Re: Accessing alerts on webpages


I'm not sure if you can see them again.  Every now and then, I've looked around but I often haven't found them.  I wonder if they can be heard in speech history.  If speech is interrupted by new speech, I wonder if everything that would have been spoken is in speech history.

To be fair, it's not that simple. A lot of times for me, alerts get
interrupted by some other web event, and i only get part of them. So
having a way to access them would be pretty handy. Suppose for example
that a page is loading. An alert pops up, but then the page finishes
loading and NVDA begins reading the page. There goes the alert message.
