Hi Claire,

Just below each tick box, the name of the article is a link.  If you press
enter on it, you should be able to edit it.

Just one more word of advice, if you have WordPress 5.2 or later, you might
want to install the Classic Editor plugin.  The new block editor is not
particularly accessible yet, but they are working on it.  If you install the
Classic Editor plugin, you can then set it up so that users have the choice
to edit with the Block Editor, or the Classic Editor, this can be done in
the Classic Editor plugin settings.  You can also set the default editor on
a per user basis.

All the best

Subject: [BCAB] Editing a post on Wordpress

Hi all,
I am trying to use the Wordpress dashboard on my computer with the latest
version of Firefox and latest version of JAWS, when I go to my dashboard,
then find my post which is currently a draft, I am unable to see any options
for that post, such as edit, bin, etc, can see is a tickbox which I can
either check or uncheck but this makes no difference. Can someone please
tell me where I am going wrong?
