Richard,

 

Here are the detailed instructions and key strokes for the YouTube scripts.

 

Using YouTube With JAWS and the Scripts

 

The scripts provide the following commands:

Ctrl+Shift+S Skip Ad. If a video ad is playing and a Skip button is present, this command will click it to make YouTube start playing the actual video requested.

Ctrl+Shift+Space Press the Play/Pause button if present. This works in both virtual cursor mode and forms mode.

Ctrl+Shift+T Say Time. This command will speak the current time position in the playing video as well as the video's length. If a video ad is playing, the times will relate to the ad rather than to the requested video. Note: The current time position is not always kept up to date by YouTube itself but will be updated if the video is paused and restarted or the play position is changed by the user.

Typing Ctrl+Shift+Space twice will force such an update.

Ctrl+Shift+N and Ctrl+Shift+P Move to the next or previous search results page or video. This works in search results, playlists, and wherever a Next and Previous button can be found.

Ctrl+Shift+V Move focus to the volume slider for the currently playing video. This also switches JAWS into forms mode and causes a number of native YouTube keystrokes to become usable.

The following YouTube-native keystrokes work as indicated when JAWS is in forms mode or if the keystrokes are passed through JAWS directly to YouTube, such as with the JAWS "pass next key through" command, Ins+3. As noted in the below list, some YouTube keystrokes require focus to be on the video's volume slider. This list applies at least to the HTML 5 video player and possibly also to the Flash player.

Space (slider focus required) or K Pause, resume, or play the current video. j or l Rewind or fast-forward the video by a few seconds. Digits 1 through 9 and 0 (slider focus required) Jump to a percentage through the video. 0 jumps to the beginning, 1 to 10% through, 2 to 20% through, etc., and 9 to 90% through. , (comma) or . (period) Slow down or speed up the video without changing its pitch. This amounts to simple compression or expansion of the audio and video. Slowing down far enough may stop playback. Up or Down arrows (slider focus required) Turn up or down the volume of the video by increments of 5%. Right and Left arrows, respectively, perform the same actions and also require focus to be on the volume slider. The volume usually defaults to 100%. M Mute or unmute the sound of the video. Beware that the occasional video defaults to muted on starting, though this seems rare. Home (slider focus required) Mute the audio. This is not a toggle like m. End (slider focus required) Unmute the audio and move the volume to 100%. This is not a toggle like m. F Toggle between full screen and normal video size. / (slash) Move focus to the YouTube search box. ' (apostrophe) Pop open and move focus to the Find bar for about four seconds.

How do you use the "youtube shortcuts" mentioned below?  Is it like if you are playing a video you would press, for example, Alt+4" to go to 40% of the way into the video?  That is, are these "shortcuts" initiated with the "Alt" key?

arrows to go fordward o backward, and up or down the volume.

"m" to mute, {k" to pause, and 1 to 9 to go to 10 to 90% of video time. 0 to go to begining.

Re: Refurbished Tablets

 

I think Android is definitely catching up and many consider it a very viable alternative. Check out some of the Podcasts from James Oats on Cool Blind Tech, he bought a Google Pixel phone and seems quite impressed with it. Of course that is also an expensive high-end phone so if I were to buy one I would have pretty high expectations which I would not have if I bought a $39 or even $99 Android tablet.

Sieghard

Buying a refurbished tablet in general, is a perfectly reasonable option

Since this is a Jaws list, I can only assume that you’re looking for something Windows based? I’ve seen sales for  refurbished Surface tablets in the range  of $350 to $500, but at that price, a low end laptop or refurbished laptop may end up giving  you more bang  for your buck.

I know Dell and other companies used to make affordable Windows tablets, but I haven’t kept up to date on that market as I haven’t had the need for one.

With this sort of purchase, you’re going to want  to pay attention to specs. The last thing you’ll want is to be fighting with a sluggish machine while at  the same time trying  to take notes or whatever.

Re: Reading smile emoticons

 

If you buy and install the Leasey scripts the very top left key (to the left of the 1 on the number row) becomes the Leasey key. It is like the Jaws layered keystrokes, you press the Leasey key and then letters or combinations of Control, Shift+Control etc. and letters for various functions/features. For example, if I am composing an email and want to insert an emoticon from the list of Leasey emoticons I press the Leasey Key followed by Control+Shift+E, this brings up the list of emoticons, I can arrow through them or use first letter navigation like "s" to go to "Smile" or "g" to go to "grinning face" and then press enter to insert it. That same key stroke when I am reading an email (where I am not composing, replying or forwarding) will cpy the email address of the sender (the "From" address" to the clipboard.

Re: Refurbished Tablets

I have had success with refurbished electronics and think it is a very cost effective option. Best Buy also has a refurbished section, and you might also consider asking around amongst friends and family for under used equipment you can have or borrow.

Do you have a mobile plan of some kind? I just recently started using an ipad mini when one came for free with my new phone plan. I had no idea how useful it can be. Something like this might be a low cost option for you.

If you have a smart phone, you might consider using it to take notes on. I have done this before and then sent the notes to my laptop to work from. You can email and text to your email account that you check with your phone, or use one of the cloud sharing options like drop box.

I hope you find a method that works well for you.

Re: Refurbished Tablets

Cristóbal
 

Buying a refurbished tablet in general, is a perfectly reasonable option

Whether you’ll be able  to maximize its use for this method...

Since this is a Jaws list, I can only assume that you’re looking for something Windows based? I’ve seen sales for  refurbished Surface tablets in the range  of $350 to $500, but at that price, a low end laptop or refurbished laptop may end up giving  you more bang  for your buck.

I know Dell and other companies used to make affordable Windows tablets, but I haven’t kept up to date on that market as I haven’t had the need for one.

With this sort of purchase, you’re going to want  to pay attention to specs. The last thing you’ll want is to be fighting with a sluggish machine while at  the same time trying  to take notes or whatever.

Hello, everyone.

I am a little green in this area. I was wondering what everyone thinks about purchasing refurbished tablets from somewhere like, say Amazon. I need a tablet for school just to take notes. Then, when I get home, I copy my note files over to my laptop and do the real work there. Thanks for your opinions.

Sophos AntiVirus & Jaws Accessibility

Mike B. <mb69mach1@...>
 

Hi All,
 
I've been hearing a lot about the Sophos antivirus program, & I would like to get some feedback from people that are currently using this program, or have used it in the past.  How does it compare to MSSE, AVG, or any of the other free antivirus programs that people are running?  How accessible is it with Jaws?  We're running Windows 7 Pro, Outlook Express, & Jaws 15 thru 18.  All feedback will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks much.
Take care.

If you have Leasey and whenever you are in an edit area such as email body, Word, Notepad etc. just press the Leasey key followed by Control+Shift+E.

Re: Firefox vs. I.E.

 

Get a Windows 7 machine although I really don’t know why you torcher yourself with computer technology that is a decade old or older. I mean no offense, but considering that you can pick up a decent Windows 7 or Windows 10 laptop or desktop for $500 or $600 (I assume you are in the US) I just don’t get the point. Yes, you would have to also pay to upgrade Jaws, but unless the $1,200 or $1,500 it would take is totally out of your reach to me this doesn’t make sense. Windows XP is wide open to attacks as no security updates have been released in 2 years. I don’t of course know what you do with your computers, but I use mine daily for my business as well as personal use and I could not even do what I need to do on a 10-year old machine let alone I’d be scared to death the hard drive would die any day now and I’d loose a lot of important stuff. Keep in mind this I sjust my opinion. I also still have one old PC desktop at my store which is 9 years old, but it still can run Windows 7 and actually could run Windows 10, but I have already purchased a replacement HP Mini PC for it so there is no point in trying to bother to upgrade it. Apart from that I love Windows 10 and think it’s absolutely the best Microsoft has ever made, Windows 7 had that honour prior to Windows 10 and of course it keeps getting better with every major update.

Firefox and Webvisum work fine together, but you now have to download
Webvisum via the Firefox Add-Ons Manager (in the Tools menu) and not via the
Webvisum website. Go to Tools > Add-Ons Manager, once the page loads, use
Jaws Key+F7 to bring up the list of links on that site and go to "See more
add-ons", it's the last link for me when I just did this. Once that page
loads you have a search box, type in "Webvisum" and press enter. After the
page loads use your heading quicknav keys to find where it says "Search
results for Webvisum" or use Jaws Find and simply search for Webvisum again
on that page. Below the "search results heading you find a link for
"Webvisum requires restart, clickable" and underneath that the explanation "
The ultimate web browsing helper for blind and visually impaired Internet
users!".
Press enter on the Webvisum requires restart and allow the installation,
then Firefox needs to restart and once it does you will be asked for your
user name and password for Webvisum, you can check the box to remember this
and once done Webvisum will always load and you will get signed in when you
start Firefox.

Apart from that I agree with the opinion of others, IE is still my preferred
browser, but I think it is essentials to have at least Firefox on your PC
also as some sites no longer support IE well and I think everybody should
have a Webvisum user name and password and take advantage of this great tool
for solving captchas.

Sieghard

Re: Firefox vs. I.E.

Tom Behler
 

This has been my experience as well. However, I have to admit that I'm
having more problems with the latest version of Firefox. I believe it's
version 50.1.

I am finding that I often have to launch Firefox several times to
successfully navigate certain web sites.

I can get to the start page, but shortly afterwords, Jaws goes silent, and
refreshing the page does no good.

The only way to solve the issue is to exit out of Firefox, and then re-start
the browser.

Not very convenient.
