Does anyone know how to get the menus to work with NVDA?
For example, I go to flights, load, and press NVDA+enter on load and
all I get from NVDA is "Invoke".
How do I get the dialogs to come up? This is the only way to get to
the functions of FSPassengers.

I can speak to at least a couple of these points.
The checkboxes are weird. Basically, Window-Eyes can see them as
checkboxes, but no other screen reader can, as far as I’m aware. I have no
idea why this should be the case.
THe sliders always read at zero if you tab to them, but if you use NVDA
object navigation to explore the UI you can actually figure out the real
values. Just because it says zero doesn’t mean it actually is at zero.
Saving settings should be automatic. I have no idea why they aren’t
sticking for you. I *think* they might be saved on a per-flight basis, but
don’t quote me on that.

I still have some questions about the FSX interface. In settings, there
are some buttons which are toggles. It seems they should really have been
coded as check boxes; but alas, they’re not. Are there any tricks for
determining the state of these buttons with a screen reader?
Under sound, I see that you can adjust volume for various categories. So
for example, if I want to adjust volume for the engines, it looks like the
value is initially set at 0. If I down arrow, NVDA starts reading higher
numeric values, but does that actually increase or decrease the volume?
Normally, I would just play with it and find out, but that leads me to my
last question: What’s the recommended method for saving settings? It seems
like any changes I make are effective for the duration of the current FSX
session, but are gone the next time I restart the app. I see I can save
setting files. Am I supposed to save settings under a certain name to
insure they are loaded by default at startup?
