Re: when on a web page nvda doesn't select a link

 

hi.
i use only mozilla firefox.
when i press insert+f7 i see the list of links.
use only up or down arrow key to find my desire or i press the first
letter of it.
then, press enter to activate it.
this method always works for me without problem.
God bless you and i hope that my comment helps you.

with different browsers. I also make sure whether a web page is
maximized, so that NVDA is successful in communicating with it.

Re: NVDA doesn't always see buttons on a web page

 

hi.
you can for example edit everything you want then, use down arrow to
hear botton.
sometimes bottons have labels and sometimes not.
in my experience, immediately after compleating form filds and fil the
desired informations, i use down arrow or tab key and nvda announces
botton.
in google also, sometimes nvda search botton and sometimes only botton.
hope that helps.
God bless you.

pressing enter whether I can move or not or whether I hear any button
announced or not. Sometimes, I try tabbing and pressing enter a number of
times regardless of whether I hear any feedback or not. But I often use the
mouse technique I described first. It often works and, in my experience, it
works more often than the pressing enter method does.

also, what we are discussing is an example of why demanding Windows users
should have more than one screen-reader available. At times, JAWS will
allow a Flash button to be activated and NVDA won't. At times, the reverse
is true. Often, both screen-readers can be used successfully.

the play button may be a control in a Flash player. Try going to the page,
then make sure you are at the top, Type the letter o and see if you land on
an embedded object. Press enter and try tabbing and shift tabbing. Do you
see any buttons? Also, if that doesn't work, start over. Close and reopen
the browser, go to the web page again, make sure you are at the top then
type o to move to the embedded object. Now route the mouse to the current
location of the object navigator with the command numpad insert numpad
slash, the same key as for left click.

Now press numpad slash by itself to left click the embedded object. Does
the file start to play?



Remember two things when following these instructions for working with the
mouse. First, before starting the second set of instructions, make sure you
are in object review. Issue the command numpad insert numpad 1. If you
hear somethin like no previous review, you will already be in object review.
If you hear something that isn't object review but some other review,
continue to issue the command until you get to object review.



Remember not to press enter on the embedded object.

And one more thing:

When I said to start over and close the browser, then open it and go to the
page again, I did so to avoid any possible problems. I wanted you to start
from the beginning so we both knew exactly what you were doing. But when
not learning from these instructions, you don't have to do that. You can,
as I recall, return to the page by using a book mark without closing the
browser first. That will save you time. But if you can't get the file to
play, you can try closing the browser first to see if that makes any
difference. you can't get the file to play, you can close the browser, as I
said initially.

Hi Group,


Another technique that works on a few pages where NVDA does not see or does not activate buttons is to move to just before where the button is located and then to switch to edit mode with insert + space bar.  ten use the tab key to move to the button or sometimes it will say clickable item.  Then press space bar or enter and sometimes a player or link will be activated. I see this with the Tunein website for premium content.

the play button may be a control in a Flash player.  Try going to the page, then make sure you are at the top,  Type the letter o and see if you land on an embedded object.  Press enter and try tabbing and shift tabbing.  Do you see any buttons?  Also, if that doesn't work, start over.  Close and reopen the browser, go to the web page again, make sure you are at the top then type o to move to the embedded object.  Now route the mouse to the current location of the object navigator with the command numpad insert numpad slash, the same key as for left click. 
Now press numpad slash by itself to left click the embedded object.  Does the file start to play? 
 
Remember two things when following these instructions for working with the mouse.  First, before starting the second set of instructions, make sure you are in object review.  Issue the command numpad insert numpad 1.  If you hear somethin like no previous review, you will already be in object review.  If you hear something that isn't object review but some other review, continue to issue the command until you get to object review. 
 
Remember not to press enter on the embedded object. 
And one more thing:
When I said to start over and close the browser, then open it and go to the page again, I did so to avoid any possible problems.  I wanted you to start from the beginning so we both knew exactly what you were doing.  But when not learning from these instructions, you don't have to do that.  You can, as I recall, return to the page by using a book mark without closing the browser first.  That will save you time.  But if you can't get the file to play, you can try closing the browser first to see if that makes any difference.  you can't get the file to play, you can close the browser, as I said initially.

Subject: [nvda] NVDA doesn't always see buttons on a web page

Hi, NVDA doesn’t see the play button on a webpage however Jaws sees it.  What is the reason for this?
