Below are tips for using JAWS 10.0 and Window-Eyes 7.0.1 to log into the Mediasite system and navigate players (screen reader layout), catalogs (mobile layout), and the search application.

Solution

Ctrl-Z toggles the player’s screen reader layout on and off. In this mode, all playback controls are simple buttons on the page, and users will navigate between them using the Tab and Shift-Tab keys.

Note: Shift-Tab navigates in reverse, for example, to go back to a previous control. Also, in the search application, logging into the Mediasite system is not required. However, without logging in, only presentations available for anonymous viewing will be included in search results.
