Re: Skipping the advertisements in web browsers.

Gene,

I think you’re right in that searching for buttons may be the fastest way to move to the end of a form. It’s not 100% guaranteed that it will work in all cases since some forms might have more than one button but I think it’s the best that we can do for now.

While in browse mode, you could try using the letter b to move by button.  Most forms have a submit button at the end and most fields in forms aren't buttons.  I haven't tried this, but that may be the fastest way to get to the end of forms in general.

I’m not aware of a reliable method to move to the end of a form on a Web page. The Window-Eyes screen reader had this capability and I can see why it would be useful but I don’t believe there’s a way to do it with NVDA. If the capability exists in a third party addon I’m not aware of it but I certainly haven’t looked through all features in all existing addons..

Ravi,

Regarding ads you can do more than skip them. Why not block them with an ad blocker such as

UBlock Origin.

Because ad blockers are not relevant to NVDA itself it would be better to talk about this type of software on the chat subgroup.

Hi,

Is there a simple way to skip the advertisements in a webpage?

Instead of pressing the down arrow key several times till the end of the advertisement, any simple way to reach the next required text or data?

Also, a same way to skip the form fields in a page?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Ravi.
