NOTES:

  • If a feature is not available in a presentation, the shortcut for it will not work in the Player.
  • The fast forward, jump forward, and jump backward shortcuts are not available as buttons in the Player.
  • When you use the jump forward and jump backward shortcuts, you will skip within the presentation a pre-determined amount-for example, Ctrl+] skips you 30 seconds forward in a presentation. If a chapter point appears before the pre-determined time, using the shortcut will take you to the chapter point instead. So if you use Ctrl+] and there is a chapter point before the 30 second interval, the shortcut will stop there. If you use Ctrl+] again, the shortcut will take you 30 seconds forward from the chapter point.

Note: When using a jump forward or backward shortcut, the presentation will stop at the first chapter point it encounters if one exists between the start mark and the jump-to mark. If a chapter point exists within 10 seconds of the jump-to mark, the player will automatically jump to that chapter point.

 

Mediasite Screen Reader Player & ARIA Messages

Mediasite Player also supports ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) messages when using screen readers with the appropriate browser.

  • When navigating to a certain point in a presentation: Seeked to X percent.
  • When chapter changes while watching: Entered chapter X. Y percent.
  • When navigating to a specific chapter: Seeked to chapter X. Y percent.

Note: Firefox 3.0+ required for NVDA screen reader. IE 8+ or Firefox 3.0+ required for JAWS screen reader. ARIA messages not supported with Google Chrome.
