Thank you so much for this. I have now labeled the player buttons on the Moody Radio Player for listening live.



Love in Christ

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
Ephesians 6:12, 13

I have not seen a response to your inquiry.
If you are focused on a link or button, press insert+control+tab to rename
an element.



I hope this does what you want it to.

Ceigart:

Unfortunately, the link and the button I posted about, are on the site after
you have logged on with your user name and password.

Could you give the link to that site if it's not private?

Hello everyone:

The other day, I accessed a web site, which on the whole, was very
accessible.

Unfortunately, there were 2 problems. the first, was the link, which took
you to the shopping basket page. This link had no text label, to tell a user
of a screen reader the purpose of the link. The link is a standard HTML
coded link.

the second is a standard HTML button, which also does not have a text label.
This button is for removing an item from the shopping basket.

My question is, is there a way within JAWS, where you can attach labels to
specific links and buttons on an individual web site?

The link and button on this web site are not graphics

Thanks in anticipation.
