Microsoft Teams is quite accessible with screen readers. There are definitely some inconsistencies in its interface but it's quite easy to use once you give it a chance. Its audio is superb and is comparable to Zoom. Microsoft has also been responsive in fixing accessibility-specific issues that I've submitted to them.

And, as an aside, Microsoft being Microsoft there is a ton of official documentation on using Teams with a screen reader.  All of these come up in the top 10 or so search results from:  https://duckduckgo.com/?q=microsoft+teams+accessibility+screen+reader

Mike,

           Just curious if it actually stops autoplay for all media?   I've got an extension installed that stops autoplay next for YouTube content, and it works like a charm, but it's only meant to stop the next YouTube item from playing (and playing and playing . . .).

            It would be great to have an extension that actually blocks autoplay, period, and since you're using it I figure you know whether that's exactly what it does for all media file types.

If one suspects that a mailing list exists for a given topic where accessibility is involved, doing a web search is going to turn it up.  If you believe it's on Groups.io, and there is one for Microsoft Teams and accessibility, then using the Groups.io Group Search with the appropriate keywords, in this case [Microsoft Teams Accessibility], will find it.  The home page of any Groups.io group, or any mailing list I've ever joined, gives the email addresses for subscribing, unsubscribing, etc.

Re: brave and media

I've seen cases where saving in that method saves the html file instead of the audio file. This may be because JAVA script is being used to redirect the browser or perhaps I'm wrong and something else is. But I have had that experience. I seldom save files using save target as or save link as but when I did more, that's what I found at times. Whether in such a case, control s works when the audio is playing is something I don't know.

Gene, unless the screen reader is doing something very weird on its own, the gaining of focus on a link, any link, and bringing up the context menu to "save link as" or "save target" or whatever phrasing that browser uses should be 100% effective.

It's standard operating procedure, and always has been, to my knowledge. If it was introduced then the introduction was more years ago than I can remember.

I haven't played the vast majority of media files in my browser for years because I generally just save them so I can use the media player of my choosing.

Hi Heather,

 

I found the information below at this URL.

 


Quick easy answer: Install AutoplayStopper as an extension.

 

More complicated detailed answer: Brave’s Autoplay behavior is dictated by Chromium. Mid/late summer 2019, Chromium eliminated a previously-available flag
that users could edit to control autoplay policy. Absent that editable flag, our only recourse is to install a 3rd-party extension. The good news: my experience
with AutoplayStopper and reports I’ve read are generally favorable.

 

 


Take care.  Mike.  Sent from my iBarstool.  Go dodgers!

Re: brave and media

If it plays, you will likely find a pause button if you go to the top of the screen, then press the letter b until you hear pause. If you are listening for that one word, I hope your hearing difficulties won't stop you from hearing it. Press the space bar on the button, which will stop the audio.

the button may say more than one word like pause audio.

Yes, that works however, some times my hearing difficulty comes to plabe me and sometimes the audio does not stop. I cant here the jaws when the media starts playing at the same time. So I always make all mp3 files download so I can play them with media player k-light. This works with some sites and others, the media does not stop in the browser. Thank you for that tip. I did not see an option to change media route in brave. So it continues to play media in the browser. I wonder if I need to set it up with chrome and import my settings to brave.

You may not be able to stop files from playing. I've seen this discussed

off and on with this or that browser. But there is another way to save the

files that works just as well. Follow the link and the audio will start to

play. Then use control s to open a save as dialog. Save the file using

that save as dialog.

You can but I don't know if it works as often as the method I gave. Someone with more technical knowledge may know. Sometimes a link redirects you to the file, which then plays. In that case, I wonder if control s will work and save target as or save link as won't. If you try the context method and it doesn't work, try my method to see if it does.

You could also move your focus to the link containing the media, press
shift-f10 or the Applications key and choose the Save Target option.

Re: brave and media

Brian Vogel <britechguy@...>
 

Also, and it doesn't matter the browser, if you have focus on a media link and the intent is to save the content, not play it, just bring up the context menu and do so.

The verbiage varies slightly depending on the browser, but it's usually something along the lines of "Save link as."  Once that's activated the Save dialog appears letting you navigate to where you want the file saved and with the Save button for actually saving it.

Re: Voice DREAM Reader and Kindle Books?

I use Codex to decrypt Kindle content which I then import into Voice Dream Reader. I prefer VDR's voices to those of iOS and VDR also offers a smoother reading experience over the Kindle app, which does a small but noticeable pause with each page turn.
