Webvisum works in the latest firefox, you need to change some things on about:config... I don't have the values now, but someone posted the instructions on this (or in freelist) list,.

You know, I had that same problem. Ramola solved captschas I never wanted to be solved and took my money. Thanks for reminding of that. I knew there was some reason why I do not like Ramola! I do not want to keep disconnecting it and connecting it all the time either. Is there any other captscha solving service? Wev vism does not work anymore in the later versions of Firefox. Take care.

yes, that's true, what you say.
but on the other hand, when i browse to a site, where is a capcha available,
the capcha wil be processed byy rumola, even if you don't need it at that
i think that is a problem, if i don't can disable it until i need it.
or is that possible?

You have to use Ramola captscha add on. You pay 95 cents to solve 150 captschas and so on. Have a great one.

I am very happy to say that my issues at least have been addressed, and that browsing with Chrome and NVDA is the best it has ever been.

Hi Nimer

Just a few questions:

Can I establish if you are using Chrome or Canary?

What is ChromeVox?
Chromevox is Google's screen reading option that a user can
enable while using Chrome or Chrome OS.

What is the status of the ‘automatically run say all on page
load’ in the NVDA Browse mode dialog?

What is the status of the ‘automatic focus mode for focus
changes’ in the NVDA Browse mode dialog?

What is the status of the ‘automatic focus mode for caret
movement’ in the NVDA Browse mode dialog?

I have Chrome and Canary and don’t get the same as you re
pressing tab to see the content in either version of the browser

The quick navigation keys operate when you are in browse mode
and I’ve not had trouble with them in standard web pages with
eiter browser but there is a problem with them in the settings
page of Chrome but they seem to work OK in the Canary settings page.

The chrome menu reads perfectly in chrome but there are a couple
of gaps in the Canary version after Zoom and Edit entries.

Performance degradation in current Firefox

Unfortunately, Chrome accessibility has a bit of a ways to go. I
wish it didn't. I wish I could reliably use Chrome without the
strangeness that persists, but I can't. With Canary, some menu
items are not read out by NVDA, but are by Chromevox. Others are
read out by NVDA and not by Chromevox. I don't want two screen
reading packages running. When navigating the web and going to a
new web page, I seem to have to push tab after a new page loads,
otherwise NVDA doesn't seem to see the content on the page. When
doing a search on the Google page and when navigating around
Chrome in general, pressing H to navigate by heading only works
sometimes, but sometimes locks up until I again press tab to
force it to get back to the content. The sign-in process in
Chrome does not work with NVDA. I needed to use Window-eyes to
get it to read the content. JAWS was also unable to read it. And
I will post another thread about this, but Hangouts doesn't work
very well. the Hangouts app seems to be totally inaccessible to
next branches of NVDA and Canary. And the keyboard shortcuts
that Google outlines in their manual at don't
work when navigating to
<>, and the article doesn't specify
where exactly these shortcuts are supposed to work. Actually
many hotkeys that Google outlines interfere with
browser-specific hotkeys. So I would be happy to transition to
using Chrome, as Firefox is becoming awful, but that would mean
a huge loss of productivity for me. So if you have been able to
get Chrome to work more reliably, I am interested in which
version of Chrome and which version of NVDA, as well as any
settings changes that you have made for your specific set-up. If
this is localized to just me, I am willing to do some
troubleshooting, but on three computers Chrome's behavior seems
to be the same. About the only improvement I have seen to Chrome
Canary is that NVDA reads out a few additional menu items that
it wasn't reading before. I might try resetting Chrome back to
default settings and removing all plugins to see if that has any
effect, but this installation of Chrome is pretty new, so I'm
not sure if that will help or not.

I've in firefox 45.0.1 and all is working fine.

I see no problem with NVDA. I recommend you go onto
google and search for about:config that can help
improve firefox performace and that pretty helps.
