Re: F123.org.

The sad thing about this is that it is supposed to be a project for accessibility, and the web page is not accessible.
I keep saying, one step forward, three steps back with technology.

I couldn't view any of these buttons with JAWS and Internet Explorer.

Time for an e-mail to support@freedomscientific.com.

It's getting harder and harder for them to keep up with the changing
trends in web coding. It's also awful for those of us who are sighted
tutors because there's a trend toward making objects appear to be
something that they're not. The dreaded link button that looks like a
button (and is meant to) to those who can see but is actually a link as
far as JAWS and the actual mechanism of action is concerned.

There are three objects located to the right side of the page, one
appears to be an edit box for subscribing to their e-mail and a search
box (but the language in that remains Portuguese in those even after the
rest of the page is shifted to the chosen language) and the language
chooser dropdown directly below those.

I should have mentioned before the direct links to the pages in
languages other than Portuguese:

English: http://f123.org/en

French: http://f123.org/fr

Spanish: http://f123.org/es

If you change the language to other than the default then the list
includes Portuguese and notes that it's Brazilian dialect.
