[access-uk] Re: Anoying 'transparant' word on website

Ray, had a look at this myself. Speaking as one person who's a magnifier and screan reader user what I'm seeing and hearing is interesting.

Yep, the webpage is reading the text fine. However, app reader (zoomtext) is reading out the blank areas inbetween text. That's where I'm hearing the word "transparent".

I could get by on this but, I'd find it distracting in the end. So, not helpful at all. I'm pondering on whether to send the website address to aisquared support. I'd be interested to know what they make of this.

The first time I've hit on a website where app reader behaves in this way.

Subject: [access-uk] Anoying 'transparant' word on website



Maybe one for Tink, and knowledgeable web designers, and I've brought this up
on the Window-Eyes list and it seems the problem I have with a website is
down to a duff design error, although probably one designed and written in to
help us, apparently!


Go to:

www.workdirections.co.uk

Very likely when the screen is read to you you will hear the word
'transparent being read all over the place. I'd like JFW and Dolphin users
to confirm this - or otherwise. The explanation seems to be around an issue
with Active X or 'on clicks' -being labelled for our benefit but - my
knowledge is virtually non-existent around these subjects.


So I would be glad if some here would confirm whether this is a problem for
them or not. When I'm more certain of my ground I can contact the web
master. Seems a shame because, on the face of it, it seems they've made an
attempt at accessibility.
