Re: words with no spaces on this web page?

Actually, when I copied the example, I was in browse mode. So it copied straight from the website to the email.

Subject: Re: [nvda] words with no spaces on this web page?
I just tried copying and pasting the text while in browse mode and there were no spaces. I don’t know if this would be an accessibility problem. If an incorrect carachter is being used, it may be but it may be that, whatever the case, NVDA should be made to recognize the carachter. It may be used elsewhere.
If you follow the resend confirmation link, you will see the page being discussed. I’m saying this as a general comment to anyone. Try things if they aren’t dangerous. You may find the solution to problems or you may be able to do something you are attempting.
In this case, I thought I might see some sort of registration but the page came up. Either way, I didn’t think following the link would be dangerous.
I saw the text with no spaces but if I turn off browse mode, select all and paste it to the clipboard and paste it into Notepad, the spaces are present.
Evidently, the site is using a nonstandard carachter for space which NVDA doesn’t recognize but which is recognized by the browser.
Hello. You can access this web page to see what I’m talking about. When I explore the page, I get words with no spaces, yet the sighted person sees words with spaces. I’ve been in touch with the expo guys, and they have been in touch with their developers who did this form and the site, and they suggested I use chrome, that failed, and brave failed. Here is an example of what I’m seeing.
The form where the radio buttons read correctly. The section reading “In-Person Registration - All Weekend ($70.00)” reads correctly as well, but what should I tell them about what’s going on. Narrator shows each word as a separate element by the way.
