Re: Can NVDA Access Font Attributes for Non Standard Web Page Links?

Never thought of using that option Gene. Thanks for alerting me to it. Going to try it out now.

There is a setting in NVDA in the document formatting dialog that says Announce formatting changes after the cursor (can cause a lag. If you turn that on, it may do what you want but it may be far too verbose, I don't know how many changes may occur on a typical web page as you move down it, but it may be cumbersome. You may want to see what happens, however.

Did try that NVDA shortcut key combination Gene. Will test some other
routines that may yield some sort of difference. Just figured since
there was a change in color some coding in the HTML would be visible in
helping NVDA speak it.

Have you tried NVDA key f before and after activating the link or whatever the control is? You may hear a different color, though I don't know if such changes are properly available when in browse mode. You may want to compare before and after activation with browse mode on and off, switching settings before and after activation so you get responses in both settings for before and after.

This problem has been bugging me for a while, so I've decided to ask
much smarter people here on the list about it.


Decided to tinker with my old TP-Link Archer C3150 router for I'm
looking to replace my current Verizon Quantum Gateway Router.


In the Archer C3150 admin area the various settings are toggled on/off
by clicking what seems to be a non standard HTML link. Not sure if it is
created with Java Script or DHTML. The problem is that I have no verbal
confirmation from NVDA if the font has changed color, face type or anything.


Got visual assistance and I'm told the link turns "Green" when toggled
on, and "Red" when toggled off.


Is there any add-on or NVDA keyboard shortcut available that would allow
me to access all font attributes of a letter the mouse pointer or
Browser cursor is focused on?


The background/foreground color, type, size etc? There has too be a way
for me to get some sort of feedback on these links from NVDA.


Having the "Clickable" option under Document Formatting in NVDA
preferences enabled is very helpful. If I didn't have that turned on, I
wouldn't even know the text associated with some of these options is a
link at all.


I also encountered similar situations in the Tidal, Spotify and MyMedia
(Alexa skill) apps. Specifically when accessing the settings page for
modifying important options.


Any recommendations on what I can do when trying to navigate pages
containing these new fangled visually esthetic links?


I'm using NVDA 2020.1 by the way under Windows 10 2004.
