Since getting my first Mac last year, there has always been 2 bugs that's kind of frustrating while browsing the web in Safari with VO, and I have yet to find a solution to them. Of course there's more than these 2, but they have all been mentioned before, so I wont bother you with repeating it once more here... :)
The first is when opening a new website, the VO focus doesn't always automatically interact with the html-content. So I'll have to find the place where it says html-content and interact with it to get into the actual content of the website. Then again, if doing VO+Space on a link on that site, VO focus again jumps up to somewhere in the toolbar or bookmarks, so I again will have to interact with html-content. I've contacted email@example.com about this issue, but they couldn't find a solution, and stated that it worked fine on their Macs. They asked me to test if the issue still existed when I was logged into another Wifi Network, and indeed it was. Anyone else experiencing this, and if yes, have you found a fix for it? My guess is that this happens when the website doesn't fully load. Because when I hear the VO sound that tells me that the site has fully loaded, the VO focus usually is correctly placed at the upper left corner of the html-content. But sometimes, that sound will never come, and that's when I'll have to interact with the html-content.
The second thing, is when starting to browse a new website with right and left arrows, with QuickNav turned on. VO then often just reads a bunch of gibberish, like "Resultdetails", "long non-sence-numbers" and weird links. But if hitting the tab-key a few times or VO+right, then everythings back to normal again, and the content is read as you'd expect. I find this more often happens when opening a link from the results page of a google search, but it happens other places too. I wouldn't be surprised if this also happens when the page stops loading. Sighted friends has also confirmed that websites often stops loading at aproximately 90 %, and I'm not sure why this happens. Seems like a reboot of the Mac fixes this for a while, but only for a while, and it's back to haunt me and give me interacting headaches again... Hehe... :)
Sorry for a too long post as usual! Lol :)
Just currious if others are seeing the same issues as me, and if someone has found a way around it... Afraid the "page-stops-loading" thing could be a symptom of some other errors that I haven't found yet, but it's still weird that VO won't interact with the website, even though all content seems to be there when interacting...
Well, I'll stop now! Haha...
Thanks in advance for your always so helpfull feedback!
You guys are awesome! ;)
