Hello all,

George said :
It is a generally accepted practice by screen readers to associate text
adjacent to a text box as being a Label if it has a colon after it.  I
rather suspect
that adding a colon will resolve the issue.

I think is a good solution to solve this problem.


This evening, I make some others verifications and here andall the time all
dialog box work good, but not de shortcut preference.

Here, i use jaws 4.51 and de verbosity level in dbt script in frenchis set
to beginers.

into the dialogs box : Find, Find and replace, go to page, Page numering,
all is ok. I don't find yet a dialog box not working good except the
Shortcut preference.

Thanks for your attention.

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
far)?
