Are you using any popup blockers or ad blockers or noscript or anything that may be causing this problem?  If the site is coded so unconventionally, as Brian says, who knows what is causing the problem.

Yes I tried turning off browse mode and then clicking, no luck, however I notice the links say visited link, so I find that strange also.

Take care

I'm beginning to wonder if there is a problem with your system, I don't know what it might be.  Did you do the test of turning off browse mode and clicking links?  We need to determine if this is a UIA problem or something else.

Scott,

        The site you list has another twist on the hover over theme but it's not hover over.   That page is, overall, one of the most complex I've encountered in a long time.

         It's difficult to know what to experiment with.  If you have a specific control you'd like for me to explore to start let me know what it is.

By the way, my Firefox just updated to 61.0.2, and now Ctrl+D works as expected. Who knows what was wrong... Never mind; the main thing is that the problem solved itself.

Scott,

            I can activate the Get Started link (which, by the way, is another of those loathsome "link disguised visually as a button" objects),but what it does is something I've never seen (literally) before:  It just slides you down the page so that you are placed, without focus on anything, in an area of the page just below two menu buttons, the first of which is a dropdown for "I am" (you're presented with a list of occupations) and the second "I speak."  Immediately below that is a scrollable table (layout wise, but not as a table object) of various sites, with a collection of links for each one.

            This page is just bizarre.  If you can see it's easy enough to figure out certain parts of it, but even then overall it does not follow anything that I'd call a recognizable convention for web coding that I've ever encountered.   It's overall design is beyond awful.

             If you are determined to try to work with these folks I would definitely give their mobile app a try and then give them a businesslike earful about just how awful their website is from an accessibility perspective.

Re: The Way NVDA Announces Punctuation As I Type

hurrikennyandopo ...
 

Hi


If you use the nvda key + 2 key it will turn speak typed characters either on and off. If you use the nvda key + 3 it will either turn the speak typed words on or off. The nvda key is a modifier key which is either the insert key, the extended insert key or the caps lock key..


You could also try using the nvda key + letter P. This will toggle between how much punctuation is spoken.

Any thoughts welcome.

Re: How to configure Switch Synth?

Hi Larry,

Yes, the add-on is loaded and enabled ok. And I hear “three” with Ctrl+Shift+NVDA+3, “four” with Ctrl+Shift+NVDA+4, “five” and “six”. I don’t see where to configure Preferred setting though.

 

BTW in Settings / Windows 10 OCR, the Recognition language is English but there’s an option for Chinese.

 

Thanks for your help!

Is this addon enabled and loaded successfully? If so.

After pressing NVDA+Ctrl+Shift+3  if the slot is empty ,you will hear three. Then you can config a preferd setting.Press NVDA+Ctrl+Shift+V ,you will hear "Saved".Repeat this procedure on other slots  then  synth setting will be switched to corresponding slot after press certain hotkey.

If you are saying you use the no script add on, then JAVA scripts are blocked and it is safe to download.

I suspect it is.  CTRL+D works perfectly under Firefox 61.0.1 on my machine, which is updating Firefox in response to my checking my current version number.

Yes. And it happens only on 61.0.1. Non on the 63 nightly version. It might be my installation.

No idea.

Sorry, my bad. I meant Ctrl+D. I got confused by the messages I had been
reading, about links that can't be clicked...


It's Ctrl+D that doesn't seem to work here now.

Thanks for correcting me.

Ciao,

I notice this behaviour more and more in Firefox lately.

Plus the fact that I don't seem to be able to add a site to favourites
by pressing Ctrl+Enter, as I've always done up to now.

Ciao,

Hi all.

I hope someone can help me here.

Once in a while, more and more lately it seems, I can not click with
the enter key, or control enter, or the space bar and even with the
num pad using numpad 0 enter.

So how do you click on a link in that case?

Thank you

Scott

1.On your computer, open *Chrome*.
2.At the top right, click More Settings.
3.At the bottom, click Advanced.

If you get it after downloading something from Send Space, then you have probably contracted ad ware from being a free user and downloading from Send Space with scripts enabled. 
 
You should never download anything from Send Space as a free user with JAVA scripts enabled and if you use Internet Explorer, Active X controls should be disabled as well. 
 
Send Space has a long and bad record of having hacked advertising on their site that, when you download files places unwanted programs on the machine or actual malware.  The site itself is clean but they are much more likely to have hacked third party advertising than other reputable sites. 
 
If you are a paid user, you don't have to worry.  Advertising isn't displayed.  If you take the precautions I've discussed as a free user, you don't have to worry.  No advertising is displayed.
