Re: Staying in Forms for Checkboxes
Can you have it manually switch between browse and focus modes
without it automatically opening a combo box when you come to one?
having it do so in a combo box is why I don't have it manually
switch between the two. System Access, the screen reader I
previously used, would automatically allow you to start typing in
an edit box, but when you got to a combo box or a drop-down menu,
you had to hit alt+d I believe. I don't recall now if that
keystroke opened combo boxes or just drop-down menus, but anyway,
when I started using NVDA, I had it set to automatically switch,
but then, one time, I was shopping and ran into a combo box. Not
realizing the thing had opened automatically, I nearly ended up
buying way, way more than I'd intended to by inadvertently
selecting a high number of whatever item it was I was trying to
purchase. I don't even remember now what the item was, but I
remember thinking, OK, I don't want this thing automatically
opening the combo box and confusing the heck out of me! So I'm
just wondering: Can you have it switch between browse and focus
modes, while not automatically opening combo boxes. I'd rather
open those myself. If not, I'll just keep it the way it is. It's
nothing, really, to hit alt space when I need to write something.
Only takes a second to do.
