I'm not sure. I'll try Opera.

Hello, would anybody be willing to have a look at a webpage off-line for me.
It’s having similar issues with drop-down boxes, but I don’t think it’s
related to JavaScript.

I’ve never seen this particular behavior before, so I just want to
understand what’s going on.

Hmm. Were you using Chrome?

I'll have to double check to see if JavaScript is on in Chrome.

a login place, and you didn't say if you did so. I didn't look enough

entire home page appears accessible to me. In addition, between each of
navigation links is a link that says skip navigation links. You really
need one but since someone put a skip link after every navigation link,
strongly implies to me that the site was designed to be accessible, even
this or that accomodation may be overdoing it.

I'm not sure what accounts for your problems or if, given more
we can see them. But just going to the site and looking around doesn't
me any.

Hi all,

I just visited the following website:

I notice that when going there, there is a number sign at the end of
the address. There are multiple websites I've found like this, and
each time I've encountered issues.
On this particular site I believe the main links open up drop downs
with additional links underneath the main one. Is there a way,
via addons or other, to make this and other sites like this usable,
short of contacting the webmaster who may or may not change the links
to make them clickable? Jaws simply announces the links as mouse
overs, but has the same result as NVDA. I've come across sites where
to hover over content, you can simply activate object navigation and
route the mouse cursor to the link in question and more information
will be present. Not with this one, however...

Any help would be appreciated. Tried switching browsers as well.
