Microsoft isn't necessarily retrofitting it.
When Edge was released, it wasn't complete and at least one review and I would
imagine more, state that it is not finished yet and that it will be a good
browser when it is but that it still has rough spots currently.

Quick update: It gets stranger still.
After updating to the Canary
version of Chrome, I get the message "unknown" repeatedly, easily five or more
times, every time I navigate using a link or url. Also, using the arrow keys in
focus mode on inbox.google.com
the element I am leaving, not the one I am navigating to. Observed on two
systems. Back to IE it is, at least until MS lets us use Edge. Why in the case
of Edge they regard accessibility as something to retrofit into a product once
everything else is dealt with is anyone's guess. It's more expensive this
Accessibility-wise, Chrome remains out of the question for
me. I type an URL and hit enter, and the website will not be navigated to
automatically by the screen reader. I have to do NVDA+F5 and sometimes tab, f6
and such. It's hit or miss, and more miss than hit. Others, strangely enough,
seem blissfully unaffected by all this while I keep running into it on every
system. Whatever it is I'm doing wrong, it seems difficult to pin down.
Suggestions appreciated, though.
Seems we're headed for a browser crisis.
Yes, I have experienced it, too. I do
not know whether Jaws users have been experiencing it, too. It would be good
to compare both the screen readers with regard to Mozilla Firefox, so that
an issue concerning this may be considered, and it may also be found out
whether the issue comes from either NVDA or Jaws, or even Mozilla Firefox

Is anyone else experiencing sluggish behavior in
Firefox 45? Specifically, the following occurs for me with NVDA, but may
or may not be related to NVDA of course:
- NVDA randomly
repeating the Window title
- Navigation sometimes bounces back to
the previously selected element if I go too fast. When navigating very
slowly this does not occur. By navigation, I refer to the arrow keys and
also to quick nav keys like h for heading and k for link.
Responsiveness is generally slow when arrowing around in complex web pages
like Facebook, Youtube etc.
I am suspecting NVDA is involved to
some extent as the affected key commands are interpreted by NVDA rather
than by FF.
Has anyone experienced this, and found a way to
Kind regards and happy Easter to all of you who
