office software you have installed are pretty well meaningless at this stage. If you can grasp the basics of HTML, and there are more than a few tutorials about if you can't, then you've got it better than most. From install to daily use, WP's very accessible. The actual install process doesn't take more than maybe 5 minutes. It's entirely web-based, and surprisingly very well done.
