Gerald,
 
Using IE 11 with Windows 10, JAWS 2018, I just went to the Directions for me website and typed in Stove Top Stuffing in the search field and it came up with 26 results. I got no error message.

Well, maybe this web site only works with IOS.  I have contactedHorizons for the Blind, the owner of the Directions for Me site, but have thus far received no response, which leads me to believe that this web site may have  been abandoned. The fact that another list member also reported receiving an error message when trying to search for a product on Directions for Me using IE 11,means that I am not the only one encountering this problem.

I just tried doing a search on directionsforme.org just to confirm for myself that indeed the website still works for me.  And yes the website still works. I went as far as searching for a brand name “Green Giant” & opening to the specific product page “Peas & Carrots” to get heating & nutritional info. So not sure why the website works for some & not others. I’m using Safari with the latest IOS 11.x.x I’m not sure if the “experimental Features” in Settings, Safari, Advanced, Experimental Features the default settings has anything to do with me to be able to use the website & others can not.

I just searched using Firefox 52x ESR with JAVA scripts enabled and got proper results.  I don't know what accounts for different results.

I hadn't done a search before, I just went to the site.  I searched for the word chicken and had no problems.  I also searched for
Gorton's fish sticks and had no problems.  I have JAVA scripts turned off but I doubt that is relevant.  If others report problems, I'll do a search with JAVA scripts on and see if that is, indeed, a factor.

Well, using either IE 11 or Firefox 52 ESR, this is what I get when I type “chicken” into the search field on the Directions for Me home page:

 

Whoops, looks like something went wrong.

Hi,

 

I just went to the directionsforme.org website on my iPhone using Safari & had no trouble when I entered the word chicken into the search field. I was presented with over 500 products.

 

Donna

 

 

For the past week or so, the Directions for Me web site does  not seem to be working.  No matter what I enter in the search field, I get some kind of weird error page.  Has anyone else noticed problems with Directions for Me?  Is it possible that this very useful site for finding accessible cooking directions for thousands of products has been shut down or permenantly disabled?  Thanks for any feedback.

 

 

 

Gerald
