I have come across this with links when I
am reading the MIT articles. Edge, Chrome and Firefox will
just say link but IE says the name of the link... Funny the
oldist "outdated browser is the only one working correctly.
So it is not that they arent labled correctly... Not sure
why this happens but it is strange.

Thanks for the reply. I have seen that
kind of behaviour before with links in chrome, but for these
links , even if I move up or down from the link the link
name is still not being spoken by Jaws for some reason. I’ve
even tried CTRL and f to bring up the search, but even the
search function can’t seem to find the link names , it’s
like they just aren’t showing for some strange reason in
chrome and Firefox.
Sometimes I find in Chrome, it will say
the word Link, then underneath will be the name of the link
when you down arrow. Is it doing that? Like this:-
On separate lines in the browse buffer.
You see this too on the Wordpress
Dashboard, if you go into any option like Updates, then look
for the dashboard link, it is not spoken.
I believe this to be a Chrome problem.
All the best
I’m building a word press site. The theme
I’m using seems nice and accessible and is working well with
screen readers, but I’ve come across 4 links which aren’t
being read out by jaws in chrome and Firefox and jaws just
says link, but yet if I use IE the links are read out fine
by Jaws and will for example say ‘link favorites’. I’ve
tried with NVDA too and get the same issue. I’m hoping to
reach out to the developer/author of the word press theme
and see if they can make any adjustments so Jaws will read
out what these four links actually are , rather than just
saying link, but I wanted to go back to him with a solution
as to how to possibly fix the link, so does anyone know the
technical reason links wouldn’t read their names in chrome
and Firefox but yet would work fine in internet explorer?
Many thanks in advance for any help
