moderated Routers which have an interface which is accessible using JAWS


Dave Durber
 

Hello everyone:
 
I need to set up port forwarding for a particular purpose. My ISP provider, is EE. The router's interface is mostly accessible. I was able to choose the device from the list, enter the start and end port forwarding addresses but, I could not find the button to press, which saves the new settings. I called EE and explained my problem. EE sent a technician to my home to try and help me set up the port forwarding function, which is when we discovered there were a couple of buttons on the port forwarding page which had been designed as graphics, which of course,no screen reader cannot speak.
 
Now, I am looking for a router, which has an interface, which is accessible using JAWS. Until 2014, when Annie and I moved to the UK, we always had Lynksys routers. Are the modern day Lynksys routers fully accessible using JAWS, if not, can any list members recommend a router, which is accessible, using JAWS.
 
Any suggestions, must contain both make and model numbers.
 
Thank you in anticipation for any and all suggestions.

Hi Dave,
I use a Linksys Smart router, but I don't use any Linksys software, I use the web interface, and I find that Internet Explorer works better than the three main browsers for router interface.

Hi David try netgear they’re accessible. Also you might want to take a look at linksys. There pretty good.

Also, just as a note, you can label graphics so that screen readers
speak whatever text you assign and then even graphics buttons are
usable. The trick here is making sure you get the labels right.

Hello Dave, I’ve had good luck on accessibility from Netgear routers not so much with Linksys anymore.

On this point, I would add that unless someone has just gotten a router, then our suggestions may not be very useful.
My Linksys smart router is possibly 5 years old, and you can't likely get that model any more.
I don't think any router manufacturer pays any attention to accessibility, I think that if one model happens to be accessible, it is a fluke.

Agreed with this, hardware of this type changes on an extremely rapid
basis. (Mostly, I suspect, so that they can always put "newer and
better" on the box).

Do the graphic buttons show up in JAWS as graphics? If so you could use the graphics labeler in JAWS to give them labels. You would need sighted help to do this but once it is done, you wouldn't need the help again.

I use Charter/Spectrum for my cable TV and internet and they use a router that I find quite accessible. At least I've been able to do everything I needed to do with it. It announces itself as a Sagemcom F@st5260 router.

Because the buttons which are used in the EE Router's web interface are designed using foreground and background pixels, JAWS will not know they are there at all. In other words, these buttons, are not unlabeled graphics of the type JAWS recognize and tell me there is an unlabeled graphic.

Hello Dave,

 

The most accessible routers I have found are from MikroTik using the command line to access their RouterOS UI but it is a steep learning curving as it isn’t intuitive.

 

The Netgear range is accessible through the GUI in the browser. I am currently managing two Orbi Pro Mini’s, one with and one without the satellites.

Hello Dave,

 

You can connect to RouterOS via the API, FTP, SSH, Telnet, WinBox, or WebFig. I SSH in which is accessible. I can’t speak for the other methods. I could try WinBox and WebFig later this week to see if they are accessible or not.

The only problem with using a discontinued router would be the lack of security updates.

Not necessarily, my first router from years ago continued to get firmware updates for quite a while after they stopped selling it. I forgot which brand it was.

Hi Dave,
I use a Linksys Smart router, but I don't use any Linksys software,
I use the web interface, and I find that Internet Explorer works
better than the three main browsers for router interface.

JAWS

Hello everyone:
I need to set up port forwarding for a particular purpose. My ISP
provider, is EE. The router's interface is mostly accessible. I was
able to choose the device from the list, enter the start and end
port forwarding addresses but, I could not find the button to press,
which saves the new settings. I called EE and explained my problem.
EE sent a technician to my home to try and help me set up the port
forwarding function, which is when we discovered there were a couple
of buttons on the port forwarding page which had been designed as
graphics, which of course,no screen reader cannot speak.
Now, I am looking for a router, which has an interface, which is
accessible using JAWS. Until 2014, when Annie and I moved to the UK,
we always had Lynksys routers. Are the modern day Lynksys routers
fully accessible using JAWS, if not, can any list members
recommend a router, which is accessible, using JAWS.
Any suggestions, must contain both make and model numbers.
Thank you in anticipation for any and all suggestions.

Winbox for the Mikrotik is not very accessible, I tried it a few
times, but no joy.

Not necessarily, my first router from years ago continued to get
firmware updates for quite a while after they stopped selling
it. I forgot which brand it was.

The only problem with using a discontinued router would be the lack of security updates.

Even if the router isn't being sold any more, I'll bet you can find one on eBay.

Hi Dave,

We have that same issue with the router that came with Spectrum. The tech who came out suggested the Asus router that they list will work on their website with their equipment. You might want to find out which routers work with their equipment and then find out which one is accessible.

Do you happen to know if the router you have is still available? If it is, what is the model number?
