Onelook is hard for me to use. Can't easily select the word you
want on the first suggestions list.
Can't close the auto correct button when focused.
Many tabs to go between sections.

There are a
couple of really weird goings on with NVDA and the Onelook results
page, and I can't figure out "who's at fault." I had offered this
as a possible choice for online dictionary since it is a
multi-dictionary search that presents things (visually, anyway) in
a very straightforward manner. This was on the JAWS list, and
someone noted they couldn't search by headings (which is
unsurprising, since that's not how the page presents results) but
when I went digging further, things got stranger. What follows is
my post there afterward, which I'd like to get some eyes on here:
You are right that you can't navigate by headings, as headings are
not used in the presentation of results. The word searched on has
links to each dictionary's information for it. If I hit NVDA+F7
and have searched on, say, "deshabille," there is a stream of
links reading deshabille, followed by a home link for the
dictionary and an info link - lather rinse repeat for the number
of dictionaries in which the word is located.
But, I cannot get single letter nav for links (k), unvisited link
(u), or visited link (v) to work at all. Yet, if I activate using
the elements list, the links are noted as visited after I've done
I have to decide whether this is something I want to report to
NVAccess or not, and will wait to do so until others have read
what I wrote above and may be able to offer a logical explanation
for this very odd (at least in my experience) behavior with NVDA
traversal of the dictionary search results page.
