It seems already managed by Gwen, who has access to the Bug Reports:
@Gwen-Dragon said in Vivaldi Browser Screen Reader Accessibility:
@Minionslayer I tried to ping a developer and updated two bug tracker entries.
Those are 3rd Party Platforms.
Not sure whether are PlugIns to support it or not implemented.
Maybe V Team Members knows about.
Forum and WebMail
There you may find support if not implemented at all.
Yeah, it seems like a bug in the dark theme, or at least a lack of optimization.
However, it has been like that for a very long time... And I remember having already reported it more than a year ago, because it had been already a very long time before that issue was present 😛 --> VB-45000
In general, I know that Vivaldi has a tremendous number of tickets to deal with, and that they can't make immediately happy everybody.
But I must admit that it's kind of a shame that such small issues (one value to change in the CSS code) can not be treated more quickly. Difficult to be a small team with impacts on so many users! ^^
Speaking about dark theme and "quick win", an other simple CSS value update could also make the background of the panel icons transparent. Having a light grey square on every webpanel icons in the dark theme is quite inelegant. Same thing, sadly also reported long time ago.
This is particularly annoying when I'm trying to practice reading Japanese. The fonts for languages that have very intricate characters are not great, but if I can force my font of choice then I can be sure to be able to read it.
You don't need to know what it says, but here is an example of the BBC using their own choice of font:
See the jagged edges on the first character? Compare this with when I force it to use my own choice of font:
It's so much less ragged and ugly, and is vastly easier to read, and the font size didn't need to be increased to achieve this - just a change in font. This isn't so much an issue for simple characters, but for the more complex kanji characters it really makes a difference.
Some users might argue this is the fault of chrome's poor font rendering, but when we have an easy solution available to us (default fonts) it would be stupid to not make use of it.
I've realised there is a workaround for the only two functions I need that are not working in Vivaldi. That is, open new tab and close tab. If I use the commands, press Control T and press Control W this achieves the same actions.
@LonM said in Caret Browsing:
There are extensions that introduce some support for chrome based browsers.
In all Chromium browsers I've used before as well as in Chrome itself — that has been a built-in default feature triggered on [F7] just as with any browser.
Which makes me pretty sure Vivaldi developers just overridden that functionality for some reason.
