More Echos About Echo

Well, it looks like Echo is coming around. We’re even getting Mac users saying they can use it. It seems like the source of the problem is labeling of fields…I think.

One thing I thought I’d mention is sometimes, while the page is loading, it looks like all the comments have gone bye-bye. Try refreshing your screen. The JAWS’s keystroke for that is insert escape. I don’t know how to do it in Window Eyes, Supernova, Voiceover or all the other ones. But the function is to redraw or repaint the screen. When you do that, all the comment links show up. I don’t know why, but it seems to take a second for everything to load.

I really hope we can make everyone happy, and Echo can learn a little bit about accessibility, and see that there are real reasons to try and follow all those pesky standards like WCAG and stuff.
