Quote from: musicalman on August 05, 2017, 14:39:01I'm of the opinion that Jaws support is a lot of extra trouble since it doesn't respond as well to MSAA, though it does to some extent.
Quote from: musicalman on August 05, 2017, 14:39:01One thing not yet mentioned: the sample mapping dialog is really difficult with a screen reader. I've sort of figured it out but it isn't possible to do things with the keyboard directly, so I have to use the mouse simulation functions of my screen reader to click on things.
Quote from: musicalman on August 05, 2017, 14:39:01Last but not least... maybe this'll help devs of Famitracker and other trackers which have extensive keyboard navigation already to implement screen reader support?
Quote from: sethmhur on August 07, 2017, 03:22:41How do I send a om focus update?
Quote from: Diamond on August 07, 2017, 14:14:54Despite any issues JAWS may have with MSAA which I cannot personally verify, it is still likely the most widely used screen reader so support for it should not be casually dismissed.
Quote from: musicalman on August 07, 2017, 17:36:27*sigh* I dont' want to turn this into a screen reader debate. But I really do have to stand my point.
Quote from: Diamond on August 07, 2017, 13:46:43Indeed that would definitely be useful. I'll contribute as time allows. I've been a bit under the weather and I may have to return to the hospital for a possibly recurring blood infection.
Quote from: Diamond on August 07, 2017, 17:54:40Although I don't believe JAWS not updating it's buffer in the "Patterns" tab is any kind of example of deficiency on behalf of JAWS considering that it is far from a control designed for accessibility.
Quote from: Saga Musix on August 07, 2017, 23:12:20I'm not sure if you both talk about the same thing - musicalman mentioned the sample mapping dialog, which is separate from the sample map the instrument view.
Quote from: Saga Musix on August 07, 2017, 23:12:20I cannot be sure about this but it does sound like a bug to me (or rather overzealous optimization) that Jaws caches the old text, so it might be worth reporting a bug to the developers.
