Hi all. I ran into a stubborn control on a web page. I'll describe it here in the hopes that someone might have an accessible strategy.
The control lists several fiction genres. Sighted users can select multiple genre items by Command-clicking them.
I can easily select one genre item using my up and down arrow keys. The item I arrow to becomes the selected item. Also, I can select multiple contiguous items with Command+up or down, but I want a non-contiguous selection.
VoiceOver's multiple selection doesn't seem to work with this control. If I begin multiple selection with VO+Command+Enter, then try to arrow down to another item, the previously selected item immediately becomes unselected.
Very frustrating. Any suggestions?
If you want to try this item yourself, you will need to create an account at https://thegrinder.diabolicalplots.com and edit your account's genre preferences.
