I don't have this problem using Edge with Windows 7. I doubt
this is an NVDA problem.

This may be an Edge
error, or it could be an NVDA error.
I just tried this and while SHIFT+F10 definitely brings up the
context menu when NVDA is running, focus does not shift to it, but
remains on the page in Edge itself. This is not the case when
NVDA is off. If I do SHIFT+F10 without NVDA running, and hit
either up or down arrow, I am traversing the context menu.
It's not clear to me if this is an NVDA bug or an Edge bug. But
since you say you get the same misbehavior with Narrator, I
suspect that something is not being exposed to the screen reader
by Edge that should be that allows the screen reader to have focus
set in the Context Menu when it appears. I don't have JAWS on
this machine, or I'd try a quick test with it. I suspect the same
issue would present itself, which would really point the finger at
Edge (or something in Windows that Edge depends upon for context
