Ok, that works. Thank you. A stupid workaround, but hopefully amazon will
change things back, not holding my breath, or the NVDA developers will
figure out how to work with this kind of change.

I need to correct 1 thing I said not alt tab but shift tab gets you to the
buy it now button and it works I've been doing it for the last 2 days!

to recap it's check submit queery then spacebar insert then shift tab to buy
now!

Thanks all for your messages and thoughts. Maybe it's time to open a
ticket
now that I know it's not me.
Incidentally, I tried it also on the portable ESR Firefox, one still in
the
version 52 series, latest Chrome, and latest IE, and all are showing the
no
numbered heading level. For me, tabbing around didn't work. I'll try
Travis's suggestions in a while.

Thanks, Travis. I will file this info away because I, too, use Kindle
Unlimited. I used it just the other day to grab a book and it worked
just fine: the correct buttons showed in the correct places and showed
as actual buttons. thank you. I wouldn't have even thought to route the
NVDA cursor to the buttton because I'm not as familiar with that as I
really need to be. I never used the virtual mouse cursor in System
Access when I used it and rarely ever used the JAWS cursor in JAWS when
I used that because I didn't really understand how it worked, but it
sounds like it's time for me to learn to understand it. LOL! Thanks again.

Someone suggested I roll back to Firefox ESR, but I don't know that that would fix the issue. I think I'll just try what you suggested instead. (Smile).

Re: NVDA 2018, excel row and column headers

Dear Dave,

Use NVDA + shift+c for column headings and NVDA + shift+r for row titles. If the Title row continues after a break with a blank cell, just place your cursor on the first cell of the new block in the first row as at first and press NVDA+ c.

All the best,

Subject: [nvda] Change on Amazon makes buying options less, possibly inaccessible with screenreaders while on product page

Up through yesterday, I had no trouble buying Kindle books through Amazon. Things were labeled, and easily findable. Today the area of the page where the buying options are seems to have changed.
There is now a new heading called "Buying Options." It's the first heading on the page. The interesting thing about this heading is that there is no number associated with it. Instead of saying "heading level 1," as the heading below it says, all is says is "heading."
I think the buy and read now links, along with the price that used to be readily visible are now hidden inside the new "heading" area. Arrowing down once leads to the "add to list" checkbox.
This has been confirmed both in Firefox 64 and Chrome 64 using Windows 7 64-bit and NVDA 2018.2.1.
If anyone else can confirm, and can have any idea on how to deal with this, that would be appreciated.
Here's an example. For the US, this book is free at least today, hence why I chose it, so trying to buy it won't cost anybody any money. And, yes, the page is the same whether a book is free or not:

I'm using NVDA 2018.2.1, win10 1803, and excel 2010. I'd like to get
NVDA to announce row and column headers as I'm going through the
spreadsheet. Pointers appreciated, it's been a while.

Thanks.

Re: java access bridge

JM Casey <crystallogic@...>
 

Only the database part of OpenOffice does. Not sure about Libre yet.

 

Although it took a while for me to uncover this, I believe newer versions of the Oracle (?) Java Runtime Environment include the Access Bridge, so you don’t have to download it. However I believe it still has to be enabled from within command prompt. I never did end up doing much of anything with it so maybe someone else should step in….

Open Office and Libra Office haven't needed JAVA in years.

Only if you have software that needs java. I think parts of Open
office/Libra Office need it the database etc, possibly.

Actually, the NVDA command for reporting dynamic changes is NVDA+5 not f5.

Try the command NVDA f5.  It toggles between report dynamic content changes on and off.  You want it on.

Oops! Forget my previous email, it was all my bad. I had Focus Moves Navigator Object set to off instead of on. Sorry for the false alarm!

Hello below is what I have for the command

I am going to blank my password can u tell me if this is correct? if it is correct it doesn't work

youtube-dl -u <hank.smith966@...> -p <your-xxxxxxxxxx> -x <your-https://www.youtube.com/feed/history>

The x swith will extract your videos from the web pages in their default format; that is, the format in which they were uploaded. I can't give you an --audio-format and --audio-quality switch because it can vary depending on the upload format of the videos in question.

Re: [SUSPECTED SPAM] [nvda] Change on Amazon makes buying options less, possibly inaccessible with screenreaders while on product page

Ervin, Glenn
 

Well, believe me, I tried everything.

If it takes more than that, it is not accessible in my opinion.

Web access should not be for the most skilled, and although I am not the most skilled, I know enough to teach people computer access.

So some solutions discussed here, if they are common solutions, then that may be common knowledge to most users, but if we need a work-around, that should be temporary until a company gets its act together.

There are so many people who know enough to get on-line but only a few of us who know some tricks to make it work.

The sighted don’t experience that, they only need to know how to move a mouse and not be afraid of trying something.

Most of the clients I work with can do eMail and word processing, and purchase something from a site that is basic, but when things pop up that even I can’t get through, I know that most of the people I work with could never get through it.

That is a problem with accessibility in my opinion.

Glenn

I don't use Amazon except very rarely but the following may be of use when on a product page.  In the past, separators were used extensively on product pages.  These have all been removed.  Moving by button will take you to different parts of the page somewhat like moving by separator used to do, from what I recall of how you could move by separator. 

 

As far as something identified as a button and not having the b command stop there is concerned, I'm not sure what is the cause of that, evidently some sort of coding.  So use screen-reader search now that the problem is known or if you are really close to the item because of how you have moved through the page, just tab, as has been stated.  Also, don't assume that the button won't work.  If you are using a different browser and/or a different screen-reader, it may.

I did ask them to report it to their accessibility team, but I hope it did get reported.
After wasting over an hour of my time last night, I was not in the mood to do any more.
Very frustrating.

I hope you reported the issue and that they have a good feedback system that can quickly fix stuff. I have not bought from them for some weeks, but if this is going global  somebody needs to contact their access team to point out the error. I bet its something simple in a template somewhere, this is often the  effect of just looking at a site with eyes of course. They should really know better.

I don't think it is just with NVDA.
Last night I tried to return an item I received from Amazon, and I could not complete the page, it kept telling me that Chrome's Java needed updating, but Chrome's help said it was up to date.
I tried Jaws too.
I tried I.E. and WaterFox to no avail.
I hate wasting my time to not have a site work for the Blind.
I wound up having to call customer service and finish it that way.

Up through yesterday, I had no trouble buying Kindle books through Amazon.
Things were labeled, and easily findable. Today the area of the page where the buying options are seems to have changed.
There is now a new heading called "Buying Options." It's the first heading on the page. The interesting thing about this heading is that there is no number associated with it. Instead of saying "heading level 1," as the heading below it says, all is says is "heading."
I think the buy and read now links, along with the price that used to be readily visible are now hidden inside the new "heading" area. Arrowing down once leads to the "add to list" checkbox.
This has been confirmed both in Firefox 64 and Chrome 64 using Windows 7 64-bit and NVDA 2018.2.1.
If anyone else can confirm, and can have any idea on how to deal with this, that would be appreciated.
Here's an example. For the US, this book is free at least today, hence why I chose it, so trying to buy it won't cost anybody any money. And, yes, the page is the same whether a book is free or not:
