Re: [orca-list] orca and clickable links

Yes that works and for the example I was thinking of it makes the website work in a fairly usable way (once you realise what parts can be clicked) where as other screen readers the website is almost point the mouse and hope. However I notice something which may want some attention (unsure whether it is really a bug or an enhancement as its something which doesn't work as naturally as I would expect but isn't necessarily "wrong" in the way orca has been planned to work up to now).

Anyway what is the problem, I would expect that using the cursor routing keys on my Braille display should perform a mouse click at the point where the cursor routing key relates. When I try this orca only positions the caret there (unless it is a link). Under my idea of how cursor routing keys work, if nothing should happen normally on a click the cursor should be routed there (may be orca still passes firefox a mouse click and firefox does the cursor routing).

Have you tried to route the mouse pointer to the caret location and then
perform a left mouse click?

Could I make this more general, could we have a way of clicking mouse
buttons at the caret position in firefox?

Hello, Is there any work going on for making orca access the
clickable links in ff? There are many sites which use these links
extensively. Orca just says "text" for all such links not allowing
to click them.
