Re: help with firefox and NVDA

No, I do not know the object navigation command in such a situation.  I tried tab and shift tab and it did not help.

 If tabbing or shift tabbing once or twice doesn't place you on the button, do you know how to use object navigation?  Be on the address bar and move by object to the left and right to see if you find the button.

Hello folks,

I am trying to use the whatsapp web using the latest version of firefox on a laptop running windows 10, last update. NVDA is my only screen reader. I am using NVDA 2021.3.

When I try to send a voice message on whatsapp web using fire fox, I get this message:

"Allow microphone
To record Voice Messages, WhatsApp needs access to your computer’s microphone. Click  in the URL bar and set “Use the Microphone” to “Allow.”

When I hit f6 to go to the URL bar I only find the whatsapp web address, but no buttons to adjust the setttings for my microphone there. What is the NVDA command to reach to this area when I get such a message on firefox?

I hope those who use firefox and NVDA can help me with this one.
