Honey - Browser Extension that finds Promo Codes on Websites


Don H
 
Edited

There is a extension for browsers called Honey that automatically searches for promo codes on certain web sites.  After installing the extension to Google Chrome and going to amazon Honey puts up some info on the web page that it seems that NVDA can't get to. Anyone using Honey with NVDA with any success?  Talking about using it on a Win 10 system with latest version of Google Chrome and NVDA 2020.2.


 

Amended the title to make it clear what this is about.  Also, for those interested, see:

I haven't tried it, but it sounds like it might be similar to things like Grammarly in that it puts a visual overlay over a page which works for a sighted person, but doesn't interact with screen readers.  It is worth contacting the people who make Honey if you haven't already to ask about their accessibility testing.

I use it and it works fine, however, if you clicked on the coupon  it will take you to  another page where you need sighted help to  read the code itself.

The information usually top of the page, will tell you if there are coupons or lower prices on other stores.
