Re: Issues With Number Processing or Display On Creative Labs Web Page


I see it using an older version of NVDA and an older version of Firefox.  I haven't tested with current browsers and current screen-readers. 
I don't know why this is the case when I saw one number displayed correctly with a decimal point where it should be.  I don't know what a sighted person sees but if you are curious enough, you might want to look at the source and see if the numbers read correctly or if you find a possible explanation when looking at the numbers there..

Subject: [nvda] Issues With Number Processing or Display On Creative Labs Web Page

Hi Group,

I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem.  When I visit the below web page on the Creative Laqs site, I get oddities with the prices for the various products.  For example, many of the prices are ridiculously high such as $16999 for a set of small portable speakers.  When examining it closely, it seems these figures are deleting a decimal point and replacing it with the first digit after the decimal point.  So the above example should actually read $16.99.  This has happened a number of times over the years.  Here is the page.
