I mean that, if I do ins+v, in Settings dialog, I don't see on braille display and orca doesn't speak on General tab and Synthetiser tab. The name of these 2 tabs is mute, as if it wasn't written. I have a blank line instead of words "General" or "Speech synthetiser" written, whereas "braille" "magnifier" appear.

I'll try again. But I'm nearly sure, among tests, I tried this and I disabled "Structured browsing" too (the second checkbox after this you tell me. But I'll try again. The problem stays as big on labanquepostale with this button that orca doesn't see. :(

hmm cool. I thought you could know easily how it was fixed. :) Personally I don't know what was changed, in particular because I don't have daily changelog and I don't know exactly what they did. But I guess this fix doesn't involve upgrading the whole package.

Well I don't know enough orca to know this, but don't you think it's only a script update? Doesn't orca work with a script for each application, or each script depends on other things in main orca?

In fact, I suggest, alternatively, to try fixing the bugs I reported (i.e. on the Internet and visible tabs) to improve orca 2.30 directly instead of fixing 2.28 (for the A and pidgin) to improve current stable release with, I hope, minor fixes.
