Re: NVDA does not read the context menu in the Edge browser
A problem has been reported on the list that, recently, the context menu doesn’t open properly so screen-readers can’t see it. I’m not sure if it doesn’t open properly or for some reason, the screen-reader doesn’t move to it. this seems to be a problem that has occurred more or less within the last week since it first was discussed about a week ago. I don’t think it is understood whether this is a problem with Edge or with Windows 10 but it evidently is related to a recent update of something.
Very strange to me Jean.
I feel sure I always open the context menu by the usual method of shift f 10 or am I getting something wrong.
Exactly what is it you or others want to achieve.
It would be difficult for me to show what the context menu gives me in edge so I can only do my best to explain

The disability answer desk has nothing to do with Microsoft’s department that corrects problems with accessibility and works on accessibility in general. they help blind people do things such as install programs or try to solve problems with programs. the competence of the techs seems to vary widely, according to reports I’ve heard. Support staff are never to be trusted implicitly. I try to avoid dealing with support staff but when I have, with various companies, I find I am given incorrect information enough that I don’t believe anything that doesn’t sound correct to me without further investigation.
Microsoft does put a good deal of work into accessibility. If you want to report this problem to the department that is responsible for accessibility, I would imagine someone can give you information about that. But your general comments about Microsoft are just plain wrong.
While I expect this problem to be corrected, it is not true that you need to use the context menu to download using the browser. I almost never use it. And there are some sites that you can’t download from using the context menu because of the way the sites work so you neede to know the other way. If you want, I will explain the other method which is the far more generally used one.
