As said, it was from memory, intended merely as pointers, not exact steps. Sorry if it didnt work for you, but as confirmed by others here, it can be done with some level of nenacity.

Yeah, no, what you said tabbing, typing e-mail, tabbing typing password, then pressing enter isn't working.

 

If you all can point me where to go to learn more about the OCR addon, I'll be more than happy to give it a shot.

That screen sure is a dog. Speaking from memory, the control with focus on
that screen is where you select your region. Tabbing once lands you on the
edit control where your registered e-mail address is filled in. The next tab
is for the password, after which enter should complete the process. Ollie is
right, the OCR add-on is what got me passed the registration the first time
I had to figure it out.

chris,


Have you tried with Screen review or ObjectNavigation?


And, alternatively, have you tried using the OCR add-on?


I know I did it long ago, but I don't remember how. It must have been at
least three years ago, and I thought accessibility of that part had improved
meanwhile... Sad to hear it hasn't.


Ciao,

Ollie

Amazon account. yes. I made absolutely certain that I had the version with
the accessibility plugged in. once the registration screen comes up, I'm
placed on a combo box that says the fall, although it is not labeled. so I
am not sure what I am picking as the default. If I press the tab key,
absolutely nothing at all happens. NVDA says absolutely nothing at all. Same
goes if I shift tab.
