Re: Dropbox innaccessibility again

I don't think so, is there no audio version?
The problem is everyone these days is security paranoid. I did not know about the capchar, but I have just sent them an email about the inaccessible dialogues and messages.
I also have a big list of some of the problems on the dev list but no dev has commented. I shall turn it into a ticket if i get time this weekend. However if its not possible to tweak nvda to get these things to read, not withstanding the cap char then i feel that somebody in NVDA a programmer really needs to have a word with them as they talk the same language. A lot of it is written in python QT and C. It should be perfectly possible to fix the dialogues as they made them work before.
As for the Capchar, Google is gradually removing those in favour of a question based system like.
If the sky is cloudy is it blue.
To which the answer is no of course.
I particularly like the one that says in the edit field, if you are not a robot leave this field blank.

Subject: Re: [nvda] Dropbox innaccessibility again

Also, it's now very difficult to accept an invite from another person to share a folder. You used to just get an email and it says who is asking you to share and there are 2 buttons--one says accept and the other says decline. That was so easy! Now you are taken to a web page of some kind and it asks you to solve a captcha and this can no longer be done as Webvisum is finished for Firefox, and I know of nothing like it that works with any other browser. Seems like dropbox wants us to just go away.

I wanted to share a folder today, but it seems on the current version this dialogue no longer works with nvda either. it just is a blank page saying its the shaere with another user item, but just like the preferences and the delete from all machines and devices one its totally empty of any controls that read at all.

Anyone care to comment?
If its also happening in windows 10 maybe we can write en masse to Dropbox to get them to correct this.
