Room Reservation: Timeline issue with JAWS screen reader

Service Area(s): Library Services

Wednesday, August 16, 2023 3:50pm (ongoing)

The following problem has been detected with the JAWS screen reader, version 2023.2307.37.400 and JAWS version 2024.2312.53.400.  It does not appear in JAWS 2406.121.

It does not appear with VoiceOver or NVDA. 

When navigating the room reservation table using table navigation in JAWS, in some situations, the JAWS Virtual PC cursor is bumped to the adjacent room column. 

For example, If you are in the column for room 607 and step down you will hear the time slot for that room. However, if the adjacent room 605 room has a reservation at the same time, then the screen reader cursor will automatically be bumped from room 607 to the column for room 705. 

This does not happen when navigating the table with the down key.

Titles in Omni search results may be difficult to understand with some screen readers

Service Area(s): Access to Online Resources

Friday, December 9, 2022 9:18am (ongoing)

For JAWS and NVDA screen readers, the search results in Omni may inject extra words (e.g., mark, end mark) around search keywords matched in the title.  This can make it difficult to evaluate the title.  We have notified the vendor.
