Re: NVDA does not read the context menu in the Edge browser

I did not say that there was a user experience impact – I just don’t thinkt aht I personally like the idea that much.

Brave works well both in my experience and in the experience of reputable reviewers.  The advertising system is somewhat in place but it has nothing to do with whether you can access sites or work with them whether those sites participate in the advertising model.  Brave gives excellent protection against seeing other advertisements and against being tracked.  


To clarify, it may be that some sites will block Brave just as they do other browsers that  want you not to use an ad blocker on their sites.  But that is not a problem with using Brave itself, though in such cases, it is far easier to just use a different browser than to fool around with Brave settings just for this or that site.

I’m a little dubious about Brave and their someday-to-be-imlemented advertising model. Vivaldi looks so cool. I have it and have used it a bit, but I wonder if there is a way to customise it a little more for use with screen-readers. Everything works, but as of now, screen-readers don’t seem to be able to tell the difference at all between webpage content and stuff that’s in browser. I guess it’s not a dealbreaker but it is kind of annoying.

I use Brave, Chrome, Edge, and Vivaldi as well as Firefox.  The first four in that list are all Chromium-based browsers, and if you actually want another in your browser quiver consider Vivaldi as well as Brave.  I really like both because of their focus on browser privacy to the greatest extent possible and built-in ad blocking features.  I have to use uBlock Origin in Edge and Chrome for ad blocking, and it's really impossible to do anything with regard to the data mining that goes with Chrome (and, probably to a lesser extent, but still there, with Edge).

Firefox works well with NVDA, and they have been taking more of a privacy bent in recent releases, too, but that's still not one of their primary foci.

When it comes right down to it, none of us has any right to expect any specific browser (or other software) will necessary work as we hope it would.  That's why, these days, having the number of browser options we do, almost all of which are accessible, is a wonderful development.  There's more than one for everyone.

I do not understand why some seek to separate a person from their actions.  The self is composed of an individual’s thoughts, actions, and expression, which are contained in and actuated by the body.  What you do and say is the clearest indicator of who you are.
