Re: Volume for YouTube with IE11

Bissett, Tom <tom.bissett@...>
 

Hi Maria, Doesn't that change how the machine handles the volume rather than changing the youtube player volume control?

If you have Windows 7 and possibly higher, you can access the YouTube volume as follows.
Go to system tray and find speaker icon and press enter on volume mixer.
Then tab to volume for YouTube and raise or lower with up or down arrows.

I've now confirmed that the solution is to raise the volume on the YouTube page when using IE11. Since this setting is not accessible, it required asking someone with sight.

Re: How to click on a hyperlink in a Word document

If it is a hyperlink, you can probably use JAWS Key or Insert plus F7, to
bring up a list of links in the document.

I believe you can use jawsKey F5 to bring up a list of form fields and the

Hi.

I can't figure out how to click on a hyperlink in Word 2010. I believe mouse
users combine a right-click with the control key. But every time I
experiment with this or that possible equivalent, all I do is add line
breaks.

Anyone know the answer?

Re: Volume for YouTube with IE11

Thanks, Maria, but not on my Win7 system. In that dialog there is an IE volume control, but not one specifically for YouTube. It might show up if I have YouTube running on Firefox, but that wouldn't solve my IE issue.

Re: How to click on a hyperlink in a Word document

Thanks, Tom, but no luck here. It brings up a list, but when I select a link (this document has 22) and tab to and press OK, nothing happens. Besides, I'd like to be able to click on the link, as mouse users can, rather than bring up a list and go through all those steps.

Re: Volume for YouTube with IE11

Bissett, Tom <tom.bissett@...>
 

Hi, the volume slider on the YouTube player can be accessed with IE11 by turning off the virtual cursor then tabbing or in my case shift tabbing until you reach the player controls. When you have tabbed to the player controls tab to the volume slider and the slider will work with the arrow keys as long as you have the virtual cursor turned off. This method also works with the forward and back slider.

Have you tried YourTube, the accessible YouTube web site? It's at

http://www.povidi.com/yourtube/

It uses the accessible player from AFB to play YouTube videos and Channels.
The buttons have shortcut keys. I didn't see a Skip Commercials button, but
I did read something on the site about a lack of ads. Of course, they would
like you to send a small donation if you use the site.

Is there a JAWS keystroke for commercial-skip on Youtube? I know sighted
people can skip ads, but I’ve looked for a button that says “skip,” to no
avail.

Also, unrelated: is there a way to tune in radio online and still use
JAWS, and if so, can the radio volume be reduced enough to still hear the
screen reader well?

Hi All,

If JAWS can read graph information in Excel, does anyone know how accessible it would be to create a graph in Excel and copy it into a Word document? I may need to do this for an Economics class.

the barrel... have you ever considered to join the JAWS scripting ml? not
to shew you away from this ml, but you can pose more technical questions
about scripting snafoos to get assistance from other experienced sdcripters.

Presenting data to blind and visually impaired users seems like a
mostly uninvestigated area, wide open for new research. There is an
annual academic conference called IEEE Vis: http://ieeevis.org/.
Historically, their focus is to present new research in different ways
to visualize data. As far as I know, they have never bitten off the
challenge of presenting data in non-visual ways. But if you have any
pull in the academic community, perhaps you could get some grad
students to research ways to display data non-visually, with the
end-goal of getting their research published through this conference.

Just thinking off the top of my head, I could imagine a bar chart with
items left-to-right (along the x axis) and values along the y axis. We
could use JAWS to read the value for each item, but instead of just
reading numbers, modulate the JAWS speech pitch in accordance with the
value: larger values would be read with a higher pitch, smaller values
with a lower pitch. So, instead of just hearing a bunch of numbers,
you'd hear pitch changes with each number that would allow the user to
immediately place the value relative to other values. The pitch
changes would give you a "picture" of the values relative to each other.

I'm sure that's a pretty naive approach, but as far as I know, no one
has tried it yet. It might be an interesting challenge for the JAWS
scripting language.

Re: YourTube, was speaking of YouTube...

I have used accessible youtube for the past year without issue. It appears to be legal and also seems to have the same or nearly the same video content as youtube itself. And no adds!

Does this site have the same content as Youtube? And is it both safe and legal?

Adrian,
Have you tried YourTube, the accessible YouTube web site? It's at

http://www.povidi.com/yourtube/

It uses the accessible player from AFB to play YouTube videos and Channels.
The buttons have shortcut keys. I didn't see a Skip Commercials button, but
I did read something on the site about a lack of ads. Of course, they would
like you to send a small donation if you use the site.

On the skip commercials button, wait five seconds, then press F5. It works
most of the time, though not all.

Is there a JAWS keystroke for commercial-skip on Youtube? I know sighted
people can skip ads, but I’ve looked for a button that says “skip,” to no
avail.

Also, unrelated: is there a way to tune in radio online and still use
JAWS, and if so, can the radio volume be reduced enough to still hear the
screen reader well?
