I have redownloaded the latest nighty build right now and reinstalled it -
seems that your fix has no effect - nothing has changed - the screen capture
part of the screen reader does not see the label at all. The label is
present it is read by the MSAA part of a screen reader and the static window
is reported as visible - it should be present on the screen - but no test
'To Path' is visible on the screen by a screen reader and no hotkey can be
caught for this static label. The label I am talking about has an ID of 1384
and is for a combo edit with an ID of 1029.

To be honest I have found several others such labels:
1. static label with the ID of 1259 for the readonly edit with ID of 1045 in
the same dialogue.
2. static label with ID of 1376 that is for the combo edit with ID of 1029
in the checkout dialogue.
3. a static lable with the ID of 1074 that is for the edit with the ID of
1010 also in checkout dialogue.

In all these three cases in opposite to the one causing this discussion the
screen readers easily catch the hotkey though the screen capturing part of
screen reader does not catch the text on this label only MSAA part does so
they do not cause a problem - this can be left as is. May be knowing these
cases will help you to understand what is the cause for such a behaviour in
the discussed situation.

As I can understand you have not yet added the scripts to the installer
right? Please let me know when you are finished for me to start testing.

Thank you.
