Re: Need some browser and screenreader input on a page

That is bizarre--I tried it with NVDA on Internet Explorer on my Windows 7
64-bit machine and if I scrolled up from the event list, which was indeed a
month behind the date it was supposed to be showing, then the month would
change, too! It kept going backwards, and then I arrowed down and the events
for the month prior to the new date would appear.

Our charity has a page with an events calendar on it at

Now with nvda, I can navigate by header to the frame with the calendar in
it. I can hear it say the date its showing events from, with a clickable if
you wish to change it, but when I cursor down, it seems that the calendar
date is a month before the date its supposed to be.
With me so far?
However just powered up jaws 2018 and tried to do the same thing. Headers
do not seem to work to that point. I need to stop before it and go down, but
I'm still cursoring down and this time the event in the calendar does not
alter at all. This is in the latest version of firefox and the latest
version of Waterfox. Both seem to behave the same, ie differently on the

Its as if the calendar thinks I've hit the scroll up in nvda but is OK in
Jaws. About the headings, well I am not an expert on Jaws, so I might be
missing something.

So what is occurring, our site builder is beginning to lose his mind!
