Re: Links on websites with submenus and/or links that NVDA can't interact with

I was using Chrome.  I tested with my XP machine, which I use for e-mail in general.  My version of Chrome is old, for that reason, but I would expect the site to work the same if I tested with my current Chrome version on my Windows 7 machine.  I may do that to be sure.

Hmm. Were you using Chrome?

I'll have to double check to see if JavaScript is on in Chrome.
