you are very correct that unlabeled graphics are skipped, no
matter what navigation keys you choose. It is a serious
problem. Suppose I am taking online training at work, and I
have to be able to click the unlabeled graphic, and not have
NVDA skip it. Suppose I know what the unlabeled graphic is,
by text above or below it, and I do not have a sighted
person available to click it for me. This comes up in the
workplace all the time. How can we submit feedback to the
developers on this? Thanks.
graphics aren't labeled, then, of course, you may have a
hard time determining what graphic to click. But the
question, as posed, assumes that. Can NVDA be made to
announce all graphics? I don't think it does now. If
there is a graphic without any text, I don't think it
announces it and there is no setting I know of to adjust
the level of graphic announcement. JAWS has such a
setting and you were discussing that in your comparison of
NVDA and JAWS. If I am correct that there is no setting
in NVDA for this, this is another way in which NVDA isn't
as user definable as JAWS where it should be. This may be
a serious problem on a site where, to take an action a
graphic needs to be clicked. It might mean having to
click it with the simulated mouse but to do that, it must
be announced as you move through the page so you can move
to it and then move the mouse to it.
may need sighted help to know which graphic to click but
as far as I know, NVDA doesn't read unlabeled graphics on
web pages and moving character by character doesn't read
them either. As far as I know, they are skipped as though
they don't exist.

[nvda] unlabeled graphics on the web
I don't think
you can do much about idiotic web site design. I think you
might be able to in Jaws, though it is often a trial and error
unless you have sighted help to identify non marked controls
stuffed. It might be worth writing to the site admins and
pointing out that
a little bit ofalt tagging would go a long way.

Subject: [nvda] unlabeled graphics on the web
Hi, how do I get NVDA to identify all graphics on a web page,
unlabeled ones, if I need to click one for example? Also,
which section of
the user guide explains this in further detail? Thanks.
