I've never actually seen one of those. Although I do not believe NVDA indicates when a longdesc is actually available, does it?

A long description (often shortened to "longdesc") is used by web authors to provide additional details about a web element (typically images) via a dedicated description. As such, it is employed in browse mode only.
