Changes (by ssawczyn):

  * version:  2.7.3 => 2.8b1


 My apologies, I'm using v 2.8.1 (3290) just downloaded last night.  I'll
 update the ticket properties to reflect the correct version.
 I'm using VoiceOver under Leopard 10.5.1 in case that throws another
 problem in the mix.  I've been working more with it today and no matter
 what I try, can not get the information read as the table objects are
 identified as unknown and as such, VoiceOver won't allow me to "interact"
 with them.  I even triednot allowing completed transfers to clear thinking
 that the text might become static and that VoiceOver might "see" it
 When you switched VoiceOver on, did you navigate to the transfer window
 using the mouse, or the VoiceOver commands?  It *might* be possible for
 VoiceOver to read the text if the mouse is hovered over it, however, for a
 totally blind user, this won't work.  I have seen otehr programs where
 this has been the case -- VoiceOver doesn't recognize an object, however,
 if it's clicked, it can see the data within the object.  I'll keep
 testing, but so far, the major issue seems to just be the tarnsfers
 window, main window sems to work fine, remote file list works perfect,
 just the transfers and potential error messages aren't identified.
