Using overlay dialogues on websites, is there a way to do it?

John Schucker
Hey all. Sorry if this is more a user question but I don't readily see a
way to deal with these, so in case I'm not just missing something, I
figured I'd bring it up here in hopes that it could be solved.


Sometimes in websites, e.g. Amazon, dialogues will pop up. For instance,
if you try to edit a shipping address or credit card, it doesn't bring
up a normal page with form fields, it brings up a dialogue. The only way
to access the fields, that I can tell, is to tab through them. The
problem is that they don't seem to be labeled. Buttons sometimes are,
but most of the time fields are just given as "edit". Naturally this
means you can't tell what information is supposed to go into a given
field. I know Amazon does it because I just tried to change some things
and was unable to do so. Some credit card sites use it as well. I should
add that this is in latest Firefox on Win 10, NVDA 2017.1.


I call it an overlay because sometimes NVDA will report "an overlay is
being displayed". Is there a way to use these  that I'm missing? I've
been running into it more and more lately. Luckily my wife's usually
around so I've got sighted help handy, but of course I'd like to be able
to deal with it myself. Hopefully there's an easy answer I'm just missing.

Hello,
You just need to toggle on browse mode with NVDA+space.

Cheers,

Yes its a bit fiddly though keeping track of which mode you should be in
when.
 I had no end of trouble adding a debit card to Amazon the other day as the
field was not obvious without kind of going to browse, andbacktracking to
see what was there eachtime. Tip take the phone off the hook while you
concentrate!
