Subject: [nvda] Bugs in Chrome with NVDA 2019.3



I updated to NVDA 2019.3, and sites on Chrome are broken. These problems did not happen with NVDA 2019.2.1:

I am unable to look at publications on the following site after hitting enter on " + Conference Papers":


When someone calls me on Google Hangouts, I am unable to hear the "Hang up" or "Answer call" button when I tab around.


Often, on almost every website, when I click a link, the screen does not refresh for some of the links.

For example:

Click on "Laptops". Visually the screen refreshes, but the screen doesn't refresh for NVDA until I switch windows and come back.


On Google Docs and Google Sheets, when a sheet or doc opens with braille support disabled, NVDA says "blank" before every item.


In Gmail, sometimes when I open a message, the message is blank but for a blank clickable element on I need to repeatedly refresh the screen for the content to show to NVDA. The content is there visually.


I am unable to open PDFs in Gmail in the default viewer.


Often the buttons for attachments show as disabled, but when I click on "Download", even if it says it's disabled, the document downloads.


These are just a handful of problems I have encountered.


I'm using Chrome Version 80.0.3987.106 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Thank you,
