Re: words with no spaces on this web page?

I sent them the feedback at about 1 this morning. They are going to forward the stuff to the devs, in fact, the devs have already been in contact with the person and the person has already been in touch with me. We’ve been having this conversation since Saturday so here’s hoping things get fixed for either this year or next year. I’ve sent them the feedback about the empty elements and how it would be best to go about fixing it. I’m not sure if this is both nvda and chrome’s fault for rending the page, or if nvda should ignore empty elements like this and read them as a space? A sighted person does so nvda should as well, maybe? I really don’t know.

Subject: Re: [nvda] words with no spaces on this web page?
I saw a message from a list member saying that the site reads correctly with Firefox. I just checked and I can confirm that.
Also, Firefox doesn’t stop at the Resend Authorization link. it displays it at the top of the page but loads the page.
Since the spaces problem occurs with Chrome-based browsers and screen-readers, is this something the site needs to deal with, NVDA needs to deal with, or Chrome?
I didn’t say to refresh the page. The resend authorization is a link. Press enter. It is asking, for something to be sent. I didn’t think pressing enter on the link would be likely to solve the problem. it did and a cookie was placed on my machine so I can return to the site and not receive the resend authorization link again. The page opens.
My point is a general one and I’m using this situation as an illustration. There are times when people know something is safe and may solve a problem but they don’t try it because they are afraid anyway. If people really don’t know if something is safe, I’m not saying they should try it. But I think it happens enough to comment on that people are afraid when they know something is safe and they don’t try something. It builds confidence to do what you know is alright to do and see that it causes no problems.
i tested again by refreshing the page and recieved server not found.
