Summary

Tested RedShelf in Chrom v97.0 on 2 February 2022 Windows 11 NVDA 2021.2 I was using Chrome for the testing. RedShelf worked well. The shortcut key selection using ctrl + alt is in my view a poor choice. I believe many people use this key combination for launching applications. There is a really nice where am i function. There is plenty of information about page navigation. The issues with highlights and bookmarks really bring down the basic score, but otherwise, it is very nice experience.

Test results for Mathematics
Test ID Name Description Result Notes
mathml-010 Navigating block MathML with assistive technology and other technologies The test checks if block MathML works with assistive technology and related technologies. Pass I was able to enter the MathML with the NVDA Access8math function.
mathml-020 Navigating inline MathML with assistive technology and other technologies The test checks if inline MathML works with assistive technology and related technologies. Pass
math-image-030 Navigating Block Math images followed by Summary/Details with MathML The test checks if block MathML works with assistive technology and related technologies in a HTML Summary/Details as an option to get at the native MathML. Pass Once expanding the details, the MathML was available.
math-image-040 Navigating Inline Math images followed by commented out MathML This test shows an inline math expression as an image with only alt-text describing the math equation. This is not ideal but if a publisher can not use raw mathML directly this is an option for reprocessing in the future. Pass

Test ID Name Description Result Notes
extdescription-010 Detection and Utilization of HTML Details and Summary elements Check if you can use HTML details and summary successfully and read the extended description contained in it. Pass
extdescription-020 Technique for linking to a single extended description placed in a separate HTML file via text hyperlinks Check if activating the hyperlink placed under the image takes you to a separate HTML file with extended descriptions, and the back link there brings you back to the image. Pass Unlike the test in non-visual book, the back link here brings the NVDA focus to the correct location. Probably this is because the destination text is a paragraph of its own and not inline or because it is at the end of the document.
