Re: NVDA is not reading out buttons in Chrome browser

Hi Quentin,

I have created an issue in GitHub for the above item.

I have added an issue with Actual Behavior, Expected Behavior and System configuration details
I am not able to add labels and priority so they are missing.

Please update it if required.

Thanks Nayana,

Yes this seems to be an issue.  I can see several issues with mouse tracking on GitHub, however these tend to relate to various elements on pages themselves.  I didn't see one for the Browser controls themselves.  They do read for me when I navigate with the keyboard, but still not with the mouse.  Tested with 2022.1 and 2022.2Beta2 with Chrome Version 102.0.5005.115 (Official Build) (64-bit).

Do feel free to create an issue, and if your version of NVDA or Chrome is different, feel free to note mine as well.

Kind regards

I have no objection to you doing things as you wish but you are making statements and implications that updating Chrome-based browsers as most computer users do is unreliable or in some way a disadvantage to what you do, with which I most emphatically disagree.
As, I believe I can say with assurance, would virtually any professional computer tech out there.  I haven't seen a web browser that's unreliable about self-updating in a very long time and, much like Windows, if you recognize that it's not updating that indicates that something is wrong.

I have no issue with anyone choosing whatever methods they see fit to maintain their machines.  But I agree that casting doubt upon what are generally recognized as rock solid self-updating functions is counterproductive and innacurate.

That being said, we need to redirect this conversation to an "as it relates to NVDA and Chrome interacting" topic.  I can't help because the issue the OP has reported is, as far as my experience goes, singular.

It never hurts to follow The Most Basic Troubleshooting Steps for Suspected NVDA Issues

The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing in the right place but to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
