I would prefer to be able to install the distro myself without sighted assistance, just like I can with #Debian and #Arch Linux using only a refreshable braille display. I have no speech recognition so I am unable to hear Orca speak.

Thanks Microsoft, I hate it. I wish I could be like all the sighted techies out there that can just pop in a flash drive with Fedora Linux on it, set it up, and not even have to learn that much of a new interface and how to do things. Or one of the less techie people out there that open up a MacBook and click the Internet icon and when you ask them how it is they strug and go "Well I mean it's just a computer."

“1. Make the dialog focusing steps look at sequentially focusable elements instead of any focusable element.
2. Make the dialog element itself get focus if it has the autofocus="" attribute set.
3. Make the dialog element itself get focus as a fallback instead of focus being reset to the body element.”

For example, the Mac uses object navigation for everything within VoiceOver. Everything is an object, and you navigate mostly with the VoiceOver keys and sometimes you can get away with using Tab. On Windows, you primarily use Windows navigation commands, with Windows screen readers speaking any needed info. The Mac, to me, is great at writing, and email, because because it has good writing apps, and a good mail client built in. Windows is great for web navigation and games, and writing if you like Microsoft Word. The ChromeBook is good for Android apps and Linux kinda and that’s about it for me. Everything else, web, Windows can do a bit better.

1. Decade of almost no support:
• https://a11ysupport.io/tech/aria/aria-controls_attribute (2019)
2. JAWS dropped support in 2019 (see pic, since JAWS release page fails 3.2.2).
Content warning: Not safe for Apple users
Meanwhile, sources at Google say they’re working on this new feature, which allows Deaf-Blind and other Braille users to easily disconnect from the obvious health issues that come from reading too many notifications. However, the Google team aren’t sure that they can even create such a marvelous feature. Sarcasm of course.
So yeah report them bugs folks, and hopefully the Apple algo will bubble those important bugs to where the right teams can see them, instead of countless "this button is one pixel off center!" type reports.
