Re: Restoring Automatic Links Continued

Hello List Members,

I wish to thank Mr. Sean Murphy for his response to my June 26, 2017
post asking the question concerning restoring links when typing
internet addresses into emails or on social media so they do not
appear just as letters. Incidentally, in the digest post, when I typed
the URL for webaim as my example, it is hyperlinked.
By way of review, I am using NVDA as a screen reader, Mozilla FireFox
as browser and Windows 7.

Unfortunately, I am not able to address the question of structure, as
that is beyond my knowledge. I can only relate the problem and how it

To clarify, is a solution to be found by going into the browser tools,
then options menu, choose the advance settings, and then what am I
listening for to specifically check or uncheck to restore automatic
link issue?

When you respond would you mind briefly stating your qualification?

Again, thank you for your time and assistance.

David Russell
