If you are using your iPad, go to settings. Then go to General and Accessibility. Under, “media, “heading, go to where it says audio descriptions. Make sure this is on bye  going into this and making sure prefer  audio descriptions is on. Text beside this should say something like, “when available, Use audio descriptions. “It’s a little hard to get to, but after you get into settings and general, switch your rotor to headings. Then, just go to the heading that says media. Need anymore help? Right back to me personally, or write back to this group.
Thank you for your question and I hope it helped, me giving detailed instructions.

Re: Turning on DVS on a video link

 

Don,

 

If the virtual cursor is off you don’t have to arrow or tab or anything, just press the letter “d”, press enter for play or pause etc., it works well for me.

Sieghard, thanks for the link to the help article.  I tried JAWS key plus z and got virtual cursor, then JAWS read nothing.  On the CBC Gems page I arrowed around but could not find the DVS or CC icons.

Here is a little help article I found:

 

Activating described video on CBC Gem

 

Should you wish to activate described video on gem.cbc.ca, simply click on the "D))" icon which appears at the bottom of the viewing screen, as shown below:

Please note that the described video will only activate 5 - 10 seconds after clicking on this icon, so it is important that you click on it once (and only once), and wait.

Similarly, should you wish to deactivate described video, you will need to click on the icon once, and wait for 5 - 10 seconds for the change to take effect.

 

Of course this means clicking on an icon, but pressing D without the virtual cursor active will do the same as clicking the icon.

I found that described audio started playing almost instantly and pressing D again turned it off almost instantly, but I do have a very fast fiber connection and I assume they mention the 5 to 10 seconds in cases where people have a slower internet connection.

 

The below CBC Help webpage goes into a bit more detail and lists available keyboard shortcuts for turning described video on/off, also for closed captioning, turning volume up or down or fast forwarding/rewinding:

 

Tips for using the video player

 

I would still recommend you try the free CBC Gem app on your iPod Touch.

Hi Don,

 

I tried this link, but when the website loads and I click on Watch Full Episodes of Coronation Street, I am redirected to the CBC ?Gem website.

The trick here is to turn of the virtual PC cursor with Jaws Key + Z, then tab to the episode you want to listen to and press enter. If it starts playing press “d” for “described” and audio descriptions will start.

Space or enter will pause/play.

Re: Navigating tables in Chrome

 

That still won’t do anything if a table on a website is not marked up properly. It’s like the following example, try to navigate the below with table navigation:

 

Description        Quantity              Price      Total

Test item 1         2             $10.00  $20.00

Test item 2         1             $50.00  $50.00

Test item 3         5             $5.00    $25.00

 

Now try this one:

 

Description

Quantity

Price

Total

Test item 1

2

$10.00

$20.00

Test item 2

1

$50.00

$50.00

Test item 3

5

$5.00

$25.00

 

The second table was properly done as a table, the other one was just typed and while visually it lines up and all that, it is not a table and if a table on a website is not correctly designed it just won’t read.

Have you tried using the JAWS table navigation commands.  Insert plus space followed by the letter T for table.  You have to be in the table before you use the keystroke.  Then you can use the up and down arrow keys to navigate by row, and left and right arrow keys to move through the different columns.

Hello:

Any ideas on how to better navigate items in tables on Chrome web sites.

Currently, arrowing up or down moves through each item in a row until the end of a row then goes to the next row.  If the table is large, this can take a good bit of time.

Tried using the control + windows key + j command to jump to the row and column coordinates, but does not seem to work in these tables.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Re: On button in Wikipedia articles

 

Kevin,

           While I do not doubt a thing you've said, it would still be very peculiar for a developer to do anything that would identify a button with a checked/unchecked property.  No matter what's actually causing the issue, eventually it needs to be fixed, as it's a case of what's being reported mixing the proverbial apples and oranges.

Re: How do I find where files are being saved?

 

Randy has given a very good suggestion.  I use the Everything search by voidtools.com on a constant basis.  I like it much better than the Windows 10 built-in search, even with Cortana neutered, as I generally search based on file name and file name alone.

That being said, the location of where a file is being saved, whether in a straight Save or Save As, should be easy to ferret out in the dialog itself.

If you've recently saved one of these documents then try opening it again using the "recent" list in Acrobat.  Even that may get you the information you need.  But if it doesn't, when you do a Save As, the dialog is going to show the current location of the file about to be "saved as" so you can know where it is located.

Re: On button in Wikipedia articles

Kevin Meyers <kevinmeyers@...>
 

I just have completed a web development class. During the class it was discussed that not all browsers will interpret the html the same way. For the most part they will. If you want to look at the html just press control u. You might be able to find where the button is setup. The code should be using aria attributes to help a browser work better with screen readers.

This is a weird and interesting situation.  There are a number of controls that present to me, by vision, as links, but that which NVDA (and, I'd have to presume JAWS) don't land on, but instead land on the button equivalent that is entirely hidden from view.   That, in and of itself, is not all that unusual, as there are often invisible controls on web pages placed there specifically to serve accessibility needs.

What is peculiar, though, is that if I go to the first button, which is a hidden Hide button for the Contents list, and activate it, the contents list disappears, as expected, the link I see changes to "show," and the hidden button I just activated is changed to a Show button.   In Chrome, I just keep getting Hide/Show announced as I toggle the button state by activating it, however, in Firefox I'm getting the announcement, "Show button, Checked," (or Unchecked) as I toggle the state back and forth between Hide and show.  It's really, really peculiar for a button to be announced as checked or unchecked, as that's not a property associated with a button.  It works just like I'd expect it to, either making content shown or visible, but I have absolutely no idea why the "checked/unchecked" bit is being announced and why what's being exposed to the screen reader appears to be different in Chrome versus Firefox for this sort of control.

I never have encountered an "On" button, though.

Re: Turning on DVS on a video link

 

Could you send a link of one of the programs?

I usually just go to cbc.ca, then / and the name of whatever program I want.  When I did phone the CBC, I was told there’s a button to press to turn on DVS, but I couldn’t find it.  I only used my IPod Touch once, when away from home, and that’s when the DVS link appeared near the end of the video being played.

Hi Don,

 

Could you provide a bit more information about where exactly you go? Are you on https://gem.cbc.ca

Subject: Turning on DVS on a video link

 

I’m wondering if someone can help.  When I go to CBC TV’s website and press the link to the video of a TV program, I don’t know how to turn on descriptive video service.  Apparently there’s a button but I can’t find it on my PC connection.  Last week, while away from home, I listened to a CBC TV program using my IPod Touch.  Again, no discernible DVS link but as the program was finishing, lo and behold, a descriptive link was announced, I pressed it and got the last minute with DVS!

 

Any suggestions?

 

Don

Re: Accessing Facebook with JAWS using PC.

JM Casey
 

It’s good if you just casually use facebook to send messages to your friends or see how they’re doing by viewing their statuses and commenting, but not so much for stuff in realtime. Over half the functionality of facebook is effectively gone on m.facebook.com.

Good enough for me really, but I suspect, not for what Sharon is trying to do.

 

Imo those courses should use a better platform, but I guess you’d be fighting an uphill battle trying to get them to change, and I don’t actually have any better suggestions.

I use the mobile Facebook site. I think you’ll have better luck at m.facebook.com. It’s a clean interface without the clutter.

Subject: Accessing Facebook with JAWS using PC.

 

Hello list-members,

Much of the time, I access Facebook with my iPhone. However, I would also like to use this program with my PC, or rather become more proficient. I have identified a number of the keyboard commands specific to JAWS and Facebook, but cannot find the keystroke that allows me to post a message to a specific group.

For anyone here who uses Facebook with JAWS and a PC or laptop, I would appreciate contacting you of-list to go through some of the commands and to identify through discussion some commands that I may not be aware of. On a related note, reviewing the Navigation process would be helpful, drawing on your experience.

I would appreciate any and all assistance.

Blessings to all, Justin
