Re: Adobe Flash Player Installation Query

Adrian,

Not sure if I ever was convinced that Adobe had accessibility in their mission 
statement. but your assumptions match mine, and my computer didn't blow up.

Now what really annoys me is that on a web page we get all these unlabeled 
buttons when we are expected to play some flash. So there's an example of 
Adobe's consistency in their non-accessibility position.

  It took a week for this Adobe Flash update message to reappear, but it just 
did. Thanks to Roy and the others who helped. Still, it wasn't smooth sailing.

  First, insert-b gave me no new information. I still had before me an 
unlabelled button and the other saying simply, "Q."

  Following lister advice, I clicked on the non-q of the two buttons and was 
presented with a screen of three buttons. This time one was unlabelled, one 
said "Q" again, and the third said "I." If "Q" stood for "quit," I figured "I" 
must stand for "install." I clicked on it, after which a third screen appeared 
with the "I" button again. And again I pressed spacebar on it. The screen went 
away, and I'm left with no idea whether the installation completed.

  I thought the people at Adobe got the whole accessibility message.

  well q is "quit" and the unlabeled one is the one you need to activate the 
install. Roy

  Subject: Adobe Flash Player Installation Query

  Hi. I keep receiving a message on rebooting my computer that Adobe wants to 
install a new version of its flash player. Unfortunately, it doesn't appear 
consistently or else I would have had someone sighted look at the screen.

  the first appearance shows a clear "Install" button, which I click on. 
However, the next screen shows two buttons, one with no label and the other 
with the unhelpful label of "Q."

  Can someone tell me what these two buttons represent?
