No it is not a general problem. With latest Jaws 2022 I can interact normally with this combobox which cannot be said for NVDA. I can move to it with E, even if it doesn't anounce it, and I can turn on forms mode to type into it. So this is indeed squarely NVDA.

OK, I know this is off topic, but I will make two comments and say no more.
First, this is not a nvda problem, I get the same results with jaws.
Second. I created a shortcut that takes me to the "advanced search" in audible and this solved the problem.

I am seeing the same behavior and tabbing also does not help.

Tabbingdoes not help. Bringing up the list of elements does not help.
I told the audible help about this.
So, instead, I go to the advanced search and work from there.
A few extra keystrokes, but at least I get to search.

Have any of you noticed normal navigation doesn't apply to the
Audible search box? They have made a change where the combo box
editable cannot be navigated to by c or e/f. You have to use tab, and browse mode won't work.
However it is possible to type into it.
