I think they should if they read the manuals etc. If not, well, they would have to go back to the documentation and learn.

There is an expand/collapse button which causes the listbox to expand/collapse. The listbox options are navigable using the arrow keys. The problem is NVDA does not automatically go into focus mode when the listbox is expanded. So if the user happened to be in browse mode they would hear the listbox name and the word list and the word clickable and the name of the first entry in the list. So my question is, would the typical NVDA user realize that they must switch to focus mode whenever they hear the word clickable?
