Re: JAWS and blank sentences


Nikos Dimokas <dimokas@...>
 

I don't want to change the settings of screen reader. I would like to
understand why JAWS pronounces blank when the user uses arrows (down, up)
to navigate in the web page. The strange is that the screen reader says
blank before headings but not always. For example, before "Volume 1"
heading there is no blank.
Can anyone explain when JAWS says blank?

I tested the example code with Firefox 31.0 and JAWS 15.0.

Thanks in advance,
Nikos

There's a setting under Say All to turn the reading of blank lines either
on or off. Its right below the scheme menu, and two lines below the
say-all mode setting. I couldn't tell from your note; is this a
widespread problem, or does it do it in only one or two contexts? This
setting can be used across all programs, or can be set one program at a
time.

Hi everyone,

JAWS pronounces blank in some cases and i don't know how to stop it without
changing the setting of the screen reader. In the following example JAWS
says blank before "This is an Example" heading and before "Volume 2"
heading. Can anyone explain to me how i can fix it?

Below is the code example:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>Example</title>
</head>
<body>
<div>
<h1>This is an Example</h1>
<div>
<div>
<div>
<h2><label id="label1">Volume 1</label></h2>
</div>
</div>
<div>
<label role="button" aria-label="minus">-</label>
<input id="vol1" type="text" name="valueField1" value="80"
role="spinbutton" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="100" aria-valuenow="80"
autocomplete="off" aria-labelledby="label1"/>
<label role="button" aria-label="plus">+</label>
</div>
<div>
<div>
<h2><label id="label2">Volume 2</label></h2>
</div>
</div>
<div>
<label role="button" aria-label="minus">-</label>
<input id="vol2" type="text" name="valueField2" value="100"
role="spinbutton" aria-valuemin="0" aria-valuemax="200" aria-valuenow="100"
autocomplete="off" aria-labelledby="label2"/>
<label role="button" aria-label="plus">+</label>
</div>
</div>
</div>

</body>
</html>

thanks in advance,
Nikos
