I was just playing with the program and its even easier to open the output folder than I realized.  The item is in the menus so you don't have to tab around to it.  Just press alt, right arrow once, down arrow once and press enter.

Yes that was my thinking as well when I created the launcher.

I don't think you should.  After all, it's a portable version. 
 
if you did, you would have to have a setting to let things run as they do now or not to do so and I don't think the complication is worth the ability to change the output folder.  It's easy enough to open the folder and move the file.

Yes.  The launcher does this every time the program starts for the sake of portability and because the controls to configure the default folder are not very accessible.  I suppose I could work on this so the folder configured by the user in the settings file would be retained, but it just wasn't that important to me.

I just tried changing the output folder because I got more curious.  But the setting was replaced in the file with the original setting and the file was downloaded to the original location.  My guess, and obviously you would know, Carlos, is that at least that setting is written to the file every time the program is run.

I did tinker with the preset configuration file at one point and was able to add a preset, but I could not break down all the parameters to make it work consistently.

I suppose you could change some of these settings by altering the correct cfg file.  It's a text file that you can open in notepad.  There is more than one but you'll know the right one when you open it.  I don't know the effects of altering this file and I'm not curious enough to experiment.  if anyone wants to experiment, make a backup of the original cfg file before making any changes.

Hi,
I don’t think that the presets are any different in the premium user version though I can’t say for sure as no screen reader can find the button one executes after entering said code least not with any screen reader I possess. but if I ever get it activated for sure I’ll surely update.

The controls for changing the default download folder are not accessible.  Also, remember that this version is supposed to be portable so the launcher configures a subdirectory in the root folder of the program named
"Downloads"
as the default.  The only bitrates and formats which are available are the ones listed in the
"Output Preset"
combo box, at least in the free version.  The bitrates and formats listed here should be sufficient for most users.

I wanted to change the output or download folder from that long path to my easier to access folder.  I also may want to change formats and/or bit rates.

If there is an "OK" button, it is not accessible, but I don't know what settings you are trying to change.  There are no settings really worth changing.  Just paste a YouTube URL into the main window, choose an output format/preset, wait a couple of seconds for the program to parse the URL, and select the
"Download File"
button.

Where are the OK buttons for the dialogues in settings?  I just don't see them with NVDA latest version.

Hi Carlos,

 

Using NVDA, Free Youtube to MP3 converter that you referenced is not accessible. Nothing is read at all with the review cursor and I cannot find an OK button in tab order under settings or any other place.  I assume you are using JAWS?

I am using YouTube DLG and although it does not have as many options as other downloaders, I am finding that it is very nice. I like the speed and quality of the downloads. And the interface is simple and accessible.

Why not use the program Carlos made available in a portable version, FreeYouTubeToMP3Converter.  Of course, assuming the latest version is still accessible, you could use the nonportable version as well.  I'm not sure if the link Carlos used for the program is still available.  I'll let others comment on that.

Hi Group,


I downloaded and installed a program called Youtube BLG--a program that
is supposed to convert Youtube videos to alternative forms such as MP3. 
It seems fairly accessible, but when I copy and paste the address into
the address bar in the program and click convert, it just hangs.


Is anyone else on list using this program and if so, how does it work
for you?
