Re: Accessibility tips on this website would be appreciated


Hello, Greg. I really wasn't able to look much at the source because
it appears you've got some sort of proprietary Javascript framework
running, which, if I'm at all correct, is not helping your cause. Your
objects appear to be clickable elements as opposed to standard links.
These may or may not work well w/NVDA depending on whether or not the
mouse is positioned properly. They certainly don't appear to do
anything when using either the left-click key or the object activation
key commands.

I am assuming, simply because you appear to know something about this,
that you've used alt tags to label images. That's always a dangerous
thing to do, though, as I'm certain you're well aware. Because I
couldn't study the source, I couldn't tell, but obviously those are
always a first step.

It also appears from the source that you may be importing content from
elsewhere, ie, I'm seeing references to IFrame in your javascript, &
that, too, may not be helping. I really think the problem here is
primarily your website framework. Again, not being able to look at the
full source is problematic, but that's my assessment after a 10-minute
glance, which likely is all my time permits. I do appreciate your
wanting to make your photo site accessible. I think a more
standardized content management system like WordPress or Drupal is
likely the 1 biggest step you could take to achieve that, & I also
understand that kind of undertaking isn't likely something you want to

Hello Greg,

now, bare in mind I am not a web developer wiz myself.

However, the first thing that came to mind, have you tested the link with
other browsers?

I see the descriptions reliably with Firefox 60.3 ESR and Google Chrome
72.0.3, the system is a Win 10 64 Bit.

You might want to look into your website building tool of choice to find the
answer to this issue.

Thanks and kind regards,

Betreff: [nvda] Accessibility tips on this website would be appreciated

I am a photographer / content creator that specializes in panoramic imagery
like you would find on Google Street View. I use NVDA to test the
accessibility of my projects. Generally, these projects are based on a
straight line array of thumbnails which each contain a tooltip giving a
basic name for the corresponding panorama. Sometimes, there is a combobox
that lists categories or areas each, in turn, have there own array of
panoramas....and thumbnails associated with them. I am using Chrome 72.0
and Firefox 65.0 on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine....and, Microsoft Edge 44.177
on a 64 Bit Windows 10 Machine to test this link: This is a
virtual tour of DeGray Lake in Arkansas.
To be honest, there appears to be virtually no accessibility in this project
most of the time. But for some reason, sometimes the page will load and
NVDA will first read the Combobox List, and then proceed to name all of the
150 or so thumbnail titles. It seems like that could be a good start to
achieving some standard of accessibility, but I don't understand why it only
does it every once in awhile.

I would be grateful for any feedback that anyone could give on how to
improve the accessibility of this project and I would be even more grateful
for information on how to tweak NVDA to get the best results. For example,
if I alternate between using the tab key and doing 1 mouse click in the
screen, I can move one by one through the thumbnails which are all
selectable. Then, If I could get NVDA to read the tooltip associated with
each thumbnail....I feel that I will have made some progress. Any advice
would be appreciated.

Cheers, Reggie
