Also, I've seen the comment on some lists that Internet Explorer works

better with the Face Book site.  I don't know if that’s all the varieties of

use IE11, in this case, it may be the thing to do.

to stop NVDA's focus skipping of its own accord. When I do that, I can

use much better when I walk through the reactions area

and the comments area.



Both Chrome and NVDA are the latest versions (NVDA being the latest

Hello. Is the subject apt for anyone else but me? I am having many focus

I try to comment on a post I liked, and it has me doing things to the

reactions. I hit the escape key and again, I"m thrown somewhere else on the

page. I hope I can help you all solve this one. It is annoying, to say the
