Re: Navigating the audible.com site with jaws
Morning,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Agree about the navigation issues with the Audible site. One simple thing that bother me was the labeling of the button to confirm a purchase. Not recalling that label at the moment, but it had nothing to do with what the button was meant to do.
I mention this as I called support and reported it. Though it took about six weeks or so, they eventually relabeled it. I am sure you hear the note at the top of the sites pages that they are making efforts to improve the site for screen readers. I have not seen any changes that have improved functionality. I think that it is time that we screen reader users start a little campaign to keep this issue at the fore. I love the sight and have figured little work arounds, but given that it is owned by Amazon, there should be enough funding to make the site truly accessible.
If we are emailing support, what about coming up with a subject line that we all use with our suggestion? Same could be done if we call. Any ideas?

Primarily I have these issues when following links in recommendation newsletters like our editors recommend blah blah blah. It seems the recommended titles are contained in listboxes though they don't seem to function like any listboxes I've ever seen before.
I'm using jaws on a windows 7 computer and see the same issues regardless of whether I access the site with firefox or internet explorer.
Interestingly, if I go to the audible site and perform a search for an author or title everything is fine and I can move around the page just as you describe. Apparently these listboxes are used only in certain situations like the recommendations I described above.
