Hi,

 

I find that if you let the ad run for about ten seconds, then the B method will work.  The Skip ad button doesn’t come up at the beginning of ads, so you have to watch a bit of them.

 

All the best

The B button works sometimes but it is just the way you tube is.

Hi,

 

Recently I’ve been having trouble with finding the Skip Ads button in YouTube. Today, several minutes into an 18 minute ad and being unable to find the Skip Ads button, I cornered a sighted coworker who easily found what they described as a Skip Ads popup button that was over the Play button area. This never announced as I tabbed and arrowed through the YouTube screen.

 

Is there a way or ways to consistently find YouTube Skip Ads buttons?

 

Thanks in advance, Keith

And with further tinkering I find you must use Enter to select a category when your traversing the category choices.

Hitting spacebar, whether a screen reader is active or not, triggers an emoji search that comes up empty.  So use Enter when you want to shift the category/collection.

Oops, I forgot to mention that once you're on the category you want to bring up, you do have to hit Enter (spacebar would probably work, too - you're just activating the category) before you hit SHIFT+TAB to get back into the actual collection of emojis.

If, immediately after bringing up the Emoji panel, you hit TAB, you will be thrown to the "control line" where you can choose the category of emojis you wish to review. The default being "most recently used".  Arrow to the right and you'll land on the Smiley Faces category.  Hit SHIFT+Tab and you're back in the actual selection section where you can left/right/up/down arrow among the emoji being shown.

There are categories other than smiley faces, and if you right arrow over you'll hear all of them until you hit the last one.  I didn't test to see whether you stop at the last one or it circles back to "most recently used".

I'm playing with it now, in Notepad.


I noticed that after issuing the command, hitting space will bring up the panel quickly.


If I close the panel with     ESCAPE, and then issue the command it comes up but closed. Hitting space will open it.


I'm still floundering about trying to consistently get into a list of the emoji symbol for smiley faces.


Tabbing will get me to the list of groups, arrow right goes through the groups such as:

  Most Recently Used and smiley faces.


But, how to open or get into the group list of Smiley Faces?


Just once did I land in a list of smiley faces but I don't know what I did.

It can be slow to appear after the keyboard shortcut is issued.  And that's even when there's not a screen reader involved.  I have no idea why this is.

The next question is are you using a utility such as CCleaner, BleachBit, System Ninja, or the like that cleans browser cache and cookies?

Login states for individual websites are cookie managed, and I'm taking that as being the issue you're talking about:  having to log in again after exiting and restarting Chrome.  If it is instead about having form information for login id/password stored by the browser, then open Chrome settings, go to the Autofill section, Passwords item then open it and see if the toggle for Offer to save passwords is ON.  Also check, regardless of the state of that toggle, whether the one immediately after it, Auto Sign-In, is toggled ON.  If it isn't, you will always be asked to log in again, even if you have stored login and password credentials.

What Chrome Extensions do you have installed? It sounds like some sort of privacy related extension is deleting all your cookies upon exiting Chrome, and Chrome does not support this by default. Either that, or you're firing up
Chrome in incognito mode (which takes some very intentional doing) in which case nothing is preserved when the incognito session is closed.

This can be a very useful option for braille users who want some speech but don’t necessarily want Jaws to speak everything and it was really designed with braille users in mind. It is not a useful option for a completely blind person who relies on speech only.

Hi, Robin. When JAWS is set to mute speech, speech is always muted. When JAWS is set to use Speech on demand, speech is usually muted, but JAWS will still speek when using commands such as,

 

Say Character

Say Prior Word

Say Next Word

Say Word

Spell Word

Say Prior Line

Say Current Line

Spell Current Line

Say All

 

etc. So, you have speech muted, but when using navigational commands except for arrow keys, JAWS will speak normally.

Sieghard, Are you able to articulate to me what Speech on Demand really does?  Even without following the steps you and Bill each outlined,  I was finding that the JAWS spacebar then S would mute my speech.  JAWS says Speech on Demand, but when this is active, I havent’ noticed JAWS speaking so it’s effectively been a mute function for me.  I’m not clear how someone would use Speech on Demand and am guessing that you have to customize how JAWS will or won’t speak in this mode, but can’t imagine how it’s used.

Hi Bill,

 

Just for your information, you can accomplish what  you described also in the following way:

 

1. Press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by S – this will turn on speech on demand

2. Now press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by Shift + S – Jaws will say “Speech off set to speech mute”

3. Press Jaws Key + Spacebar followed by S again – Jaws will now say full speech and from now on when you press this layered shortcut it will toggle between mute and full speech.

If you want to go back to speech on demand simply repeat the above steps, first toggle speech to mute, then press the layered keystroke but with Shift + S and Jaws will say “Speech off set to speech on demand”, now the toggle is back between full speech and speech on demand.

 

Regards,

Sieghard

Hi, Rick. In case all you want to do is to mute speech instead of unloading JAWS entirely, try the following,

 

1. Open Settings Center with INSERT plus six on numbers row.

2. Press CONTROL plus SHIFT plus D to load Default JAWS configuration.

3. In the search field, type

 

speech.

 

4. Arrow down to Less Speech Options.

5. Press SPACE BAR to toggle speech from Speech On Demand to Mute Speech.

6. TAB to OK, and press ENTER to save settings.

 

7. Now, INSERT plus SPACE, followed by S will mute speech instead of setting it to Speech On Demand.

Why on earth would someone do that?  Replying to a Groups.io message, on any group, automatically sends it to the group as a whole (unless the owner has changed the defaults, which is not the case here).  This message was not CC ed to the group, but it will go out to it.

You need only use the group posting address if you are starting a new topic, otherwise, just hitting reply without touching either the Subject or address fields works just fine to get a message to the group.
