moderated : Re: Using Slack

Hi, I find it frustrating when using the CTRL+T or K for example. Slack used to just list your thread and you could activate which ever one you wished. Now you get one item then if you keep arrowing down expecting another thread, you the “didn’t find what you expected” message and you then get told you have to type in specific search terms to find your thread.

What if I don’t know what the thread is? Also, I find the UI in general very clunky to use and some of the keystrokes do not worked as advertised.

Note:  This is the Desktop Application.

Hi. Slack user here. Also JAWS user. What problems are you having with the app?

I’ve been forced to use Slack for two years and I HATE it. Is there really people that think that Slack is an accessible Application? Every time I think something works the next day it doesn’t.

I’d love to find people that use Slack with JAWS and find it a good experience.

Use it in the browser, you probably will have better luck.

Huh. Those aren’t necessarily things I’ve explicitly run into on this end. What version of JAWS are you using?
