Re: Adobe Acrobat reader & NVDA

The only issue that I have with Vivaldi from the perspective of accessibility is that the toolbar controls are being rendered in the virtual buffer along with the contents of the Web page. Brave had the same issue in its early days but they’ve long since fixed it. I really should alert the Vivaldi developers about this as I have no doubt they’d want to know and that they’d very likely try to correct it.

I don't know about Vivaldi. 

Gene, when I said, "Chromium-based browsers, but the two that are my daily drivers are Vivaldi and Brave," I have no idea how I could have been any clearer.

Edge is one, too, and there are plenty more where all three of those came from.  The Chromium code base is really being exploited by myriad developers these days.

Firefox, which is not Chromium-based, also seems to have a number of folks who've created what amount to forks of Firefox.  Two that spring to mind are WaterFox and, if memory serves, Pale Moon, though I could be wrong about the latter.
