Re: stopping the word clickable.


Gene
 

My recollection is that in JAWS, clickable is only said once when a structure is encountered. 
 
There is a setting in the quick settings dialog to stop this and mouse over from being spoken.  I don't know if it affects anything else.  There appears to be a way to have control over individual attributes but I haven't looked into it. 
 
To see the information I saw, do the following:
When your browser is opened and you are in the Virtual PC Cursor, open quick settings with JAWS Key v.  Then down arrow until you get to attributes indicate.  Change its state with the space bar.  it's checked by default.
If you tab once, you will be in a help field where you can see information about this setting and, evidently, how to control what is spoken for individual attributes. 
If you want to change the setting, change it and activate the ok button.
 
I believe the change is permanently saved, not per session.

Hi:

Just to let everybody know, the same thing happens on JAWS.  I haven't
found a way to turn it off yet.  I'm glad that there is a way in NVDA.
Thanks for posting the instructions.
