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

What is the text of the link you are working with.  I didn't see links I would necessarily expect to bring up menus.  If you just press enter on the link, what happens.  I would want to test the same link or links.

Okay, I can get it to work, kind of, but mine doesn't work like a
regular link. I have to do a route mouse command to the link with
capslock shift M on Laptop layout and the menu comes up. It does not
when I press enter on it, though...
