hi, just thought I would add some thing here. I know that a few of you use goldwave. you might wish to know that goldwave can get the audio from most movies files. it plays just fine and works well with jaws. also you might also wish to know that watching videos with winamp works well with jfw. power dvd 4 works well for watching most dvds. hth -----Original Message----- From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of chevelle Sent: Friday, June 24, 2005 1:49 PM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Re: video playing software somewhat accessible to jaws Hi Allison, where did you get the vlc software?

Yeah I had to close the program to stop the Star Wars movie I had downloaded. Can you shed some light on any of the menus options like settings and audio? ----- Original Message ----- From: Allison Mervis <mailto:allisonfm@xxxxxxxxxxx> To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Friday, June 24, 2005 11:31 AM Subject: Re: video playing software somewhat accessible to jaws Hi! I have VLC, and wish that functions such as play and pause were readily accessible.

It is called vlc media player. You can get this from www.videolan.org When you go to the website, arrow down a few times, and you will get to a link that says vlc media player. Click that link. Then you need to select the operating system. For this example we will use windows. Arrow down, and jaws will come to the windows link. Click that link. When the neew page is loaded, if you have jaws 5.0 or higher, you can use the h key to jump straight to vlc media player for windows. At this point you need to select a download mirror basically a site to download the program. I think there were seven choices. I selected the first choice in the list. After you select your choice a couple of things may happen. Eeither the download will start right away, or you will hear a noise like I did thanks to service pack two, and you will need to click the link that says click here if the download doesn't start. I assume people know how to download so I will stop at this point and move on the actual software part. Keep in mind that I am still very new to this software. When I installed it I just accepted all the defaults. The install part works fine with jaws. Jaws will read all the things in the installation process. After thee program is installed the fun begins. When you want to play a video file open the program. If you just want to play the file all you do is press control o for open. Then you just go to where you have your file located, and tab to the open button. It takes a few mintues for the file to start playing so don't panic if it doesn't play right away. The meenu is somewhat accessible. Either Jaws doeesn't read everything or there aren't too many options within the menu. Hope this helps, and have fun listening.
