Re: netFlix search box

Peter Tesar

Hello List,

I found the NetFlix search box.
It is on the Browse page.

Using the JAWS virtual viewer, one line has the word:
This is not an object that you can tab to like a link.

The line below has:
unlabeled button

When I left click on the right side of the word "search", the edit box is announced. Then turn on the form mode, type the title, actor etc.
Then tab to and select the unlabeled button.

Thanks for suggesting the browse page.

I am using Netflix with IE11. It's working better than it used to. I can
find the search box now. My biggest problem now is removing DVDS from my
Cue. If you email off list, I will try to explain. Can't right now because I
will need to be on the site to go through the steps.

I think that it is a graphics issue. I have used both IE11 and Firefoxand
the changes made last year, have been worse for screen reader users.

I'm using the Canadian NetFlix site. Last year they updated the web site and
I lost access to the search field. It used to be an edit field that JAWS
could find, and now it is an icon that JAWS cannot find.

Do the American users of NetFlix have the same problem searching for a
title? Is there a way around.

Can anyone tell me the fix for the following?

I recently uninstalled IE11 reverting back to 10 then when I
experienced problems with how jaws was interacting with 10 I
reinstalled 11. It seems that on Netflix in particular the titles of
selections as links are now being read as numbers and not the written

Any suggestions?
