New profile page not disability friendly
edited March 15 in Family Tree
I have trouble switching from mouse to keyboard and try to do most things by keyboard with as few keystrokes as possible. On the new profile page the Tab and Ctrl keys operate differently from the old profile page and require some extra keystrokes and mouse clicks.
- Ctrl + mouse click on a "Research Help" link doesn't work like the old profile page. On the old page this would go directly to the "Review and attach" page, but on the new page it operates as though the Ctrl key wasn't used and pops up the "Record information" window which requires another mouse click to get to the attach record screen.
- When entering a date and place, after using the down arrow to highlight the standardized date or place, the Tab key does not select the highlighted standard like the old page did. The old page Tab would select the highlighted standard and move to the next text box. The new page requires the Enter key and then a Tab to go to the next field.
- When entering the date and place and Tabbing through the Text entry boxes, an extra step is required on the new profile page to get past the "What's this?" link.
- When entering a Life Sketch, the window on the new profile page is so small
These extra key strokes and mouse steps might seem insignificant to some but are very cumbersome when every key is a struggle.
