[access-uk] Re: Wikipedia now less accessible

I attempted using the F key to find the field. It reports there are no fields on the page. I arrowed down the page tho and saw where an edit field should by rights be, plus the Go button after it, but no accessible field. It ties in with a site redesign they've done.

Any other jaws 5.0 people out there havinng troubles? And if this is going to be an issue I feel Freedom Scientific should perhaps issue a free patch to sort this problem out.

Hi,

The only thing that I have found is that with Jaws 7.10 with the new way
they read out edit fields, you have the huge long descriptive text
before the actual edit prompt.

In JFW 5 can you go to the first edit control on the page using a
hotkey?

Andrew.

For waht it's worth Damon, Wikipedia is fine with Window-Eyes 5.5

I assume there is just the one search edit box within a form which W-E
picks
up fine.

Is it just me or have the edit fields disappeared off Wikipedia? It means that I can no longer search it.

I'm using jaws version 5.0. WE saw a similar thing happen in Google
Local a
few months ago. Is this some new way of coding edit fields that is
invisible
to screenreaders? What's going on here? With Google Local we discovered
that
people using versions above jaws 5 could use the edit fields with no
problem.

This is a real blow, I use Wikipedia a lot.
