I have worked with there marketing department about three years ago when it all of a sudden wasn't accessible. I used the classic version which worked very well. Well to my surprise when I loaded the page, it was totally different and didn't appear to be accessible at all. I spent about an hour trying to figure it out and just gave up and we went to the store and got the few things we needed. However this put me in a bad mood since I had spent a good deal of time working with publix in the past. This afternoon, I decided to look at the site once more. By the way it is publix.com As my subject says publix goes shoplocal.com good or bad! well my experiences with shoplocal.com haven't been the best but apparently some things have changed for the better or for at least the publix part. Shoplocal.com is a large internet advertising company on the web that handles chain and private advertising for your community. When I first went to the new publix page there were a lot of on clicks on the page and a few links that certainly didn't get me to where I wanted to be. After examining the page from the top, I found text that said "enhanced accessibility mode on using flash mode and just below that was a link to switch to html mode for better accessibility and bingo it worked beautifully. I read the accessibility info and found it amusing how the latest accessibility test had been with Jaws V9.0 and listed all the jaws commands regarding how to bring up a list of links by pressing insert F-6 and the accelerator keys for navigating the various heading levels supported by jaws. After setting my zip code and selecting my store, I was able to move around the page and Window-eyes read the links that were in the list automatically. For instance when you get to the weekly add the default is to view by department such as baby care buy one get one free, bakery ect. As the links are read, you are also told how many items are on sale. When you press enter on a department link Window-eyes automatically starts reading the item name and price. I just press any key to stop the speech and use down arrow to start reading the list of items from the top. Pressing alt-left arrow takes you back to the list of department links at the location you were prior Pressing enter on the item links reads a description. I was able to open coupon links and find the print button. Once you have selected your store and selected the weekly add link, just save it to your favorites by default the link will be Publix weekly add. When you go to that link, you will be on the add page so you only have to go through the selection process once. I guess I will have to see if shoplocal has done the same for there main site, I think the site is shoplocal.com Robert for that department Check out the TABI resource web page at http://acorange.home.comcast.net/TABI and please make suggestions for new material. if you'd like to unsubscribe you can do so through the freelists.org web interface, or by sending an email to the address tabi-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word "unsubscribe" in the subject.
