Hi Eric,

As far as I can tell neither of these issues are filed right now. I'm
copying the accessibility newsgroup, some people there might be able to
help you further. Otherwise, you could try to file a bugreport with as
much detail as possible at https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/ (use the
"Firefox" product, and the "Disability Access" component). Also, would
the Select-and-Say feature being available for textboxes be separate
from the slowness? If so, please file it as a third, separate bug.

Thanks a lot for your help,
Gijs

Re: accessibility issue of

Hi there,
Yes,please file these as bugs and we'll take a look at them.  We should
be able to get slect-and-say working in those text areas.  The focus
issues with the autocomplete may be a bit more problematic.


Thanks for your help.
