Re: Question

Uh, isn't all this information contained in the welcome message when you join the list? If it's not, i think it should be added so this kind of thing doesn't happen again.

Hi,

I'm familiar with the Jaws help function and so forth.  I also navigate
around Craig's List at ease on the normal pages of various classifieds
departments.  I once learned from them that those pages are designed and
maintained by a different group than the people who put up the forum pages
and help pages.  So what I'm describing is actually something that's coded
differently from the most standard, Jaws-accessible page.

However, I didn't happen to come across the Feedback link today, and would
certainly have gone there if I'd seen it.  jaws Find wouldn't have done me
much good if I didn't know I was looking for the word Feedback, you see.
Having the flu today isn't making me any smarter, either.  Talk about
disabilities!

Anyway, though I think we're describing different parts of the site, by
reminding me that there's a link called Feedback gives me the key to
communicate with them. Thanks a lot for taking the time and trouble to go
there.
Just one more thing:  As we don't seem to be talking about the same parts of
the site, I would like to know which link you started from to find the
Feedback form or link.  From the home page links, that is.  Was it Help that
you clicked on, and found Feedback on the first page you came to, on the
same page with the FAQ list?  If so, that was not the sloggy page I was
talking about.  I may be sick, but I ain't drunk.  It was sloggy, and you'd
know it too if you went there with Jaws.  Nothign to do with jaws Find or
anything.

Anyway, it all works out.  So:  Home page and Help link, then look for
Feedback?  If it's on that FAQ page, I could've just arrowed down to it,
too.  That's of big deal.  Don't go back there to see what I'm talking
about; it'll just be annoying to no purpose.

Yardbird, I went to the web page and here is a page that I got when I clicked on the "contact us" link. on this page is a link for "feedback" which tells you the forum where you can post your questions. I have not spent any time here but was just curious because of your post. I did not find the page mushy to navigate around. To dind things though, like the contact us link, I used the jaws find function to help facilitate finding text on the screen. good luck. john http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/ ----- Original Message ----- From: "Yardbird" <yardbird@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> To: "JFW List" <jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, September 16, 2005 3:13 PM Subject: Craig's List graphical password


Craig's List, the international online community based in San Francisco, has recently added a new and unwelcome quirk, as I just now discovered. If you wish to post an ad in any of the classified categories, which I do, you now have to create an account for yourself. And a feature of that procedure, and probably when logging onto the site thereafter, is typing in a password that-- you guessed it-- seems to be presented graphically. Worse than that, actually. If you click on a "what's this" link to learn more, or maybe to get to the displayed password, you wind up on what to jaws looks like a completely blank page.

Remembering that I once contacted them for help with another site navigation
issue a long time ago by an email address they provided, I went to the Help
page to look for that contact address.  But I couldn't find any such thing,
this time, just a FAQ page (which didn't mention account setup at all, never
mind blind issues), and there's also a link for what CL calls the Help Desk,
which from what I can make out (Jaws navigates it as if it's moving through
mud, so it's hard to figure out) is some kind of online forum with questions
and discussion.  I couldn't figure out how to find anything there for my
problem.


Has anyone else encountered this same hassle on Craig's List? Any suggestions? I'm really disappointed to find Craig's List so out of it in regard to this sort of thing, considering their very community-minded ethos. They provided one of the most effective online networks the past couple of weeks for arranging assistance and financial contributions for the victims of Hurricane Katrina; you'd think, etc.

thanks.
