Nothing to do with Prime -- I don't have it, either. Is your friend using the accessibility version of the Amazon site? I don't.

My friend had gone all down the Your Account Page, line by line, with the Amazon Disability person, and there was no Account Options. She'd also had JAWS, as did I last night, search for the word Options. JAWS said it was not there. This morning, after having read several List responses, I had JAWS search for the word Payment, And again, that was not there. My friend does not have Amazon Prime. Nor do I. There was a link for managing one's Prime Account, but this brought me no joy as a roundabout way of getting to Account or Payment Options Since I was told immediately that I did not have Amazon Prime. Here is what I see when I go to the Your Account Page: JAWS says there are 11 links. Your Account Amazon.com Your Account View Orders Choose Period: Open and recently shipped orders Continue Amazon Prime Manage Prime Membership Gift Cards Search Go Cart Your Account 1-Click Settings List & Registry Find a List or Registry Sign Out Help Home Legal Terms Several people said they could reach the Payment Options Link using IE11, JAWS 2010 and Windows 10. This is what my friend is using. But to test, this morning, I loaded IE11 and went back to Amazon. For me, it made no difference. I got the same page with the information copied above. I've gone to Amazon from the link on my desktop, as well as from a Google search, just in case that made a difference. It doesn't.. I wonder why some can access this and others of us cannot. Since email addresses change, and the expiration numbers on credit cards change every couple of years, or shipping addresses may change, we need access to the account information page. Admittedly it's got to be frustrating if results can differ, even when the operating system, browser and screen reader version are the same, but this is why I put this out on the JAWS Users' List to see if the problem my friend and I are having could be replicated. Thanks to those who responded, but if anyone is having similar issues, I'd like to know, and Amazon needs to be alerted so that they know how widespread the problem is.

I have the same experience as Dave. Note the obvious difference between "account options," which I couldn't find, and "payment options," which is on the "Your Account" page and which gives customers the ability to edit payment details. One other thought. Amazon recognizes my computer when I go to the website, even though it will ask me to enter my password in certain cases. Does Amazon recognize your friend's system? Or does she need to enter a username and password in order for the "Payment options" link to appear?

She went to the Amazon website, to: Your Account And there she was stopped because the link she needed was not on the page, or not that JAWS could find. The next step would have been to go to the link Account Options But that link was nowhere to be found on the page. She called the Amazon disability number and spoke with someone. She finally got the credit card information updated with their help, but as they saw, she, using a screen reader, did not have access to that vital link. Perhaps we, as screen reader users, are taken to another site, one supposedly more accessible? when the screen reader is detected, because the woman assured her that the Account Options Link was there for her, as a sighted user. The woman filled out a form for their accessibility team, but if we are currently unable to access information that was available to us before, as it certainly was, then this is an issue that needs to be addressed by Freedom Scientific working with Amazon. I'm posting this here to see if others too will be unable to get to the Account Options Link from the Your Account Page. If not, perhaps you too could call the problem to Amazon's attention. My friend and I are both using Windows 10, version 1709, with JAWS 2018 with the current March update. She's using Internet Explorer. I'm using the latest version of Chrome.
