Yes a sighted user would hover over the notification to keep it for longer.
I have set mouse tracking on, which I think is the way to tell NVDA to move mouse alongwith the browser mode focus. But mouse cursor does not move on majority of the places, that's what people tell me.
I have been using screen readers for little less than a year now, and probably do not know some commands and jargons very well, sorry for that.

Evidently you are asking about moving through a web page and whether in
browse mode, that causes java script events to occur. In NVDA, Browse Mode
is the name for what JAWS calls the Virtual PC Cursor. I don’t know when,
and how JAVA events may occur. When I down arrow through a web page, on
some pages, JAVA events occur that cause parts of the page to be shown that
aren’t shown otherwise. But whether there is any connection between this
and what you are asking about, I don’t know. But how do sighted people
move in what you are describing? Do they hover the mouse to cause what you
want to happen? If so, do you know how to move the mouse using NVDA?
Have you tried being on something on the page you are asking about and moving
the mouse there?
The mouse may not move there if you use the NVDA move mouse commands, on
some web ppages, proper movement doesn’t occur but it often does.
In summary, my questions are, how do sighted people keep the notifications
on screen longer and can you do so by moving the mouse to the

there is no way to know about virtual cursor position, especially if the mouse
is not following the browse cursor. If you use the focus cursor then it will get
events, as well as if the mouse moves in or out of the elements .
Folks at my organization are building a toast notification for something,
I know they are not good friends for many of us, but that's a different part
of the story as they are doing only for cosmetic updates.
The problem is that when I arrow over the notification and read it, it
disappears while my virtual cursor is still on it. They have handled events to
detect hover and focus to increase the timeout but nothing related to other
Are there any JS events triggered by NVDA virtual cursor when on a page
which can be handled to reset the timeout in such a case?
