Re: How to click on links when they won't click


I'm not sure where the link was that took me to the page with menus earlier.  But in general, links I've followed have worked correctly, regardless of how the site looks visually and the menu I opened, I believe I had to turn browse mode off to open it and keep browse mode off to move through the menu, worked properly. 
If you, Brian, haven't worked with the site using NVDA, which I assume is the screen-reader being used, you may have a very different perspective if you do.
I'm not saying there aren't problems, I haven't looked at that much of the site, but the FAQS I read parts of read properly, the create a character page reads properly and so far, in my looking at this and that, things either worked properly or I could get them to work, as I described with the menus.

Hi.  Yes I think the person who refered me to it is a bit sighted so that is probably why she could do it.

            I can activate the Get Started link (which, by the way, is another of those loathsome "link disguised visually as a button" objects),but what it does is something I've never seen (literally) before:  It just slides you down the page so that you are placed, without focus on anything, in an area of the page just below two menu buttons, the first of which is a dropdown for "I am" (you're presented with a list of occupations) and the second "I speak."  Immediately below that is a scrollable table (layout wise, but not as a table object) of various sites, with a collection of links for each one.

            This page is just bizarre.  If you can see it's easy enough to figure out certain parts of it, but even then overall it does not follow anything that I'd call a recognizable convention for web coding that I've ever encountered.   It's overall design is beyond awful.

             If you are determined to try to work with these folks I would definitely give their mobile app a try and then give them a businesslike earful about just how awful their website is from an accessibility perspective.
