Re: problems with gmail


I just tried the standard view and that may explain it.  I found that if one or presumably more, messages are checked, I can find the spam and delete button with the NVDA find command.  If they aren't checked, I can't.  The standard view appears to be more context sensitive than simple HTML.

I don't know why.  I found them both using the NVDA find.  I was using
Chrome but I don't think the browser would matter.  I started from the top
of the page.

search edit box, I never land on either button and get a not found.  And
I've tried having focus anywhere I can think of having focus before
commencing the search.

But when I brute force my way around, and hit each, they are announced by
