[macvoiceover] Re: frustrating problem with VO and Safari

Mark and all,

I never seem to have these problems, and I don't have my toolbar hidden, although I sure could. I do have some trouble with an occasional website - mainly the VO-cursor not staying focused in the frame I want to read, but other than that...

        I am, however, experiencing an interesting behavior with Safari and VO.

Yesterday I installed the latest Java and security updates from Software Update, and began to notice something interesting. I have the 5-key, on my NumPad, defined as a mouse-click. My NumPad Enter key is defined as Perform Action. It used to be, until yesterday, that if I pressed NumPad Enter on a link, the link would be activated - NumPad 5 would achieve the same results. Now, though, if I press Enter on a link, VO just makes a loud "thunking" noise. NumPad 5, on the other hand, activates the links. If I'm on a checkbox, popup menu, button - some control like that, however, Enter will activate it.

        Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed this?

For reference, I'm running 10.5.6 on a 2.16GHz MacBook, 160GB hard drive, 2GB RAM, etc. Unfortunately, the updates I installed don't show up in the Installed Updates section of Software Update, so can't tell you, exactly, what they were.

Regards,

Ron

Yeah, those things tend to get in the way for those of us who use Voice Over. :)

Thanks, Randy and all; I've since found it, and have hidden everything else as well, which seems to have have fixed the problem.
