Hi Shaun

I still haven't managed to use I player.
My mind isn't on it right now due to family issues.

Hi Ben,

Whilst I personally agree with you that where possible people should use
mainstream solutions to accomplish their computing tasks, the popularity of
the Webbie applications and other similar packages such as Dolphin Guide
clearly shows us that a significant minority of users prefer these simpler
interfaces.
My question in this particular case is to your statement that the   iPlayer
TV tool will stop working shortly. Could you clarify
why? From what I can determine the tool simply latches on to an Internet
Explorer instance and provides standardised access throughout. HTML5 won't
make that any less effective (in fact it should increase the tool's
reliability, if anything).

Thanks,
Sean.

Hi,

Firstly, I'd suggest that people start to move away from the WebbIE tool as
it will stop functioning shortly.

Regarding accessing programmes using NVDA:

1. Navigate to http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer 2. I like to use h to navigate
through the various headings on the page - other navigation methods are
available.
3. The second time you press h you should be in the iPlayer navigation
section. There are quite a few different things you can do from here but for
this example press h again and NVDA should say BBC iPlayer Homepage.
4. Use the down arrow to explore the selection of featured programmes
- I've chosen
Casualty
for this example. Press enter on the programme you want.
5. Press h until NVDA says
media player.
6. Below this there should be an
embedded object
press enter on this. You should then find a play button which should start
playback.

Hope this helps,
Ben.
