Re: Orca Problems with Gaim and


  One possible issue you're having is that when you tab to the status
drop down menu, the menu is being dropped down and its stopping orca
from reading anything it has happened to me a few times. If you find
this, press escape a few times, then use flat review. I find that when
you tab to the status box and press tab again, nopthing happens until
you select something from the drop down then press space or enter then
tab again to the buddy list. Try running orca version 1.0 or higher with
gaim 2.0. I am running the latest updated version of Edgy and I couldn't
have seen a better operating system way to go Ubuntu!.

I am having a problem when using Gaim and Orca.  My main buddy list
window is always silent and the flat review keys don't work.  I am also
unable to hear anything when using the arrow keys in an attempt to
browse the buddy list.  The only time Orca says anything in the buddy
list window is when I tab off of the actual buddy list to the status
box or if I go into a menu.  I had posted a similar message on the
gnome-accessibility list and found that my problem may be unique to my
combination of versions of Gaim/Orca.  It seems to work fine in Ubuntu
Edgy.  I am running the latest GNOME packages from Debian experimental,
presumably 2.16 and have tried using Gaim version 1:2.0.0+beta4-2 from
Debian unstable with both Orca 2.17.0 and 2.17.1 with the same problem.
I only have this problem in the main buddy list window.  Every other
Gaim window is completely readable.

Is anyone else having a similar problem with Gaim?  If anyone did have
this problem and fixed it, how did you fix it?

Thanks for any help,
