Here is a correction and another minor correction.
On the button that places me in the wrong field where I said that
returning to it and repeating the command many times changes the
state of the check box, that doesn't work. Do the following
When you are moved to the wrong field, tab back to the actual check
box. Use the numpad insert numpad plus command once on the check
box. You will hear check if it is unchecked. Then shift tab to the
button and use the double click command, NVDA insert NVDA enter
issued very quickly the same command you have been using. That
works, or it did the two times I tested it.
the minor correction is that at times, issuing what I'm calling the
double click command only once works with other check boxes.

more involved than it is. I hope it works for you. I did this
using my Windows 7 machine, Firefox and NVDA. You can see if it
works on your system with whatever browsers you want to try.
It appears I figured out how to get the check boxes to check and
uncheck, but I don't understand why this works and why another
thing doesn't work. Try the following:
Tab around and be on something you want to check. Turn off browse
mode. You will find a button and a check box, both for the same
thing. If you use keyboard commands, nothing will happen.
You will find that if you are on a check box, using the default
action command, numpad insert numpad enter, you will hear check if
the box is unchecked and uncheck if the box is checked. However,
if you then look at the state of the check box, you will find it
Instead, work with the button associated with the check box, which
is a shift tab back from the check box.
Use the same command, numpad insert, numpad enter.
Issue the command twice quickly, as though you were double
clicking a mouse. Check the check box by tabbing once to it.
This doesn't work the first time, at least not usually. Shift
back to the button and Issue the double click command again and
check. If that doesn't work, issue it a third time, going back
to the button to issue the command every time. This usually works
for me after the second or I think sometimes the third time I
issue the command.
As you tab, after you have checked whatever you want, you will
find a button that says cannot find a time. Press the space bar
on it and a dialog will come up to fill in your name and e-mail
address. Fill in both fields and tab to the appropriate button. I
don't recall what it says but use it to submit the form.
I noticed on one of the fields in this form that when I would
double click the button, it moved me to a completely different
field, moving me backward. but if I kept tabbing back to the
right button and double clicking it, after a number of times, the
check box was checked.
This is such a ramshackle way of doing things because of the odd
now it works and now it doesn't nature of what is occurring that
all I can say is these methods or about these methods work when I
try them on this form. You may find you need to experiment but
I'm not at all sure anything else works.
While this is hardly ideal, it seems to let you do what you want
in filling out such a form. I have no idea if you can create one

same, and I didn't want people to accidentally enter things on
an unrelated poll. However, here is the poll I was having a

Where is the example? I'm sure you meant to include an example
we could try, but it didn't show up.
