Re: NVDA doesn't always see buttons on a web page

There is no way.  are you saying that JAWS announces the button as play and NVDA doesn't?  If so, I don't know why.  also, I may have forgotten to mention that after you press enter, the way, in NVDA to move from button to button is to tab and shift tab.  You may not have to and I often just try pressing enter whether I can move or not or whether I hear any button announced or not.  Sometimes, I try tabbing and pressing enter a number of times regardless of whether I hear any feedback or not.  But I often use the mouse technique I described first.  It often works and, in my experience, it works more often than the pressing enter method does. 
 
also, what we are discussing is an example of why demanding Windows users should have more than one screen-reader available.  At times, JAWS will allow a Flash button to be activated and NVDA won't.  At times, the reverse is true.  Often, both screen-readers can be used successfully.

the play button may be a control in a Flash player.  Try going to the page, then make sure you are at the top,  Type the letter o and see if you land on an embedded object.  Press enter and try tabbing and shift tabbing.  Do you see any buttons?  Also, if that doesn't work, start over.  Close and reopen the browser, go to the web page again, make sure you are at the top then type o to move to the embedded object.  Now route the mouse to the current location of the object navigator with the command numpad insert numpad slash, the same key as for left click. 

Now press numpad slash by itself to left click the embedded object.  Does the file start to play? 

 

Remember two things when following these instructions for working with the mouse.  First, before starting the second set of instructions, make sure you are in object review.  Issue the command numpad insert numpad 1.  If you hear somethin like no previous review, you will already be in object review.  If you hear something that isn't object review but some other review, continue to issue the command until you get to object review. 

 

Remember not to press enter on the embedded object. 

And one more thing:

When I said to start over and close the browser, then open it and go to the page again, I did so to avoid any possible problems.  I wanted you to start from the beginning so we both knew exactly what you were doing.  But when not learning from these instructions, you don't have to do that.  You can, as I recall, return to the page by using a book mark without closing the browser first.  That will save you time.  But if you can't get the file to play, you can try closing the browser first to see if that makes any difference.  you can't get the file to play, you can close the browser, as I said initially.

Hi, NVDA doesn’t see the play button on a webpage however Jaws sees it.  What is the reason for this?
