Re: can't select radio buttons in a webpage
data-toggle=”buttons” attribute surrounding the radio buttons. From some quick glances at comments on the web, this is a boot strap process designed to create check boxes that act like radio buttons but can be unselected, but I believe the latest boot strap has also disabled this type of widget.
Of course the real issue is where is the bug causing NVDA with Chrome difficult to select a radio button in this style. It the issue is limited to the bank, then I am not concerned. If it is a boot strap issue, then that is more worrisome. Anybody with experience developing boot strap sites feel like coding up a quick example?

What are you basing your description of radio button function on? If you are in browse mode, you should be able to press space bar on a radio button on a web site and it will be selected. This is different than a dialog box, where radio buttons are automatically selected by up or down arrowing through them. the one you are on is automatically selected. Return is never used to select a radio button and using return to try to select it may have unwanted consequences such as activating the default button in a dialog, such as the ok button.
If you are in forms mode on a web site, up and down arrowing should automatically select radio buttons, as in a dialog.

I looked a little at the HTML code, and the readio buttons are coded as standard radio buttons and don’t appear to have any strange HTML code. I believe the CSS layout is farily modern without using tables for layout purposes, not that that would effect accessibility by Chrome.
With no screen reader and using Safari on a Macintosh , I believe my wife found it difficult to change between investments and the other two categories of the radio button. I believe there might be a change event listener on the radio button, but I am not great at that level of page debugging. They have certainly done some work to make dialog boxes work correctly for screen readers, so I expect it is an oversight of the developers that the site does not work properly with NVDA and Chrome. I would suggest contacting the bank and tell them you are having some accessibility issues.
Correct keyboard behavior should be:

Although the following page is in portuguese, if you press f you will be placed in the first group of radio buttons.
I was trying to select the button whose labe is investimentos. But I couldn’t.
I made this test in schrome.
