This would probably be considered a somewhat geeky solution
but it is effective and something some people might want to know
about. I avoid a lot of problems on pages that don't require
JAVA script by having it off on such pages.. Alot of what you
are describing, intrusive ads, refreshing pages, videos or audio
that plays, are often displayed or played by use of JAVA
As one possible solution to the audio problem when JAVA
scripts are on, I saw in one browser, it may have been Chrome, a
setting that allows you to tell the browser not to play audio on
web pages. I don't recall the exact wording and it might be
different such as referring to audio and videos or a variation.
Others may know about that setting. I saw it in passing
recently but I didn't try to remember anything about it.
Increasingly, pages require JAVA scripts to work properly but
on a page with an article, you usually don't need to have it
on. I can explain more how I do this reasonably efficiently in
Chrome and Firefox if people want to know.

Subject: Re: [nvda] NVDA and ads blocker
I was just wandering as the web is
getting more and more difficult for us visually impaired and
blind person. It is not only the ads but also videos that
suddenly are launched when you are trying to read something
and pages that refreshed and you are no longer where you
were as what you were reading has moved. All these
annoyances make the web, at times, difficult to navigate.
My first option is coming to this fortunate list and various
members have kindly provided various solutions. Thanks for
The ADA says things should be
accessible. I don't know if inconvenience ever rises to a
level of a violation of accessibility laws, but it often
doesn't. I would suggest, when problems of formatting or
such as you are describing now are found, that you ask if
people know of ways to reduce or eliminate the problem
instead of first resorting to a legal remedy which you
will likely not get support for by institutions or those
who bring accessibility actions and which may take a long
time to be ejudicated in the court system.
In this case, while I don't know
what browser you are using , try another browser. Also,
if you do or don't want to try another browser first, Some
browsers have a reading view. If they don't, you can use
an add-on. This removes a lot of extraneous material from
web pages and it may remove these long links.
also, there is an NVDA add-on I saw
discussed about a month ago that may deal with a problem
like yours but I don't recall the name and it may do other
things you don't like.

[nvda] NVDA and ads blocker
Today some pages are so riddled with long
links that are ads, some of which are several lines long,
making reading with a screen reader very annoying and
difficult. Example of pages are Breitbart.com, wnd.com… they
are becoming very common which, in my view, is a violation of
the ADA that we may need to look into and report.
Is there any way to skip the ads? Is there
a freeware ads blocker that works well with NVDA?
Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.
