Re: character count countdown with edit box

Sean Randall

I think this sort of announcement is triggered by ARIA alerts and I’m not aware of a way to stop NVDA  reading those as a matter of course. Some websites really abuse alerts, perhaps with developers not understanding the purpose of the feature.


I’d love an addon that allowed you to mark specific web-page elements to alert or not as the user wanted on-the-fly, there are probably more sites who don’t use ARIA at all than overuse it, but both cases are frustrating.

I've never seen the dynamic content setting affect what is read in browse

Could this be in any way related to whether you have the "dynamic content"
setting on?

NVDA+N,P,S, then the "Object Presentation" pane, checkbox for Report dynamic
content changes?  (Default is ON/checked)

It’s hard waking up and realizing it’s not always black and white.
