Hi Quentin. I have been using Chrome for quite a while and so i
can't tell you if Chrome is the culprit or not since the button
is still seen by JFW. For me at least, NVDA seems to no longer
read the button correctly since the early 2019 version, so if it
was a chrome or youtube update, won't JFW face the same issue
then? The "Clickable" word to me is not an issue for me right now
as I depend upon it to tell me that I am on the "Skip ad" button.

Can you confirm whether the issue is with newer versions of
NVDA, or recent updates to YouTube (or your browser)?
Looking at YouTube in FireFox 68.0.1 with NVDA 2019.2rc1, I
can see a "Clickable skip ad" button when there is an ad
showing. You can either get to it with tab or b (or shift+tab
or shift+b), or you can do an NVDA search for "skip" is
usually enough to find it.
For the "clickable" part, if you don't want clickable
announced, you can turn that off in NVDA's document settings
I must admit, I have a YouTube subscription so I haven't
seen ads in awhile to know if that behaviour has changed
Not so long ago, with the previous versions, the "Skip ad"
on youtube could be read by NVDA. Now however, the newer
NVDA seem to read that particular button just as "Clickable".
rather unfortunate that one has to navigate to the slider
us to skip a video back or forward, then arrow up to the
button immediately above the slider to activate it. The "Skip
button is still recognized by JFW as usual. Perhaps I am
something? Just letting the NVDA team know. Cheers!
