Re: stopping DropBox from importing photos from removable media

Can you open the dropbox preferences from the tray and see it on there? It used to be in there, but now my machine will not read the text in the preferences log in or share dialogues, I cannot say for sure.
I seem to recall though, that its off by default as it used to keep asking me with a pop up about whether I wanted to use photo sharing and back up. Odd as I have no photos to share or back up!

Subject: [nvda] stopping DropBox from importing photos from removable media

Hi all,

I've recently installed DropBox onto a new laptop. On my other devices I've obviously managed to turn off importing photos but on this new laptop I need to make the required change in my account preferences.

First of all I searched the net for instructions on doing this but it said I should look for a chekcbox by the import photos or import photos and videos ... obviously the checkbox should be checked to allow importing and unchecked to disable it. I could find no such checkbox using NVDA.

SO I asked in the DropBox community and was told essentially the same advice ... use the checkbox.

Is there a reason I'm not finding the checkboxes with NVDA 2018.3.1 using browse mode or object navigation?

Any advice on turning this setting off would be very welcome!
