Re: Inaccessible dialog in a case where copying a file

Dan Miner

Interesting as I have hit that dialog too (as well for other issues) and I've been able to get the up and down arrows to work. It does take a bit of fiddling to get it to respond and I agree.. You have a good chance of missing the dialog popping up and I wish the Windows addon would address these file explorer dialogs.

You may disregard my last message.  The problem isn't an NVDA problem.  I just tested with JAWS and narrator and the same thing happens. The dialog evidently doesn't respond to keyboard commands.

I was mistaken in my memory of the behavior when I wrote that the dialog isn't announced when it comes up.  It is announced but tabbing and shift tabbing doesn't move me in the dialog.

I'm using the current production version of NVDA and the current version of Windows 10, 21H2.  If I copy a file to a folder where a version of it already exists, the dialog asking what I want to do is inaccessible in NVDA.

I can read it in screen review and with object review but the dialog is not announced when it comes up and when I tab, nothing is spoken.
