I took a class through braille institute here in Los Angeles in the basic navigation points for the mac, as I have needed to use one while at a place I go to on Friday, and for the most part it has gone well. The agency I'm with wants us to take classes to improve our skills, and I've taken several using my Windows PC, and recently delved with this on the mac. The site in question is <a href="http://www.universalclass.com">Universal Class. </a>
On their site, most of the things I can do without any issue including taking exams by interacting with the frame, and more recently, I was able to open E-mail and reply. This is where I need clarification.
First, on the Windows PC side, the E-mails in the table come up as an onclick, so I press enter on it and the PC opens it up and I go back to the top of the page. On the mac, I have to hit command to open, forgive me for the mistakes, but i think it is ctrl+option+space. Then, I realized I need to interact with the E-mail frame within the browser whether chrome or safari.
The Mac says this is a text element, not an onclick.
Has anyone used this site and can they confirm whats happening? If they need access to my account, I'm willing to get on the phone with someone so I can give them my credentials.
I'm also having issues with word on these PC's,. These macs are word 2011, and the mac version is 10.8.4. I don't know anything else about it. Word will not read me anything on the screen, but yet at Braille, the word read fine and I did no interaction.
Next, back to Universal class, I am having issues reading within the edit boxes in the assignment fields. One instructor gave me a lower grade because I was having trouble, and I indicated that. He said it was fine and advised me to move on. I know not all is web, but I would prefer to type my assignments using Word, and upload using this site instead of using the edit box. I've found that I needed the assignment, at some points. Thanks for any assistance.
