Re: NVA ignoring aria-hidden in IE 11 and Edge

I have forwarded your query to the developers.
From: grady.mcghee@... [mailto:grady.mcghee@...]
It appears to be isolated when NVDA is using IE or Edge as I am not having this in Chrome.
Here is my code for our HTML5 video player:
<video id="view-video" controls>
<source src="#" type="#">
<span aria-hidden="true">Your browser does not support the video tag.</span>
Despite putting a <span> with an aria-hidden=”true”, NVDA will still read “Your browser does not support the video tag.” while the video is loading. Once the video is loaded, it will play. For some reason when using IE, NVDA will not ignore that text. It does not read it when using Chrome nor does VoiceOver read it. Is this an old bug that didn;t get fully fixed. I remember an issue aria-hidden in NVDA 2014 but thought is was fixed in 2015.
