No Gene, object navigation did not work. When I tried object navigation left and right, I got no objects. Bob’s instructions worked like a charm. Buthank you for trying, and thanks a bundle for showing me how to do object navigation.

 I can't test this because I don't have a page to test it on, voice search with Google isn't available in Firefox, but I expect what I described to work.  It is still something that may be of considerable benefit to know at least a small amount about object navigation unless you use programs that are all properly accessible and don't go beyond them.  You may come across programs where there is no other way to work with some aspects of the program.

I hope you will try what I suggested so that if such an occasion arises, you may be able to do what you want without delay and perhaps significant inconvenience.

Thanks a million Bob. This solved the problem when nothing else worked.

I truly appreciate it.

When you press F6, then shift tab until you hear a message about trackers. When you get to that message, press right arrow twice, and you should get to the manager sharing settings button. From there, press either space or enter, and you will see a block button and an allow 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.
