Re: Adobe Flash Player with NVDA

I recently Google the words: "embedded object flash NVDA Firefox" and found that there are very good descriptions of what the problem is. The NVDA work-around is to focus on the spot where NVDA reports "Embedded Object unavailable" and then NVDA+numpad divide followed by numpad divide by itself. You can either arrow down to the embedded bject (tab won't find it because it is really not visible on the screen) or you can use the quick key "o" to find the object. This works in Firefox, IE and Google Chrome.

All the best,

I have a similar problem with the BBC. I can use internet explorer or google Chrome without any problem. Usin Firefox, what I do as a work around is go to the link, turn off NVDA, click on the link, and when it starts playing, I turn NVDA back on. Noone seems to know what the problem is with NVDA Firefox and Adobe flash.

Hello everyone,

Adobe Flash Player is preventing me from tuning in to the local news
online on such sites as:



I had contacted these TV stations to report the technical
difficulties, and both Webmasters had told me that their live streams
were working properly.

Just a recap: My laptop's operating system is Windows 10, my Web
browser is Firefox, and of course I use NVDA as my screen-reader.

So my questions are these:
1. How user-friendly is Adobe Flash Player with NVDA?
2. What could be causing Adobe Flash Player to play live Webcasts on
some sites but not on others?
3. Is there a way for me to troubleshoot Adobe Flash Player without
uninstalling and reinstalling it?

Thanks so much for your folks' help, and have a good day.
