Can you provide a link to a page with a read only edit field? I
don't recall sites that have them. I probably just read the content
and don't pay attention much if the field says read only. I would
ordinarily read text where I am not writing in browse mode.

I just tried the Google search field and I had no problem but that
isn't a read only edit field.

In Google Chrome running on Windows 10 Home
Edition, NVDA only announces the first character of whatever
text is present when in focus mode and using the arrow keys to
navigate by character inside read-only text boxes. For
example, if the text box contains the word “Hello,” pressing
the left or right arrow keys just results in NVDA saying “H.”
Similar behavior occurs in Microsoft Edge
except NVDA says the word “blank” instead of the first
character in the text box. This suggests it may be a broader
issue with Chromium browsers. In Firefox, NVDA functions
normally in read-only text boxes.
I’ve also opened a GitHub ticket for this
issue which can be found here:
I searched existing closed and open issues

of this issue. Please refer to my bug report for more details
