Re: Serious issue with NVDA not reading menus and totally silent in Firefox and Chrome
Hi Mallard,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
For both Firefox and Chrome, there is a checkbox under settings that says: "prevent accessibility services from accessing your browser." This should be unchecked. I thought it would be unchecked by default, but apparently, your friend's system had this item checked by default. This would in effect render Firefox and Chrome inaccessible and useless to screen readers.
The easiest way to undo this damage is to have sighted help. It's a simple matter of clicking tools, options, and unchecking this checkbox.
Lacking that, I believe there is something you can type at the command prompt from the edit box for search/addresses. You would have to do this all in the blind, so it wouldn't be easy. I will look for the proper things to type in the blind, but as of now, I seem to have misplaced the information.
Maybe someone else on list will have that information.
