Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Before I put this in as an accessibility feature request I want to make sure I'm not missing something. How do you up vote a comment? For questions and answers my screen reader reads vote up and vote down graphics but there's nothing like this for comments.

EDIT: I can't figure out how to get my screen reader to hover over a specific line of text then read what it finds, looks like this is an accessibility feature request. Opened accessibility request here.

just curious, WHEN A SCREEN READER ENCOUNTERS TEXT IN ALL CAPS, DOES IT YELL AT YOU? – Kip Sep 4 '09 at 4:58

The comment vote and flag controls are hidden to the left of each comment until you mouse over them, when you do there is an up-arrow icon with a tooltip which reads "this is a great comment."

Simply move your cursor over the comment and two small, faded, silhouetted symbols appear to the left of the comment: an arrow silhouette for up-voting and a flag silhouette for flagging the comment.

A comment that has received up-votes will display a number to the left, indicating how many. Currently, there is no way to tell how many of your comments have been up-voted, apart from returning to your each comment and viewing those numbers.

seeing your own comment vote totals is now possible through SEDE or other workarounds. Example: api.meta.stackoverflow.com/1.0/users/131713/… – Pops Sep 23 '10 at 17:52
