Hello Émile,

You report having problems associating labels with edit controls only in the
Shortcut Preferences dialog, but no other dialog.  In this I assume that you
include the Edit, Replace dialog.

What puzzles me is that none of our dialogs uses any particular technique
other than hopefully-logical layout to cause a screen reader to associate a
label with an edit field.  The layout of the Edit, Replace dialog and the
Shortcut Preferences dialog is quite similar.  But the labels in the Edit,
Replace dialog end with a colon, whereas those in the Shortcut Preferences
dialog do not.  Perhaps this is a context clue to the screen reader.  Does
this odd theory sound familiar to you (or to anybody else who has read this
