moderated Re: Links, Feature To Read Links Across Verses In a List
Let me go into more depth.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Tabindex is the attribute which effects tab order. If this is set to 0, then
the way in which the page is loaded into the browser is the tab order. If a
positive value is used which is a WCAG 2.1 failure. Then the focus order
will change. If a button is activated and this shows new content. Depending
on how the developer has developed the page. The content could appear at the
bottom of the virtual buffer (been inserted at the end of the dom) or
inserted after the button. So the next item Jaws sees is the new content
which is correct behaviour. The page should never use a positive value to
achieve tab order as it breaks things very quickly.
The difference between simple and document mode for Jaws is if the link and
other elements are presented on their own lines or not. The default document
view you will have links and other elements on different lines when using
the down arrow. In document view, the link will be a part of the paragraph
text. The tab order is still the same.
A lot of web sites use a tabindex -1 to change the tab order of items
depending on what you have done on the page.

I don't think any of these settings effect tab order, Jaws gives this to the
browser no matter what -- they only effect navigating by arrow keys. Jaws
does not interfere with what the browser does with tab.

right. Starting with the first link. This is of course assuming there is
nothing changing the tab order.
example. If you have a line of text with a link in it. Jaws will read the
whole line and announces the link as part of it. In simple layout, the first
part of the line is spoken, then the link, then the remaining part of the
Tab, you are going vertical on the page. This surprised me since I had been
pictureing tabbing as going horizontally across a page, like with the old
school typewriters. This comes from being pretty much self taught and
having a lot of questions like this and not having any real teaching about
computers or Jaws until I found the Jaws-Users group.
change the default Jaws navigation from vertical to horizontal when tabbing?
I don't have any sight at all so I can't tell.
