hi.

Just thought I'd pop in really quickly to say hi, and how thrilled I am to see this community.
I'm a relative newby to DW, even though I've had my account here for ages (i'm lazy and don't update my journals enough).
Anyway, I love it here so far, with only a couple minor questions, one of which has nothing to do with DW specifically but I didn't know where else to post it, sooo.
First, I'm using both jaws and NVDA, and they both work really well.
Next, thank you for setting things up so that icon keywords or descriptions get read, I really appreciate it.
Now, for my questions.
1. Is there any way to take the news community off the top of my homePage? If not that's ok, it's not a huge deal, I just wondered.
2. Now, for the question that has nothing to do with DW. Does anyone know how to remove an account from the list of choices when you log into Semagic? I was setting something up the other day and made a mistake, but cannot find any way of deleting the screwed up account.
Sorry that last one's kinda OT, but I couldn't find anywhere else to post it.
Anyway, thanks for any help anyone can give, and I look forward to using DW.

There isn't a way to customize the homepage at the moment! but we have a bug open for it.

Your reading page is at http://clefurgey.dreamwidth.org/read -- we don't use 'friends', because we changed the whole concept. Your journal's at http://clefurgey.dreamwidth.org/ .

It took me a while to get used to the fact that DW user questions are answered not just politely and personally but also QUICKLY. It's like they enjoy working here! ;-)

I think it's more a sign that we have no lives. *G*

Hi! We wanted to welcome you to the community!

DW is amazing.

And sadly, I'm really not sure of any way to take any accounts off Semagic and I don't think the news comm is removable.

But if you don't mind, I'd like to ask you a question, from one NVDA user to another.

Is there any way to use Semagic with NVDA, or are you forced to use JAWS with Semagic? Was just curious, as we didn't have any luck with that ourselves and thought if you did, we'd ask.

But yes. WElcome to the community. DW is about the most accessible journalling site we personally know of and we're glad you enjoy it here.
