Because I was testing the accessibility of the site, so I use multiple passes with a couple of versions of JAWS to cover 4.1 of WCAG.

Sorry for asking this as you may have some good reason, but why still use Jaws 2020 especially if the issue is not present in Jaws 2021?

Hi Ed,

 

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately it is already turned off. Also a clarification, I mentioned 2021, and it is not happening in that version, just 2020.

Hi Joe,

You need to turn off smart navigation mode.

Go into Settings Center with JAWS key+6.

Press shift+control+d to load the default settings.

In the search box, type "smart" and press tab to get to the search results.

Locate smart navigation mode and turn it off by pressing space.

Ok your way out of the dialog.

Cheers,

Ed

Hi everyone,

 

I have recently started to encounter multiple situations, where I have multiple web elements being read by JAWS on one line, when I am navigating a site. I know this can be an issue in NVDA if you do not uncheck the check box for “Use Screen Layout”, as NVDA will read the inline content on one line. Is there something I can change in JAWS or is this a site issue? I am running the latest Win 10 and this is happening with the most up to date versions of Firefox and Chrome with the most up to date version of JAWS 2021 and 2020.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Joe
