Hi,

I don't know if there are any ways of accesing the seekbar, but Window-Eyes
certainly reads out the rewind, forward, etc, buttons.  I don't know about
JAWS as I don't use it extensively for Youtube.

All the best

Steve

Hi Steve

I was heartened to read in your reply to the BCAB Discussion Group, "Youtube
is already accessible".

After asking numerous people, and receiving disappointing responses, during
recent months about navigating around Youtube material I had almost given up
the idea of using it fully as it appeared not to be truly accessible and
usable by a totally blind person using the JAWS screen reader!

Between where JAWS reads out "Flash Start" and "Flash End" there are 9
labelled buttons and 13-16 unlabelled buttons!  Are the Forward and rewind
controls amongst these unlabelled buttons, or, are they contained within the
graphic Seek slider which gives an ascending percentage read-out when the
video is playing?

Please could you enlighten me by describing how to navigate forward and back
within videos when listening to them on Youtube?  I am using: Windows
XP Home, JAWS 13 and Internet Explorer 8.

Youtube is an excellent resource for those wishing to learn music by ear, in
my case material for acoustic guitar.

I, and I suspect others, look forward to receiving your answer and ending my
Youtube frustration.

Regards

Raymond Brough

Hi,

Oh how I hate these so-called accessible versions of sites.  Youtube is
already accessible.  I also see that the so-called accessible site lacks
features like they have removed comments.

Ah well.

All the best

Steve
