VoiceOver problem with contact list, VoiceOver problem with message edit box

Description (last modified by Frank)

On Mac OS X 10.6.6 Snow Leopard, the VoiceOver screen reader has problems with the contact list and the message box for typing. Here is what I've found.

When arrowing up and down in the contact list, VoiceOver says "empty" before each contact. It will also, after using the up and down arrows after a time, stop speaking when they are pressed, making the user press the VoiceOver keys (Control Option), or make the user interact with the table to get the contact information, however the VoiceOver keys still must be used.

A more critical issue, however, is the message edit field. From testing, I have not been able to review what I have typed in. Also, pressing return sends the message, or is supposed to, but sometimes this isn't the case. I think it may have something to do with VoiceOver.

I hope this helps. I've always liked Adium, but this has been going on since Snow Leopard.

  1. VoiceOver says "empty" before each contact
    • Confirmed
  2. It will also [...] stop speaking
    • I couldn't reproduce
  3. message edit field [...] [un]able to review what I have typed in
    • Works fine for me
  4. pressing return sends the message [not all the time]
    • Works fine for me

Therefore I'm limiting this to just item 1.
