I'll give it a try, Cordelia.  Thanks for the tip.

I had similar problems with configuring Firefox earlier today. I ended up hitting the router button twice quickly, then I could use the space bar to activate an option. Might this work for you?

I don't know about the program itself, Brian, but the installer leaves a lot to be desired.

I chose the custom installation.  There is a series of checkboxes that select additional tasks to be performed.  NVDA reads them as unchecked and it reads them as unchecked no matter what I do.  Pressing spacebar or enter does nothing.  Routing the mouse to them and clicking does nothing.  I canceled the installation because I had no way of knowing the true state of the checkboxes.

            There was a major change to the look and feel of the interface, going to the now-all-the-rage flat look, which I hate, so I didn't go to it.  But they very well could have improved accessibility as part of that move.  It can be downloaded here:
You do not need the "Plus" version.  I just do not have the time (nor interest, to be honest) to play with this as far as determining its accessibility or the lack thereof.  I suspect if nothing else that the OCR function will remain the same even if the rest is completely inaccessible.
