Re: Force Focus Mode?

Larry Silvermintz <silvermintz@...>

I’m partially-sighted as are many people, so I am using NVDA with ZoomText.  and only in focus-mode can you use vital Accessibility features of Firefox, such as  “Search for text when you start typing”.  Also, the text highlighting doesn’t work correctly when not in focus mode.

It would be most valuable to have an add-on to force focus mode if NVDA really can’t currently do it.

What are the possibilities?

 Hi Larry,


As Simone said, there isn't currently a way to do this.  Perhaps a good question to follow up with is, why do you want to?  Either there might be another way to accomplish what you need, or, of course if there is a good reason to do this, it could be something to consider adding.


Kind regards

How can NVDA be set to always use Focus-mode in Firefox?
