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

Please let me know how to resolve it.


- Windows 10

- Chrome latest

- NVDA 2018.3

- Laptop layout

Best Regards
Edhoari Setiyoso
