Re: Adobe Flash Player with NVDA

On the bbc sight I often find the flash object missing and several refreshes later nvda caan suddenly find it. I have no idea why this should be but it seems confined to Firefox not IE, however in IE you do not seem to be able to read the button and control names but it works.
I've had most luck with the betas of flash not the release one, as for shockwave. I always updat this when prompted, though to be honest I've no idea what the impact on flash is.

Do you have any chance to update or download Adobe Shockwave and install
it to your machine. Then, let us know if this will suffice your problem.

Yes, I do have the latest Adobe Flash Player installed because I had
just updated it a few days ago.

Here's another interesting thing: Whenever I go on Youtube, it plays
Youtube videos just fine!
Yet I don't understand why it won't play Webcasts on some sites but
not others--especially the 2 I had shared--and I'm missing out on my
local news and weather so much and have been for, well, almost a month
If a major earthquake was to hit the Alleutian Islands and generate a
big tsunami for the Hawaiian Islands, for instance, I'd be sorely

As far as time zones go, Hawaii is 3 hours behind Pacific Time:
California, Oregon, the state of Washington, etc., so I don't know if
Adobe Flash Player's weird behavior is caused by this or not.

Anyway, thanks so much for the responses!
