Issue With Lane Bryant Website and 'Press and hold" sign in button

Ron Canazzi

Hi Group,

Normally, with these commercial websites, I am pretty efficient with finding ways around various obstacles presented to screen reader users with respect to graphics, and other items presented by such sites. However, one stumps me completely. the Lane Bryant website: has a sign in button that identifies itself as 'press and hold.' When you try activating it with a screen reader, you get an authentication failure. I have cookies and JAVA script enabled, so I know that isn't the problem.

I have tried pressing and holding the space bar, switching to edit mode and doing the same, pressing enter, routing mouse to application position and clicking, and so on and nothing works.

Is there a technique for these web buttons that you can use with NVDA to activate such 'press and hold' items?

Thanks for any help.
