webpage links


Monte Single
 

I am using current versions of nvda and chrome in win 7.

When I go to the web link below;  I cannot activate many of the links on the page.

When I press l a few time I land on a list which says 14 items.

I can arrow up and down through the list, but I cannot hear the price of the item nor does anything happen when I press enter on any of the 14 links.

Suggestions?

Monte, at the very bottom of the page, there is a dialogue where you
need to press the space bar & go to your store. This is just a flyer.
Conversely, there is a link you can use to sign in toward the top of
the page if you have an account.

Canada has definitively put the fear of the deity into these folks for
a fact lol. I think you'll find it's quite accessible once you sign in
& actually go to the store where you wish to shop.

Monte,

           I seem to recall your having asked about his recently, but I know that the link you provided the first time, when activated, went to a plain-text-based page that looks nothing like the Extra Foods/Loblaw's site that the one you gave this morning does.   There's nothing there that matches your description.

           Since I'm based in the US it also appears that Extra Foods is not accepting that link as a direct link to the flyer for whatever store happens to be Store ID 9054.  I am asked, and it sounds like Jackie is being asked, too, to select my store.

Hey Brian, I really think if he were to select a store/sign in, he'd
find what he expected to find. Could be wrong, been there before, will
be again, my advice might be worth precisely what he paid for it, but
that's what I'm thinking. Their accessibility policy is pretty clear,
w/all sorts of ways to leave feedback if stuff isn't working for
folks. Wish more companies in the US were like that.

Jackie,

          I'm not disagreeing with you in any way.   But I am positive that this issue was just discussed recently, and for store flyers for a store based in Canada, and that the webpage that popped up in that conversation had nothing to do with what's popping up for this one.

          What I remember of what I saw then sounds much more like what Monte actually described, so I'm trying to see if there may be a connection.

As an aside, one of the things in the Group Rules, which is really a strong suggestion, not something that can be or is enforced:

"Think very carefully about the title you are going to give any topic you post.  The topic is the first (and, sometimes, only) thing a member sees and that may be how they decide if they’re going to look further.   Generic titles, such as “Help Me!,” are not helpful because they give no idea about what.  Compare that to something like, “NVDA not reading Excel cell contents,” or, “NVDA setting for pronouncing numbers,” where the exact issue where help is needed is front and center.   Even something like, “Need help with the following . . .,” lets the reader know that you are going to present a list of issues."

Generic topics, and this is an example of one of those, make it very difficult for anyone searching the archive to zero in on prior topics.  The fact that the word "flyer" exists in the actual messages does make this one easier to find, though.

Having a truly descriptive topic, where it gives the reader a good idea of the exact nature of the issue, is useful for all involved.  I can't find the previous one, either, but sometimes that's because it  was in the Win10 for Screen Reader User's or JAWS groups.  Over time it does get difficult to remember who said what, and where, as there's significant overlap in the membership in these three groups.

I haven't looked at the page yet but I suspect that, at lease for some links, images are coming up which your screen-reader can't read.  I'm suspicious of pages that present material from flyers.  My experience is that much such material is actually images of the flyer or part of the flyer.

If you go to a link for a food on the page such as Pillsberry wraps,that's just very roughly what the link says and the spelling is phonetic and you press enter on the link, it appears the link does something and it is shown as a visited link.  But I suspect, as I did before I looked. that something completely visual is brought up, such as an image of the flyer.  I can't be sure, but I think you are actually on that store part of the ssite.  The links I am referring to are below text that says something like food in store.  I suspect this site is inaccessible.  One thing you could try is downloading the page as a PDF.  Then, you could try recognizing it with OCR to see what you see.
