I was pointing this out because you may be reading messages out of sequence in general and that may cause you annoyance and make threads unnecessarily difficult to follow.

Do you read messages from newest to oldest?  If sso, you will answer messages out of sequence and not read them in logical order.  I'm asking because you appear to have read my second message first.

yes, since Edge is not available in any earlier versions of Windows.

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>

            </video>

 

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.
