[access-uk] Re: The "move Button" on BT Yahoo Internet and The Standard Yahoo Mail Screens

Hmm, just checked the same button in Hotmail. This button does what Yahoo's
Move button does, only its called Put in Folder. Guess what, Jaws jumps right
over it.

Right on, Timothy. I'm on Yahoo.com and the move button doesn't do a darned
thing. Space bar, entr button. Nothing.

Subject: [access-uk] The "move Button" on BT Yahoo Internet and The Standard
Yahoo Mail Screens

Hi fellow listers,
 
This may be a long shot!  but here goes!  <smile>  I am a reasonably
experienced JAWS user and general PC user too, and yet one thing has stumped
me for the last year or so, since Yahoo re-designed their mail page!  which
was, about the same time as they joined forces with BT, when they re-designed
BT's to be like the standard Yahoo mail, and as such the problem is on both!
Since then in both the 'move button has been in my experience inaccessible
and so I wonder, if it has been just me.  I can activate it with the enter
key but then the options of my folders, come up, now in my case, I have a
little residual vision so, awkwardly perhaps I can get by with the mouse if I
get stuck, but I do tend to rely on JAWS and to the best of my JAWS and
computer knowledge, the menu does not come up in a recognisable and standard
way that can be read by a screen reader such as JAWS.  I should point out a
few things also:
 
1.  It has on very sporadic occasions, worked, which I cannot explain, the
last times was months ago
2.    I use nowadays JAWS 6.2 and it still doesn't work!
3.  I did about a year ago, contact technical support about this at BT Yahoo
Internet, and told them it effected Yahoo as well (as I have an e-mail
addresses with the ordinary yahoo as well), as well as confirming what the
access problem was! and they seemed at first, determined to sort out the
problem!  and said they would get back to me!  
 
This is all particularly strange I think, as most of Yahoo's options since
again, about this time, have been given special keyboard shortcuts and  yet
this "move button" which is where you can move an e-mail into another folder,
has become less accessible than before, in fact I feel it has become
completely inaccessible!  What a contrast!  <smile> 
 
Now I was away from home for some months of this year and overlapping the end
of last year, but as  far as I can tell, after that initial phone call from
BT Yahoo, saying that they would look into it, I have heard nothing.  So, I
thought, I would finally ask other blind or visually impaired computer users,
and particularly those using JAWS, if they have had a similar problem, if
they have solved it  and if so how!  
 
Apologies if this has been asked before!Out of curiosity I was subscribed to
the 'access-UK' list on yahoo on one of my E-mail accounts, has this list
replaced it and when exactly when?
 
I would be most appreciate any ideas to enlighten this issue regarding BT
Yahoo Internet's and standard Yahoo's "Move Button",, as I have never got to
the bottom of this!...
