Try using the color attribute sound scheme. To get there press jaws key alt and s, like sam.

Arrow to color, or just press c. This should let you read the text, and when the color changes, it will tell you.


I hope this helps.

There is a way to search attributes for a particular background color, and if and when I find it again, I will let you know.

Subject: Identifying highlighted text on a web site



I received a  Email with a link to a policy from one of my suppliers.

When I entered  on the link, it opened in Chrome, which is my default browser.

Within this document, there are price lists and the Email states that the items that are either new or changed are highlighted in yellow.

I need to identify these items so I can compare them to our selling price.

I tried going through each line of the item lists and using JAWS key plus 5, but all said black on black.

Unfortunately I cannot provide the web site to you because the information is confidential.

Any ideas on how I may be able to identify these highlighted items?

Any assistance would be appreciated and thanks in advance.
