NVDA and Website Acessibility?


David Russell <david.sonofhashem@...>
 

Hi NVDA Users,

Are there any services that knowingly test or rate websites or third
parties that provide services for websites such as those that offer
educational opportunities?

I was taking a distance learning course through a US University, free
of charge, but could not access the PDF documents, or uploaded work by
other classmates that we were to review and comment on.

I could not find a given link for support on this particular website.
Things were in levels, and were difficult to maintain in focus.
I notice a similar pattern with other websites, but it can be
rectified by directly going to a specific link when going to the
website itself by typing it in at the back end of the address.
This course does not allow for similar action. I consider it to thus
be nearly inaccessible.

If you disable the auto pdf reading in the browser it should prompt you for an action and I tend to go with download then I can look at the pdf and see what exactly it is in any software at my leisure.
