Sorry for the confusion as my subject should have been "An odd issue relating to Eloquence SAPI from Codefactory and NVDA.
I also just tried deactivating and reactivating which solved the problem but still is strange since prior til now, I had no issues.

2) Pressing NVDA + enter.

Re: Trying to find where to click to register for a master class

 

Just as an FYI, in that page's source code, this appears to be the line used to create that non-button button.  I don't think I've ever encountered class "btn-shape" before.

<div class="btn-shape"><a data-fancybox data-src="#form" class="btn btn--md btn--yellow btn--float mx-md--auto mb-md--20 b-r--50">GET INSTANT ACCESS</a></div>

The inventions in HTML coding are still very active indeed.  [I'm sure someone will tell me, though, that btn-shape has been around forever after this.]

Re: mouse hover

Gene
 

I often find that on web pages, using NVDA, the mouse can't be moved to your current position.  I don't know if other screen-readers allow that.  But even if you could, it would be very cumbersome to use such a way of working in NVDA. 

In JAWS, when you are on such a link, you hear mouse over announced. There is a JAWS command to do the equivalent of hovering the mouse over the link.  You are told something like, page changes at line 11.  You can then use a jump to line command to jump to that line and see what has changed.  You can, as I recall, use a return to your previous position command when you want to go back to where you were.

With NVDA, you would have to hover the mouse, and with no feed back about where the page changed, look through the page to see if you could find where the new material is. 

I almost never miss information I want by not using this feature.  I can't say I don't miss any information but I have never missed the ability.  And in JAWS, I often find that mouse over links add nothing useful, maybe changing the page visually in some way in some place.

Others who use the Internet in different ways may have different opinions but I suspect that this is one of the most unneeded possible features and I suspect that that is why JAWS is the only screen-reader to have it.

Yet another example of why keeping up-to-date matters.  I've always said that old stuff eventually "becomes rickety" and it appears that even Bookworm followed that pattern as it aged.  And that's a program focused on the blind community.

The writers of that software have to "go with the ongoing flow" just like everyone else does if they wish to remain viable in the world of computing.

Re: NVDA quirk with the Bookshare Web page

Larry Higgins
 

Brian, Just to tie up a loose end, the same thing happens with the NLS BARD page. NVDA simply skips over the first book title heading. The only difference from one listing vs the other is that BARD uses heading 4, where Bookshare uses heading 2.

I forgot to mention, or to even remember, that I had made that particular page of new book listings into an app. I thought that might have made some kind of a difference, so I tried bringing it up within the browser itself, but this doesn't solve the problem.


Who knows, this may go toward fixing another irritation, that of links showing up from a previous page when using the next page link, but this is an entirely different issue. NVDA simply skips over the first book heading, making it necessary to shift backward to see the first book title heading.


This isn't what I would call a major issue, but simply a nuisance I hope can be fixed..

NVDA quirk with the Bookshare Web page

Larry Higgins
 

Listers,


I've lately noticed a quirk with NVDA when using the H to go through the book title headers, in that NVDA will ignore the very first header, and start with the second book title header, making it necessary to use the shift+H to move back to the first one. This doesn't happen with either JFW or my standby Window-Eyes. Anybody besides me notice this issue?


Thanks,


Larry

Actually, you probably won't.  If you open NVDA Settings (NVDA + N, P, S) the General Settings pane is what shows up first.  Almost centrally located in the pane are two checkboxes:
  1. Start NVDA after I sign in
  2. Use NVDA during sign-in (requires administrator privileges)   [Note: that means the account you're using must have admin privilege to use this option]

If both of those are unchecked, NVDA should not auto-start.  And those settings are associated with individual Windows user accounts.
