Re: Dropbox innaccessibility again


what about tiny spell.

It was what was recomended to me when I used jarte but I have never really used it as such.

What is a solution for a spell checker if one does not have Office installed?
I have office both at home and at work, and I rely on a spell checker to make sure I don’t send out misspelled words.
I recall the JawsLite list used to offer a spell checker utility that when installed, gave a spell checker for eMail clients.
I’m not sure if captcha is in the dictionary, but for other instances, it is a must.
I think that most Blind folks who lost their sight early on are bad spellers, since we listen to material more than we read it in Braille.
I know that my spelling is not as good as it was when I could read print.
But it is important for us to send messages without misspelled words.

It isn't a typo. It is the result of the chronic and widespread practice of a lot of blind people not checking spelling of unfamiliar words and relying on speech for the spelling. it doesn't matter what you explain or how. If you write to a business or web site administrator or whomever in a business capacity, and misspell the name of the thing you are writing about, you lose considerable credibility and do not look competent.

And how do you know that the thought doesn't arise in the recipient, "If the person is misspelling the name to this extent, maybe the person doesn't know how to use the captcha. If you want credibility in the sighted business and other professional worlds, spell correctly and use correct names. A typographical error is mistyping; This is misspelling. and this issue goes much further. If you don't check names to be sure the spelling is correct, for example of the person you are writing to, you might use a w at the end of a name when you should use o u g h. and in your specific case, someone might spell Brian with a y instead of with an I or visa versa. And the list goes on.

You are worrying about typos. We know what we mean. If I was writing to a
company I'd explain the actual issue without trying to use buzz words for

Sure, but if one is going to write a company to complain about their
use of quote captures unquote on their web site, they're either going
to think you're nuts or won't know what you're talking about. It's a
good idea to call something what it is or one won't get very far. It's
like going to a deli and asking for a cam shaft sandwich when one
should have said Corned Beef Hash instead. the two phrases are
different things just as capture and captcha are two totally different

I don't think so, is there no audio version?
The problem is everyone these days is security paranoid. I did not

about the capchar, but I have just sent them an email about the
dialogues and messages.
I also have a big list of some of the problems on the dev list but no
has commented. I shall turn it into a ticket if i get time this

However if its not possible to tweak nvda to get these things to read,
withstanding the cap char then i feel that somebody in NVDA a

really needs to have a word with them as they talk the same language. A
of it is written in python QT and C. It should be perfectly possible to
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

robot leave this field blank.

Also, it's now very difficult to accept an invite from another person
share a folder. You used to just get an email and it says who is

you to share and there are 2 buttons--one says accept and the other
decline. That was so easy! Now you are taken to a web page of some

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
with any other browser. Seems like dropbox wants us to just go away.

this dialogue no longer works with nvda either. it just is a blank
saying its the shaere with another user item, but just like the
preferences and the delete from all machines and devices one its
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.
