Re: Creating surveys with Survey monkey as a screen reader user, and in a foreign language

Hey all.

Yes Jenifer, I agree. I know we have a lot of "which is the best
survey platform" type discussions, and I did not mean this to turn
into another one.
MOre specifically, my problem, after trying for a bit, is this. When I
enter questions in the question field, they do not show up in the
preview survey (nor the finalized link). The answers show up (I choose
radiobutton tyupe answers and type in the answer choices, those show
up without a hitch).
The question text does not even show up if I choose "edit question"
after the fact, and add it back in. I am a bit stumped, and I will
read manuals, contact customer support, and try to figure this out,
that is unless some of you already know the answer to this, feel free
to email me off-list if you think this inappropriate (though I think
more people might benefit from a how-to on this).
