Re: comment section in you tube is not displaying

JM Casey

Something seems to have changed for me recently … I don’t know whether it is a setting, something youtube is trying with certain servers or what, but the comments now seem to load before suggested videos, and appear higher on the page than other non-currently-playing-video-related content.

It seems that many of us have different sorts of youtube experiences dependent onv arious sometimes unknown factors, which is interesting, but doesn’t always make suggesting solutions straightforward.

Although there is something which acts like an edit field to "add a public comment", it's done in such a way that it isn't actually a traditional edit field, so you can't find it by navigating by edit field or even form field.  The best way I've found to get to it is:


1. Press NVDA+control+f to open NVDA's find function.

2. Type the word "comments" (without quotes)

3. Press ENTER to move to the first instance of the word.

4. Press TAB twice to move past "Sort by" and onto the edit field.


I have found that sometimes everything hasn't loaded and it can't find comments.  In this case, escape the error dialog, press CONTROL+END to jump to the bottom of the page, then up arrow and it's usually actually at the comments - YouTube seems to load the video and then related / suggested videos, then after that the comments, and sometimes it doesn't load the comments until you actually scroll down to the bottom of the page to get to them.


Kind regards

Not sure if this problem occurs with the NVDA but I will give a shot to
discuss here.
