Here is a hint for interacting with videos on YouTube more efficiently using a screen reader

  1. If you are using the JAWS screen reader with YouTube in your browser, turn off the virtual cursor by hitting JAWSKey+Z. Other screen readers may have a different hotkey for doing this and/or the terminology might be a little different.
  2. Now the following keystrokes that are native to YouTube can be used to control playback:
    1. "J" = skip backward
    2. "K" = pause
    3. "L" = skip forward
    4. "M" = mute
  3. When done, remember to turn the virtual cursor on again by hitting JAWSKey+Z (or the appropriate keystroke for your screen reader).
