Hi,

I actually don't use NVDA much, its more just there as a backup in case jaws
doesn't work, so I'm not up to date with the different NVDA controls. But
using arrows /cursor keys the checkboxes on amazong are a little confusing.
What I do is go to the top of the page, then press the F key to cycle
through edit boxes and checkbox's etc., for some reason everything seems to
have two checkbox's, but its only one of them you need to actually
click/select. using the F key, when you reach the return options you'll hear
checkbox , with no other speech afterwards, ignore this checkbox. then press
F key again it will then read out your product , it's a really long bit of
text as it reads all its order numbers etc. here so it takes NVDA a while
to read it all, but there is actually a check box here , this is the one you
want to check, you can either wait until its finished speaking or just press
space bar, the first time you press space it says un checked, press it a
second time and then it will say checked, you can then tab to the drop down
box which lets you select reason for return, select that and then you should
be good to go. Sorry for the long email , hope this all makes sense and you
manage to get it all sorted.

Thanks, Paul. I tried NVDA, but it kept saying "checkbox" every time I
pressed an arrow key to navigate. I did notice that there is a more recent
version of NVDA available than the one I have, so I will upgrade and try
again.

Hi,

Yeah I've had this problem too, although its not a perfect solution the only
way round this I've found is to shut down jaws and open NVDA, using NVDA you
can then select the tick box , plus the drop down menu which asks for the
reason for the return then click the next/continue button, then when on the
next page you can shut down NVDA and open jaws and continue from there on
in with jaws. Like I said its not a perfect solution, but it gets the job
done none the less. Hope this helps

I am using JAWS 18 and Windows 7. I am trying to return an item bought
through Amazon, and cannot seem to get past where it wants you to check the
box indicating the item I want to return. JAWS just keeps saying "Checkbox
not checked". Pressing the spacebar does not change what JAWS says.

I will probably end up calling Amazon accessibility, but was wondering if
anyone else has had luck returning an item recently. I tried both IE and
Chrome.
