Hello, I would like to report another serious accessibility bug where I'm not
sure about it's origins.
When javaws starts, and displays the about window or any other application, or
some error messages like the application is unlaunchable, orca keys don't work.
Some things are spoken when tabbing around, but I must wait for orca to end
speaking to be able to hear another control, if I'll tab through two controls
quickly I will hear their name spoken in order, In other words:
It's impossible to silence a screenreader, to use any of it's keys like
checking a date, to navigate read only text fields that sometimes show up when
I press the details button, the contents of any lines are not spoken when I
arrow through it...
I am not sure what is this, because sun's javaws does the same, just not after
application is started, this may also be an atk wrapper bug.
