I just checked on my Windows 10 machine using Firefox and NVDA.
I didn't work with the sign up form, but I did enter information in
the sign in form, a fictitious e-mail address and password. The
button was read as a typical button. When I pressed the space bar
on it. I received a message that I couldn't be logged in with the
information I provided. The button worked properly.

I haven't looked on my Windows 10 machine and I may see something
different when I do, but the button is just a button as far as
what NVDA says using Firefox and Windows 7.
I haven't registered nor tried to sign in. But I looked at how
the button is read, both the sign in button and the create an
account submit button.

Normally, with these commercial websites, I am pretty efficient
with finding ways around various obstacles presented to screen
reader users with respect to graphics, and other items presented
by such sites. However, one stumps me completely. the Lane
Bryant website: https://lanebryant.com
has a sign in button that identifies itself as 'press and hold.'
When you try activating it with a screen reader, you get an
authentication failure. I have cookies and JAVA script enabled,
so I know that isn't the problem.
I have tried pressing and holding the space bar, switching to
edit mode and doing the same, pressing enter, routing mouse to
application position and clicking, and so on and nothing works.
Is there a technique for these web buttons that you can use with
NVDA to activate such 'press and hold' items?
Thanks for any help.
