Re: Chrome forms with NVDA

Sean Randall

Hi Brian,

Sorry, I did mean an edit box in a form, but I was using google forms as an example, which is clearly confusing.

Most all web pages in Chrome with edit fields have this issue, an example is at If I enter browse mode  in the search field on that page, I hear:

Search the web without being tracked  edit  overall type: UNKNOWN_TYPE server type: NO_SERVER_DATA heuristic type: UNKNOWN_TYPE label: Search the web without being tracked parseable name: q section: q_1-default field signature: 1012080445 form signature: 378668188462997795 form renderer id: 1 field renderer id: 10  Search the web without being tracked

Can you clarify what you mean by "Google Form"?  I don't think you're referring to an edit box in an online form under Chrome, but I'm not sure what it is you are referring to.

If a specific example can be supplied, that would be helpful, whether that's a URL or something else that could be worked with.
