No you are right totally. it seems like there is a hidden piece of code there and it would be interesting to know what a sighted person sees in all such cases. I'm sure this has come up before though, and I just cannot recall what the problem was, some kind of page authoring error as I recall, but maybe the only way to find out is to get at the page source and find an html code specialist to see if they can see the issue. Obviously the buffer created in IE has some kind of difference to that in Firefox. I cannot comment on Edge or Chrome as I've not got either.

Hi Brian,


Now this is getting to be really weird. I tried the page in The Edge browser with the same results. I tried it in Internet Explorer and it seems to read normally--except when you review each character in the prices, you get a figure without a decimal point. Somehow, Internet Explorer is seeing some sort of hidden code and the screen readers are reading the price correctly, but individual characters show no decimal point. If anyone doubts what I'm saying, do the comparison yourself with the 3 browsers: Firefox, Edge and Internet Explorer.

Seems to be a firefox thing, prices are said differently in IE11.

Hi Group,


If you visit the web address for BJ's Wholesale Black Friday preview:

http://www.bjs.com/blackfriday.content.minisite_blackfriday2017.B#/bflist/Week


you will swee the prices on some of the items read very strangely.


I tried with the E-Speak synthesizer, the SAPI 5 Eloquence voice, the Microsoft Core Voices and with JAWS and they all read the same.


What is causing this? Is it really a massive misprint? Or is it just an oddity with the way numbers and dollars expressions are rendered to screen readers on this particular page?

lry strange. for example, the televsions like Samsung have a listed price of $99999
