Assunto: [nvda] Reading browser alert message


Hi group


I'm trying to experiment with javascript alert function and for some reason, I cannot read the content of the alert window.



alert("hello world");


I know that the alert window is up but do not know how to read it's content using NVDA. It only says "OK" button.

I can confirm that the message in alert window is correct using Orca from another computer.


Please let me know how to resolve it.



- Windows 10

- Chrome latest

- NVDA 2018.3

- Laptop layout


Best Regards
