But in other screen-readers, we don't have to quit anyone (the installer or screenreader).

Thank you.

Hello, subject says it all, but is it a bug, I was installing ms office,
pressed space, a menu came, nvda did not read anything, I turned JAWS

These installers seem to do something a bit strange with regard to detecting screen readers. I don't quite know how it works, but I've noticed that if I quit the installer, restart NVDA and then load the installer again, those menus start reading. Also, you see the current status of the item in the tree. I suspect they only enable accessibility if the screen reader flag is set or some such, but don't understand why it is getting disabled in the first place.
