Experimenting with NVDA to answer ranking questions


Cearbhall O'Meadhra
 

Hello, all,

 

I have recently discovered how to answer a ranking question in a survey form. I have colleagues with a visual impairment who are also users of NVDA and would like to practice on a sample of such a question. I have approached Microsoft without success. They say that they cannot provide a sample even though I clearly do not need an actual live survey.

 

A marketing survey would be a possible option. In such a survey the questions can be treated as live without causing a problem to the survey owner such as a shopping survey.

 

All suggestions welcome!

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

I don't understand the issue here, I have had no problems answering
ranking questions in surveys. I have, however, had issues with radio
buttons not being reported correctly. If I'm tabbing through a form
with radio buttons, a lot of times it just reads the radio buttons
with no context as to what the radio button is for. My workaround for
this has been to use arrow keys instead. Is there something I'm
missing here?

Hello, all,

 

Somebody replied this evening saying that they answer ranking question frequently with no problem. Unfortunately, I lost the contact.

 

If you find that ranking questions give you no problem, would you like to help me by letting me have a link to a recent form that worked for you? That is just what I need in order to assist by learning colleagues.

 

 

All the best,

 

Cearbhall

Cearbhall,

That was Bob Cavanaugh, in message  .

This topic also accidentally got split, so I've merged it back together and fixed the typo in the title so "ranking" is now correct.  I will ask anyone who wishes to give Cearbhall example URLs to do so on this topic, which can be identified because "ranking" is in the title, not the original topic.  Otherwise, it will split again.

I get this problem too, the other is that some forms are inconsistent as to where the button description is, or whether the ranking is high to low or the oteher way around or indeed if the button or description is first. Gets even worse when some are tables and others not. I think there is a lot of education needed for form designers.

Those are illustrations of why I say that people should be in browse mode in unfamiliar forms and down arrow through the form.  You may miss information if you just tab in any mode.  The information may be important or not, but either way, you may miss it.

You may see at times, for example, an example of how a field is intended to be filled out, such as a date format.

Try anything on https://www.surveymonkey.com/welcome/sem/?program=7013A000000mweBQAQ&utm_bu=CR&utm_campaign=71700000059189136&utm_adgroup=58700005812074793&utm_content=43700053053420456&utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=adwords&utm_term=p53053420456&utm_kxconfid=s4bvpi0ju&language=&test=&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwrzz8-W5-QIV5xPUAR0yLgruEAAYASAAEgJGTfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

That is where the majority of the surveys come from for the blind and they do a good job.

They even have samples.
