Context menu differs between right-mouse click and application key
I am trying to copy a graphic embedded in a link in a web page. The html link code might look something like the following:
<a href="www.site.com" target="_blank">Link Text<img src="assets/images/general/new-window.png" alt="opens in a new window" width="16" height="16"></a>
Notice that the image tag is embedded in the anchor tag. On the website, I navigate to the graphic (by using the “g” key or by navigating to the link and using cursor keys until NVDA speaks the work graphic). I then right-click on the image by pressing the Application key (or Shift+F10). In Firefox, I get a context menu similar to:
However, if I route the mouse to the cursor and press the right mouse button (or press the NumPad / key) I get a different context menu, as follows:
Note that the right mouse click presents a context menu that allows working with the image (which is what I want) that is not present in the application key context menu. Similar results appear in other browsers.
The question is:
Is this an NVDA issue or a Microsoft / browser issue. Once I know, I will forward to the appropriate company.
You can try this for yourself: Go to a website like www.seeingeye.org and press Control+Home to get to the top of the page. This will position you at their logo, which is also a link. Try the two different context menu invocation methods and notice the difference.
