Nightly testers, stay on the 27th of August build if you're using a screen reader on Windows!

Marco Zehe-3
Hello there!

If there are people on this list using the nightly builds with a screen
reader (a program that reads web pages out loud to the blind) on
Windows, please be aware that the nightly builds starting August 28,
2010, are currently broken when it comes to creating virtual buffers.
Basic Microsoft Active Accessibility is working.

The reason is the landing of Bug 130078
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=130078>, which caused the
accessibility API support to regress. See bug 591874
<https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=591874> for the discussion
and to observe the development of a fix.

If you want to continue testing the nightly builds, stay on the August
27, 2010 build for now. I will let this list know when the bug has been
fixed and it is safe again to use the latest and greatest.

Thanks,
Marco

  Hi All,

Just a heads up I blogged about this issue here:

If you have a product affected by this we want to hear from you.

cheers,
David
