moderated Re: Dialog of heading list: JAWS versus NVDA

Van Lant, Robin

I haven’t really looked for the heading level filters in the dialog, but that could be interesting.  I am not an NVDA user, so cannot speak to that tree view approach per se.  I could see how this could be preferable to some to get a feel for the structural layout, but I wouldn’t necessarily want to have to expand each heading.  Sometimes I find that page creators are using headings for visual effect and the headings they use may not really indicate structure as we would want. Sometimes I just want to see the full layout in a list to preview the entire content, which is where I would not want to have to expand each level to see this quickly.  So, I guess I’m content with the JAWS method, but would adapt to the NVDA approach if it were in use.

I think that NDVA's representation of the heading structures as a tree view reflects the nested structure of headings better than JAWS.  JAWS uses a tree view in the regions dialog.  Tree views also allow folding.  However, I just realized, that JAWS heading list dialog has access keys, like alt + 2 to filter just the heading levels 2 in the list box. That's kind of interesting. It makes it easy to just review a level of headings.  I can now see a case why the JAWS way is more user friendly.  Do others use the alt access keys in the heading list dialog to filter and I'm just late to the party?
