Re: NVDA Chokes Up When Arrowing Down

I get the same thing in firefox. I also get a ton of unknowns when arrowing through in chrome. Chrome needs a lot of work for me anyway as links aren’t clicked half the time.

I have, to my own dismay, switched to jaws until this is fixed.

I get it on both Windows 10 and 7, and on both my desktop and laptop.
