It was the main you tube website.
there are a few different ways to get there.
The find command is most probably the quickest. then you might have to arrow into the edit area.
going to the bottom of the page with ctrl + end then shift key + 2 will land you on that area it seems to hit it every time for me.
Or usually the F key for form fields will get you there but you might have to do a a few times.
I think it depends what you want to do. In most cases i use the B for buttons to play them and only look around when i need to. Some times the arrow keys may be needed to get into the edit area.

Now, that's a good question. I really don't know whether I am right on this. We will have to wait for his confirmation...

What are we talking about??? The accessible Youtube site or the main site??? On the accessible site, the various items have text labels above them such as comments.?? I believe the page may list shortcuts for getting to various sections.?? If people haven't
read this, its another example of why people should look around on unfamiliar pages and not assume things are of no interest.?? Its the same reason people should look at a complete e-mail message sent on whatever topic a member sends one on, on an e-mail list.??
They will see footers with all sorts of useful links such as unsubscribe, perhaps nomail links, and maybe other useful links and information.??
Aside from that, I didn't bother learning the shortcuts.?? I may have learned ones I was interested in if I was going to use the site at all frequently, but there is a text label above every section.?? There is a comments label.?? If you use the screen-reader's
search feature from the top of the page and search for comments, you will find it efficiently.??
If people are talking about the Youtube web page, you may find things differently, if they are consistently accessible on different pages.?? At this point, it isn't clear who is talking about what.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Reaching the comments' section on YouTube video
Using browse mode, pressing F/shift+F (or E/shift+E), all I can get is the search field for searching a video.
No comments section at all.

Does the E key or F key not get you to that area. I tried it with the browse mode keys and it took me there.
I am wondering when you do get to that field and it says public comment or what ever it said are you changing into focus mode just in case it is not going into the mode correctly. I guess also it depends how you have it set as well.

I answered a similar request some weeks ago when I recommended a site designed for blind users which gives an ad free interface to search for and play YouTube videos.?? The link is:
After opening the site, use the e key to jump to the search edit box, then ??hit the spacebar to move into focus mode (unless you have auto mode switching set in NVDA).?? Type in your search criteria, then pres tab to move to a combo
box where you set the number of results per page.?? Set this to 10, 20 or 50, then press tab again.?? You landin another combo box where you can choose between videos, channels or playlists (I only ever use videos which is the default).?? Tab again to the
search button and press spacebar to run the search.
The results appear in a numbered list which you can access using the h key.?? Press this repeatedly and when you find one you want to play, press tab to move focus to it and press enter.?? A dialog box opens for the chosen video.??
Again use the h key to jup to the different sections, which include player controls, pla details, video information and video comments. You can use the b key to jump to the various player control buttons.
After video has played, use alt+left arrow to return to the results list dialog at the point where you left it.
Quite a while ago I posted here about the very same subject and at that time there was a workaround that really worked like a charm.
Trouble is, it doesn't seem to work anymore.
So, would any of you happen to know of a way to get to the comments' section on a YouTube video in a reliable manner?
Lately, for me, it's been a hit and miss. And honestly, let me tell you, it has been more of a miss than a hit. Really not fun to waste so much time with something that should be easy peasy, as I like to say.
I'm sending this one to the NVDA add-ons list as well, in case someone thinks it'd be a good idea to make an add-on to work with it and give it a solution once and for all.
Were I happen to have enough skills with it I could, should and would very well start such a project.
