Re: list boxes in NVDA

Ian Westerland

Hi Gene. Already tried copying and pasting the web address. It only comes up as a review page with the list boxes when a review is being submitted following an order but I will give it some further attention and investigation and write again when I can provide the additional information.

Thank you.

When asking about a web page, unless the page can't be viewed by the general public, please give the address of the page.  No one can answer the question without looking at the page.  There are too many possibilities.  For example, the list boxes may be inaccessible in general.  They may be inaccessible with certain browsers and screen-reader combinations and visible with others.  They may be visible with brows mode off when tabbing through the fields but not with browse mode on.  There is no way to know without people looking at the page.
I would imagine you know how to copy the address from the address bar and paste it into the message.  But since I don't know anything about what you know, I don't want to assume.  Ask if you have questions.  At times, I see people type addresses, even long ones, a way to do lots of extra work and have errors in the address.

Hi Antony.
It's an online review page.
