NVDA and Disqus


Hope Williamson
 

I was using Firefox at the time, I think. Most likely I didn't test it
on more than one browser, because that's the browser that particular 
Twitter account is logged into, and I was authorizing via Twitter. It
did post in the end, I just went back and looked at it. It just looked
like it didn't at the time.

Did you only try one browser? It wasn't with Disqus, but on a blog site, I wasn't able to post a reply using Chrome but with Firefox I was.

Disqus will make you register most of the time. It's gotten worse over
the years, the last time I tried to use it was a couple weeks ago and I
couldn't. As in the comment wouldn't post, after I was logged in.

I can't remember where I was using it when I was having problems with
it. After I was all logged in, and the comment wouldn't post, I just
gave up. Oh wait, it was https://techwaifu.com/

Disqus is very widely used, so at this point since the comments/discussion bit has been identified, I will be curious if anyone else using any other site that also employs Disqus for its comments is encountering the same issue, and with onset at the same time, or not so.  That would help to further narrow the scope.

NVDA and DisqusI don't use the site. Do you need to register to leave comments? Aside from that, I can give you a work around. Write your comment in Notepad and then copy it to the clipboard. Paste it into gthe comment area. Unload and run NVDA again and make sure it is as you want it, then send it. I've seen some multiline edit fields on web sites that don't allow you to see what you've written properly or efficiently and that is the method I use in such cases.

I agree with Brian that the ;problem is likely a change on the web site. While possible that NVDA has become corrupted, it is unlikely, particularly since you don't complain about other edit fields and since problems with multiline edit fields are somewhat commohn..

Greetings,

Please help. About a week ago, when I try to make a comment on www.breitbart.com, NVDA goes silent and does not read my comment. When I restart NVDA, it then reads the comment but it does not speak the letter when I move the cursor thus I am unable to edit. The website in question uses Disqus. I have making comments on Breitbart.com for a long time. This is very new.

Thanks for any help.

Blessings

Pascal
