[resolved] How can I rearrange custom menu items when I'm a blind user of wordpress 3.3? (12 posts)

    Hello there. I have a sight up at http://wics.marrie.org, but it will be taken down soon until the first of next year as it is not supposed to be released yet.

    Anyway I have a custom menu I created and I added an external link. It appears at the bottom of the whole menu. I tried dragging and dropping but I am a blind user and voice over, which comes with the mac starting in os 10.4, said the item in question, that is the custom link was not draggable. Is there another way I can arrange these so I don't have to recreate the menu every time I want to add a custom link? Is there a patch being worked on wherein I can reorder via a pop up button maybe when I click edit menu item?

    thanks.

    P.s. The link in question is the make a request link. I want that to be at the top after the listen link.

    Thanks and happy holidays.

    Have you tried using another screen reader?

    Voice over is the only thing that will support drag and drop successfully and currently I don't have anything else to try this on.

    There is no way for me to move the request link to where I want it. I really wish thither were a fix or a work around besides rebuilding the menu every single time I wanted to add something.

    I've tried looking in header.php but that didn't work. I did not see the code wherein I would edit to move the link.

    Can a screen reader layout be added to the screen options much like the widget area in prior versions of word press? Maybe? Does anyone else have solutions? I want to use the custom menus with out editing code as I really don't have the time to do that.

    Thanks.

    Unfortunately, there's no such thing as a generic screen reader layout as screen reader software varies so much. I'm at something of a loss to explain why the custom url item isn't draggable when the other items are. It's coded in exactly the same manner as the others..

    I am as well. I'm trying to drag the list 2 items, the edit menu and even the name but it just is not working. Can anyone on this forum using a mac running os 10.7 and use voice over well test this and maybe give the wordpress team some thoughts?

    I'm guessing under edit menu item link you could hit that and there could be a reorder pop up that says above x and below x for each item you want to move. I don't code so my idea might be nuts but there it is.

    Suggestion; try turning javascript off. You may find the no-js interface easier to deal with.

    Thanks. I did that and the interface is a bit clunky but it works. Maybe an easier method could be done for those of us who are newbies at the browsers we use lol! I'll keep you all updated and see if that works or is counter productive.

    @esmi - Re your suggestion to join the discussion at http://make.wordpress.org/accessibility/, please can I ask how we can do that since I can find no way of adding a new post to that forum? I've tried in both Chrome and Firefox.

    You'll perhaps recognise my login as having replied to a few posts at make.wordpress.org/accessibility (as I know you have) but since Jane curtailed comments on anything older than 14 days I appear to be unable to contribute further there at the moment.

    I am keen to help make WordPress more accessible and have contributed some ideas at the Core Dev Team Meetup Q&A page. But I feel that the dialogue is a bit fragmented at the moment.

    If you could help I'd be most grateful.

    Graham

    I am also having trouble posting to the blog article sight you mentioned. I'd love to give my view points on accessibility of wordpress 3.3 but cannot as hitting reply does nothing, not even show up an edit field where I can type a response.

    Take care. And be blessed.

    And thanks to who ever for the tip about the java script. It works until they can fix the accessibility of wordpress.
