Re: [orca-list] Debugging Webbrowsing

Hi all,

thanks for your suggestions. Particularly, the Orca+a binding is good to
know about. Indeed, I have succeeded entering a search term this way.
Strangely, this does not seem to work quite always as expected. At some
point I had the impression that Orca switched back into navigation mode
while I was typing. Generally, the response of Firefox and / or Orca to
my key strokes seems to be lagging considerably more and more often on
my AMD system than on the Intel system.

May be I should check whether all settings regarding popup blockers like
UBlock Origin are the same. However, I seem to have difficulties
checking the settings of UBlock Origin. When I select „add-ons and
themes“ from the extras menu, I can find UBlock Origin and choose
settings. But then I am stuck, somehow, with Orca saying
„1about-scheme“. Do you know what to do in such a situation?

Thanks again for your advice so far,

As Milton suggested, using Orca+a to toggle focus mode is more
reliable than  trying to navigate to something adjacent to the textbox
and then tabbing to the textbox to give it focus.

The Orca key is usually set to insert on desktops and caps lock on
laptops, but can be configured independantly of the desktop/laptop
keyboard mode toggle.
