If you go to file then help then about what is your version
The latest version for me is.
91.0.864.54 (Official build) (64-bit)
If you don't have that version edge will update itself then click
restart then try again.

That would account for my seeing the
context menu as Nothing, as far as I am aware is updated
lately on my system.
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.

Re: [nvda] NVDA does not read the context menu
in the Edge browser
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.

[nvda] I don't think that microsoft wants
to fixt the problem with the context menu
in the edge brouser
I justgot a call back
from the disability answer desk and the guy told
me to do a clean install of my windows or use
the nvda redgistery tool.
I told him that other peoplealso are having this
problem so it's not
mywindows or my nvda it is on their end. He
kept on trying to get me to
do what he said but I told him that I will not
do that. If they don't
want to fix the problem that this just proves
once and for all that
microsoft does not care one bit about
accessability. When they turn off
ie next year you will not be able to down load
anything using their
brouser. I hope that they are proud
ofthemselves for not caring enough
to fix the problem of the context menu not
reading in the edge brouser.
We nownot to expect any real accessability from
now on. They are saying
it's your problem not ours. When we call them
to tell them of an
accessability issue we will be told thats our
problem not ours. I don't
have any respect for them at all. If they would
have told me that they
are awhear of the problem and they are working
on a sulution that would
be a different story but that is not the case.
Thats your dumb
forigeners for you they are to bit and lazy and
programers are a joke whear did they get their
degree? Out of a cracker
