Re: Which video software for nvda
Do the things in reverse order. Get the address on the clipboard first.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Then open Pontes. The point is not to perhaps have one thing on the
clipboard first, then have it change after the program opens.
Also, after you open the program, tab around to find the download button.
If you don't want to change the folder, you are looking for just a download
Here are the steps when downloading if you don't want to change anything:
New steps start on new lines:
Have your browser go to the Youtube page from which the video streams. It
will probably start to stream.
Go to the address bar and copy the link to the clipboard.
Close the browser or that page to stop the stream unless you want to listen
The address is automatically pasted into the edit field, which you will see
as you tab around.
Assuming you don't want to change anything, tab to the download button and
press the space bar. Just the download button, not anything like download
You should hear a soft musical sound and the file will start to download.
To confirm that something is going on, move to the status line with control
s. Use the read current line command to read it.
When the download and conversion is finished, you should hear another
musical tone and the status line should say idle. The file should be in the
folder it is supposed to be in.
On my computer, there are times when I start version 3.1 and it doesn't do
anything for perhaps half a minute or a little more. When I read the title
bar, it says not responding. Then it starts to respond. When it does, your
first time using the program, tab through everything. You will see such
things as combo boxes to change what files are converted to. To change the
rate of conversion, I'm not sure, but you may have to work with the menus.
But let's nmot ghet into all that now. Tab around the entire part of the
interface, which contains the common things you may do and the more common
things you may want to do.
These instructions apply to version 2.x as well, as I recall, things are so
similar that you won't do anything differently when downloading a file and
seeing combo boxes, etc. You should see very similar things,. I don't know
which version you are using so I added those comments.

1. Launch Pontes.
2. Open your browser and launch the Youtube videoe.
3. Go to the address bar and copy the address.
4. Move back to Pontes and paste in the address.
5. By default, the file should download into your default download
folder. I have changed mine to something different. you can do this
under the Pontes settings. Actually you can tab to the item labeled
download folder and press enter or space bar on it and a select folder
dialogue should open where you can use normal Explorer navigation to
select a new folder.
One other thing: You can make Pontes automatically copy the address from
a Youtube page when it is launched under Pontes settings. If you do
this, there are some focus issues. You may have to alt + tab around a
few times to regain focus to Pontes once you launch the desired Youtube
If you need any more help, feel free to post again.
