Hi,
As Kestrell and others have pointed out, you can run into various problems with PDF's. For best results generally, use Adobe Acrobat Reader rather than one of the browser PDF readers. And you can read about the vvarious issues encountered and how to deal with them in Chapter 10 of my book.

Hi Nancy,  I think the dictionary solution is quite good. I made it have a chime rather than silence. The trick was the entry in the dictionary isn't the word "bullet" but needs to be the symbol •.  I got that symbol by going to a bulleted list, and then going to the Speech History.


moderated Freedom Scientific info on cursors, was: youtube keystrokes

Kestrel Verlager <kestrell@...>
 

Freedom Scientific has an archived webinar titled "So Many Cursors, So
Little Time," which explains about all the Jaws cursors. Here is the info
and the link:

So Many Cursors, So Little Time, Understanding Cursors in JAWS
May 21, 2020

Let's see, there's the PC cursor, the Virtual PC cursor, the Scan cursor,
the JAWS cursor, and even an Invisible cursor. Ever wondered why there are
so many cursors in JAWS? Want greater access to information on the screen?
Want to know where and when to use a specific cursor? Then listen to So Many
Cursors, So Little Time, Understanding Cursors in JAWS.

During this session, we'll give you:

An overview of each cursor and its function
Instructions for activating each cursor
Benefits of using each cursor and more

There are links to two formats for listening and one set of downloadable
resource files:

Hi, Karen. No, the Virtual Cursor is not the same as the JAWS Cursor. JAWS
cursor is accessed with the minus key on the NumPad, or in laptop keyboard
mode, CAPS LOCK+P. To return to the PC Cursor, press the plus on the NumPad,
or CAPS LOCK+SEMICOLON, in laptop keyboard mode. Most of the time, you want
to leave the Virtual Cursor on with JAWS key plus Z, and remain in Virtual
Cursor mode, when in your browser. the confusing thing is, when you are in a
browser like Google Chrome, pressing the plus key on the NumPad will say
Virtual Cursor. When not in a browser, pressing the plus key on the NumPad
will say PC Cursor. This is because, when in Google Chrome or Microsoft,
JAWS and the browser automatically switch to Virtual Cursor Mode. So, unless
you are trying to navigate Youtube with the previously mentioned YouTube
keyboard commands, you want your Virtual Cursor to remain on (JAWS Key plus
Z should say Use Virtual Cursor on), when in Google Chrome or Microsoft
Edge. If you turn your Virtual Cursor off when in the browser, you won't be
able to navigate the webpage.

Hello.

You can find this stuff explained in the JAWS manual, but perhaps it helps
to get a more hands-on sort of perspective.
The pC cursor is the actual system focus. When you move it around, you are
moving the actual system cursor (nB, n ot the mouse pointer). When you are
moving around in a word document and want to make an edit, you are using the
pC cursor. When you are tabbing around a programme interface or making
selections in a standard dialogue box, you are moving the pC cursor and it
is directly interacting with the controls.
The virtual cursor is just that -- it is normally not visible on screen, and
it is exclusively useful in situations where the screen-reader creates a
buffer that you can move around in using this cursor *without* directly
interacting with anything unless you directly click on a link or button. You
can't edit text in virtual mode; the so-called "forms mode" in jaws is
really just turning off the virtual cursor and placing your PC cursor in an
edit field where you can type. Most often you will see the virtual cursor
using a web browser or PDF document, where it is active by default. However
you can turn it on in other programmes as well, or put the contents of a
window into a virtual buffer, where you can easily read the text therein and
copy it to the clipboard if you need to. Using the pC cursor, you can only
copy text if it's specifically in an edit field.
Hopefully that all didn't just muddy the waters even further.

Thanks for posting all this. One other point that should mention that for
these KB commands to work is that we, JAWS users, have to press insert+t to
get out of the virtual mode.
This, by far, is the most complete list I've seen on this topic and includes
something I have been curious to play with, that "c" command for bringing up
the caption mode.
What I am hoping to discover is whether this will allow for clipping of text

And, oh yes, Madison, thanks for raising the question which prompted Bill's

Hi,

I've never been clear on what exactly the difference between the Virtual
cursor vursus the PC cursors are. Can anyone offer an explanation or
description of the differences between them?

Thanks.

Thanks for posting all this. One other point that should mention that for
these KB commands to work is that we, JAWS users, have to press insert+t to
get out of the virtual mode.
This, by far, is the most complete list I've seen on this topic and includes
something I have been curious to play with, that "c" command for bringing up
the caption mode.
What I am hoping to discover is whether this will allow for clipping of text
from a video for quick easy review and searching later offline and for
saving of the info in a text searchable form.
And, oh yes, Madison, thanks for raising the question which prompted Bill's
thorough list.

Hey Madison.

If you use the keystrokes given, you don't need to find the buttons. That is
the beauty of using keystrokes instead of hunting around for things on the
screen.
You do however need to make sure your virtaul cursor is off, or, I guess,
use the trick mentioned earlier of hitting space on the seek slider area,
but that doesn't really seem to be of great advantage to me, since the point
of the keystrokes is that they're there always regardless of your position
in a window.

Hi, Madison. Check out the following.


YouTube Shortcuts

Pause and Resume Video

Let's start with the most common and useful YouTube keyboard shortcuts. You
can press the Spacebar while watching a video to pause it. You can also
press the Spacebar to resume a paused video. What many people don't know,
however, is that you can get the same results using the K key.

Skip Forward or Backward

Another set of well known YouTube keyboard shortcut keys are the forward
arrow and backward arrow keys. The video skips 5 seconds ahead or behind
depending on the arrow key. And once again, here's something not many people
know.

You can also forward or rewind a YouTube video in 10 second increments by
pressing the J and L keys.

Skip to a Different Point or Repeat

That's not all that YouTube offers in the way of keyboard navigation. You
can actually jump to a specific part of the video. A YouTube video, no
matter how long, is divided into ten parts. From the number row on your
keyboard, you can press any key from 0 to 9 to jump to the specific parts.

For instance, pressing 0 will bring you to the start of the video, i.e.
repeat the video.
Pressing 5 will bring you to the exact middle of the video.
Press 9 and you will jump to the last 10th of the video.

Speed Up or Slow Down YouTube Video

YouTube has a lot of videos of just people talking. Sometimes they talk
really fast while sometimes they talk really slow. Luckily, you can speed up
or slow down YouTube videos rather easily. This functionality isn't made
obvious. But you can get to these controls by clicking on the gear icon and
selecting Playback speed. That requires at least 3 clicks. A much easier way
to speed up or slow down YouTube videos is to use YouTube keyboard shortcut
keys.

How to Speed Up or Slow Down YouTube video

YouTube offers 8 playback speed options: 0.25x, 0.50x, 0.75x, Normal, 1.25x,
1.5x, 1.75x, 2.0x. You can switch between these using the following shortcut
keys.

Shift + . or >
Shift + , or <

Navigate YouTube Video Frame by Frame

If you thought the ability to speed up or slow down a YouTube video was
impressive, prepare to be surprised. YouTube also lets you go through a
video frame by frame.
First, you have to pause the video, which you can do using Spacebar or K.
Next, press the . (Period) to go forward a frame or press the , (comma) to
go back a frame.

You can also hold down either of these keys to watch the video is super slow
motion in either direction.

Raise or Lower Volume

Most keyboards have some media controls keys to control things such as
volume.
These are almost always smaller than the other keys and fixated on the top
row where you have to look down and find them.

Luckily, the online YouTube video player has its own volume control with
YouTube keyboard shortcuts. You can control it using the up arrow key to
raise the volume or down arrow key to lower the volume.

Mute YouTube Video

This is another useful YouTube keyboard shortcut but not many know about it.
You can actually mute or unmute a YouTube video by pressing the M key.

Play the Next Video or Previous Video

YouTube always has a list of suggestions whether Autoplay is on or not. If
the video you're currently watching fails to hold your attention, you can
completely skip it and move to the next one on the list. To do this you just
have to use the Shift + N YouTube keyboard shortcut keys. This also works if
you're watching a playlist. In a playlist, you can even go back to the
previous video by pressing Shift + P.

Select Search Box

While watching a video on YouTube you can simply press "/" and start typing
your search query. Pressing the "/" key brings the search bar into focus.
You can also select search suggestions using the arrow keys and hit Enter to
run the selected search. This is mighty convenient because you never have to
use your mouse or slide on the trackpad to click on the search bar.

Switch to Fullscreen

While playing a YouTube video you can simply press the F key to switch to
full screen. If the video is already in full screen, pressing F will switch
it back to the normal view.

You can also press the F11 on the keyboard to toggle between Fullscreen
modes in Windows PCs.

Enable or Disable Closed Captions

Many YouTube videos have auto-generated closed captions for people with a
hearing disability. Closed captions are also helpful when you're in an
environment where you can't really rely on audio. They're also helpful if
you're watching something in a language you don't fully understand, or maybe
you don't get the accent.

You can turn on or turn off closed captions with YouTube keyboard shortcuts
by simply pressing "C" on the keyboard.

Open YouTube Mini-Player in the Bottom Right


YouTube mini-player keyboard shortcuts

Another cool feature not many people know about on YouTube is the YouTube
mini-player. Yes, you can actually continue to browse YouTube while your
video plays without having to open another tab or anything. Press I while
the video is playing to move the video into the bottom right corner.

So, there they are, some of the most useful YouTube keyboard shortcut keys
that we found. Whether you are a power user, a nerd, or a regular Joe who is
used to clicking things, these YouTube shortcut keys above should prove very
useful.

You can actually search for it while the video is playing. You can also

Hi all,
I was just wondering, are there any keystrokes for using Youtube (watching
videos) with Jaws? Using latest versions of Edge, Jaws and Windows 11.

Thanks Bill, my only other question is how do I find the play button in the
first place? I don't know how many times I've clicked on a link for a video and
then either the play button disappears or I can't find it period.

Hi, Madison. Check out the following.


YouTube Shortcuts

Pause and Resume Video

Let's start with the most common and useful YouTube keyboard shortcuts. You can
press the Spacebar while watching a video to pause it. You can also press the
Spacebar to resume a paused video. What many people don't know, however, is that
you can get the same results using the K key.

Skip Forward or Backward

Another set of well known YouTube keyboard shortcut keys are the forward arrow
and backward arrow keys. The video skips 5 seconds ahead or behind depending on
the arrow key. And once again, here's something not many people know.

You can also forward or rewind a YouTube video in 10 second increments by
pressing the J and L keys.

Skip to a Different Point or Repeat

That's not all that YouTube offers in the way of keyboard navigation. You can
actually jump to a specific part of the video. A YouTube video, no matter how
long, is divided into ten parts. From the number row on your keyboard, you can
press any key from 0 to 9 to jump to the specific parts.

For instance, pressing 0 will bring you to the start of the video, i.e.
repeat the video.
Pressing 5 will bring you to the exact middle of the video.
Press 9 and you will jump to the last 10th of the video.

Speed Up or Slow Down YouTube Video

YouTube has a lot of videos of just people talking. Sometimes they talk really
fast while sometimes they talk really slow. Luckily, you can speed up or slow
down YouTube videos rather easily. This functionality isn't made obvious. But
you can get to these controls by clicking on the gear icon and selecting
Playback speed. That requires at least 3 clicks. A much easier way to speed up
or slow down YouTube videos is to use YouTube keyboard shortcut keys.

How to Speed Up or Slow Down YouTube video

YouTube offers 8 playback speed options: 0.25x, 0.50x, 0.75x, Normal, 1.25x,
1.5x, 1.75x, 2.0x. You can switch between these using the following shortcut
keys.

Shift + . or >
Shift + , or <

Navigate YouTube Video Frame by Frame

If you thought the ability to speed up or slow down a YouTube video was
impressive, prepare to be surprised. YouTube also lets you go through a video
frame by frame.
First, you have to pause the video, which you can do using Spacebar or K.
Next, press the . (Period) to go forward a frame or press the , (comma) to go
back a frame.

You can also hold down either of these keys to watch the video is super slow
motion in either direction.

Raise or Lower Volume

Most keyboards have some media controls keys to control things such as volume.
These are almost always smaller than the other keys and fixated on the top row
where you have to look down and find them.

Luckily, the online YouTube video player has its own volume control with YouTube
keyboard shortcuts. You can control it using the up arrow key to raise the
volume or down arrow key to lower the volume.

Mute YouTube Video

This is another useful YouTube keyboard shortcut but not many know about it.
You can actually mute or unmute a YouTube video by pressing the M key.

Play the Next Video or Previous Video

YouTube always has a list of suggestions whether Autoplay is on or not. If the
video you're currently watching fails to hold your attention, you can completely
skip it and move to the next one on the list. To do this you just have to use
the Shift + N YouTube keyboard shortcut keys. This also works if you're watching
a playlist. In a playlist, you can even go back to the previous video by
pressing Shift + P.

Select Search Box

While watching a video on YouTube you can simply press "/" and start typing your
search query. Pressing the "/" key brings the search bar into focus.
You can also select search suggestions using the arrow keys and hit Enter to run
the selected search. This is mighty convenient because you never have to use
your mouse or slide on the trackpad to click on the search bar.

Switch to Fullscreen

While playing a YouTube video you can simply press the F key to switch to full
screen. If the video is already in full screen, pressing F will switch it back
to the normal view.

You can also press the F11 on the keyboard to toggle between Fullscreen modes in
Windows PCs.

Enable or Disable Closed Captions

Many YouTube videos have auto-generated closed captions for people with a
hearing disability. Closed captions are also helpful when you're in an
environment where you can't really rely on audio. They're also helpful if you're
watching something in a language you don't fully understand, or maybe you don't
get the accent.

You can turn on or turn off closed captions with YouTube keyboard shortcuts by
simply pressing "C" on the keyboard.

Open YouTube Mini-Player in the Bottom Right

Hey Eileen.

I think that's understandable. The jAWS cursor can go places the pC cursor
won't go because it's normally n ot restricted to places where you can enter
text or activatea button. But it isn't very useful in many applications. An
interesting thign about the JAWS cursor though is that it is equivalent to
the mouse pointer. The mouse pointer can also go places in the window the PC
cursor can't reach. That's why when you have the JAWS cursor in certain
places in a window you can click the mouseo r use the corresponding nupad
buttons to activate the mouse.

Hi JM,

Thank you. That was actually very good. I suppose I've had it mixed up
because I've always thought that it was the purpose of the Jaws cursor to
act/do what you describe the virtual cursor doing.

Hello.

You can find this stuff explained in the JAWS manual, but perhaps it helps
to get a more hands-on sort of perspective.
The pC cursor is the actual system focus. When you move it around, you are
moving the actual system cursor (nB, n ot the mouse pointer). When you are
moving around in a word document and want to make an edit, you are using the
pC cursor. When you are tabbing around a programme interface or making
selections in a standard dialogue box, you are moving the pC cursor and it
is directly interacting with the controls.
The virtual cursor is just that -- it is normally not visible on screen, and
it is exclusively useful in situations where the screen-reader creates a
buffer that you can move around in using this cursor *without* directly
interacting with anything unless you directly click on a link or button. You
can't edit text in virtual mode; the so-called "forms mode" in jaws is
really just turning off the virtual cursor and placing your PC cursor in an
edit field where you can type. Most often you will see the virtual cursor
using a web browser or PDF document, where it is active by default. However
you can turn it on in other programmes as well, or put the contents of a
window into a virtual buffer, where you can easily read the text therein and
copy it to the clipboard if you need to. Using the pC cursor, you can only
copy text if it's specifically in an edit field.
Hopefully that all didn't just muddy the waters even further.

Hi,

I've never been clear on what exactly the difference between the Virtual
cursor vursus the PC cursors are. Can anyone offer an explanation or
description of the differences between them?

Thanks.

Eileen

Thanks for posting all this. One other point that should mention that for
these KB commands to work is that we, JAWS users, have to press insert+t to
get out of the virtual mode.
This, by far, is the most complete list I've seen on this topic and includes
something I have been curious to play with, that "c" command for bringing up
the caption mode.
What I am hoping to discover is whether this will allow for clipping of text
from a video for quick easy review and searching later offline and for
saving of the info in a text searchable form.
And, oh yes, Madison, thanks for raising the question which prompted Bill's
thorough list.
