did someone try vlc version 3?
the last version that i tried is 2.2.8.
it workes, but not very intuative like km or potplayer.
for example:
i cant go forward or backword using just left and right arrow keys
which makes navigation a little fifficult.
and when i go to preferences nvda says pane pane pane many times,
after announcing specific option, it tells about fonts!
exactly like the time that you use nvda+f!
what should i do to prevent this problem?

There is a tutorial up on my website for VLC media player but it is more for
playing dvds with audio description and music which should also have a link
to the add on in the page.

it can be found at

After going to the page you will need to jump down by headings to the VLC
media player tutorial.

hope it helps.

I’ve never used it with this Chromecast. I use it to play videos, for which
it’s excellent. No tutorials that I know of. My experience with the program?
It’s very powerful and versatile, but sometimes things are non-intuitive,
and certain things, like the advanced preferences dialog screen, don’t
always play so nicely with screen-readers. It is however possible to change
the VLC interface. I don’t know if there are any specific interface
alterations available that work better with NVDA. I’d certainly be
interested to find out. For now, I’ve *mostly* gotten the program to do
everything I want it to do. The hardest thing, strangely enough, has been to
save my own equalizer settings for movies, but I think I finally got that

There is an add-on for it. That will help quite a bit with usage.

Has anyone any experience using the VLC media player with NVDA?  I've just
installed it in order to take advantage of its ability to use a Chromecast,
and, while I've gotten it to work, I'm wondering if anone has done a good
tutorial for VLC, either with NVDA, or just in general.
