In my experience, the shortcuts don't all work and what if someone misses hearing it?

Yes but most announce, for me at least that they have keyboard shortcuts, so
I never have to actually go there.

When such announcements are announced, use control l to move to the address
bar.  That is near the part of the Firefox window where such announcements
are made.  I don't recall if you tab or shift tab to get to the controls
regarding the announcement but I think you shift tab one or more times.  You
may see an option and if you alt tab further, or perhaps its before the
option, I don't recall, you may see something like a button to open a menu
regarding the option.  This is a long unaddressed lack in Firefox
accessibility, that focus isn't moved to the announcement field and that
there is no short cut command in NVDA to move focus there.

Hello,


I'm having an issue with Firefox when it announces an alert. It will
anounce the alert and give me several options. But it won't announce any
shortcut keys to activate the options, nor have I found a way to see the
buttons in the alert. Any solution is appreciated.
