Carriage returns read as 'Graphic' on JAWS
Nov 18, 2014
Hello. I've been trying to make an e-learning module accessible for people using screen readers. When I tested it with someone who uses JAWS, every carriage return was identified as a 'Graphic'. Has anyone encountered the same problem? I'd be grateful for any advice, as this double 'Graphic' between every paragraph became too distracting for the learner to continue.
The other issue was that the JAWS reader always went to the bottom of the page when the learner navigated to a new page, causing confusion. I was of the understanding that JAWS should read top left to bottom right by default.
