YouTube Video navigation commands: access with JAWS


Tim Ford
 

The accessible YouTube player works by doing the following:

 

1.        Press the JAWS key and the letter z.  JAWS will respond “quick keys off”.  This is a toggle command, so pressing the same keys again will result in “quick keys on”.  You want the “off” mode.

2.        The back, play/pause, and forward is done by pressing the j, k, or l key.  Sometimes you can hit the space bar and the video will pause, press again to start.  However, most of the time in my experience the jkl keys are what works.

This will work any time you hear through JAWS that the web page is using the YouTube Player.

 

Sincerely,

Tim Ford

Hi, Laura. All I need to do to get Youtube to play a video is press ENTER on the link for the video. What browser are you using to try to play the video?

Hello,

 

How do you get Youtube to play a video? …… Using Jaws 18 and Windows 10.

jaws z is the virtual pc cursor. not quick keys.

all i do is turn off the virtual pc cursor with jaws key and z then tab once to get out of the slider to stop jaws from speaking the status then press the j,k and l keys.
i tried to put focus on the web page. i was able to tab between links and the youtube shortcut keys still functioned
one time when the shortcuts didn't work i just left mouse clicked on the screen. i don't know where the mouse pointer was. grin. and the shortcuts started working again. i guess focus was not even on the firefox browser screen.
