Sorry I'm just getting round to catching up with my emails. Yes in my
experience Youtube is a little awkward to use with JAWS, still it is usable.
You can alternate between JAWS and NVDA to use Youtube and see if you feel more
comfortable with the latter programme. There are a couple of sites you can try
Accessible YouTube - YourTube
The above site is a more accessible interface to Youtube.
YouTube to mp3 Converter
As the name suggest, this site converts Youtube videos to MP3 files which you
can then download to your PC and play them using your preferred media player.
Also, there is a great Firefox add-on called Video Download Helper which can
download Youtube videos to your PC directly from the Youtube site with a couple
of key presses. No fiddling or messing about. A must have for all Firefox users
if you ask me.
If you are still looking for the BBC programme you mentioned, send the details
and I'd be happy to download it for you.

Subject: [access-uk] Accessin Youtube with JAWS
BBC 6 music, this morning, recommended listeners to listen to a program on
Youtube about Leonard Cohen.
As a very huge fan, I attempted to listen to that particular show whilst
recording it on Total Recorder for future use.
Unfortunately, as always happens on Youtube, I get lost with JAWS 16 and arrow
down lists of items with many of them repeted.
So after over an hour without finding the particular program, I gave up.
It appears to me that perhaps I need to set up Youtube to work better with JAWS
and also, if one is available, get a tutorial to teach me the basics concerning
navigating through Youtube.
Can anyone offer any advice or point me in a particular direction for support.
I am aware that there is loads of interesting material on Youtube of which many
of us would enjoy but because of poor access, we eventually become disheartened
and like myself give up.
Any advice would be very much appriciated.
Very best wishes.
From Scotland with Love.
