Re: TimeLife.com/Music only works in IE for me.
they may think the page is in conformance but it isn’t. If you up arrow one time when you are on the Sock Hop collection text using NVDA and the Brave Browser, a Chrome-based browser, you get to a link that says unlabeled and it is announced as a link. In other words, you hear unlabeled link. Pressing enter brings up what you want to see. Does JAWS not see this link? If not, I don’t know why nor if there is any setting that will allow you to see it. I’m doubtful but someone may know of or find a setting.
You’ll really wear out your socks. I think I saw that the collection has 235 songs.
So I’m thinking about buying from:
This is one of those websites that I can only make work with Internet Explorer, and maybe someone can tell me why’s this?
If I try to look at all of the different music selections they have with Firefox or Edge using JAWS 2021, I can navigate to the headings as heading level 2 gives all of the different things that can be ordered, but I can’t c see the track listing.
With IE, there’s some kinda graphics link that only IE sees.
When I had called them the guy said scroll down or something like that but I don’t understand what he is saying.
In Edge and Firefox, I can get to the very first one, there’s a Lifetime of Romance music CD.
If I hit learn more it’ll bring up that CD. But this is the only one I can make work out of the entire page of music on Firefox or Edge.
On their website it says call us if you have problems navigating our website. So that’s what I did. They say their website is compliant with W3G accessibility.
Here’s a perfect example of one that doesn’t work… for some reason.
With IE, if I go to the heading labeled the sock hop collection (which is a level 3 heading), just above the heading I see something that says
Link‑ Graphic‑ full/Sock-Hop-cover Graphic‑
This is a link that I can hit space or enter on and it will bring up the page with songs samples and a bit about the disk.
If I then hit
Link view tracks by disk,
I can see all of the tracks and samples.
However that view cover graphic is something I can only find in IE and not Firefox or edge.
I’ve got jaws set to this in IE,
Virtual Cursor OptionsGraphics Options
Now I do not have this set on a per application bases.
IN Edge its set like this…
General OptionsGraphics Labeled
Include Graphic Alignment Description checked‑
If I type the word link in the search field in JAWS verbosity I don’t see anything about links when looking at the edge browser which is strange.
In Firefox it’s set the same way as edge.
My first thought was that different web engines make different things work at times, but then it went to my mind that maybe I have JAWS set in such a way that it’ll skip over graphics? That’s why I checked each browsers jaws verbosity settings.
So any idea why this site works to view what I’m after only in IE?
I tried that browser dead last after trying edge (my default), and Firefox browsers next.
