Since I got my new computer, I am finding that websites are not being
displayed as they were before. I am using Window-Eyes 7.5 with Windows 7
Home Premium. For example:
I logged into my Bank site, and the first page seemed ok. Pressing H once
got me to the list of my accounts. When I wanted to see my recent
transactions I pressed enter on my Bank account. Normally I would just then
press H once to get to them, but now when I pressed H I got to a level 4
heading which was the start of a long screed about all their products.
Pressing H didn't get me to my transactions. I ended up reding the whole
page, and eventually found them quite near the bottom of the page. There
was no heading at the start of them.
Another site I went to was the RNIB book site which is the one for the
streaming service. I logged on, and normally I could get to the welcome
Wendy section by pressing H once, after which I could choose links to look
at my bookshelf, search for books, etc. Now the page seems to be lacking in
headings for this, and again I had to read through the page to get to where
I wanted. When I had put a book on my bookshelf I should have been able to
press H once to get to the confirmation that it had been added, but not now.
I should have said that my new computer has Internet Explorer 9, and I
wonder whether this is making a difference. Everything seems to have gone
Another thing I would like to know is how to get rid of this irritating Bing
search provider. Every time I open IE and enter a web address it says I am
searching using Bing, which I don't want. My sighted helper, who is a real
expert, has made several attempts to disable this add on, but it keeps
All help and advice would be much appreciated.
