Interesting Observations About NVDA And Edge Browser


Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

With all this talk about Microsoft Edge recently, I am intrigued by the one main flaw that I see.  All major navigation items seem to work quite well such as headings, tables, lists, list items, combo boxes, buttons and edit fields.  Of course as mentioned previously, the visited and unvisited links function does not work.  If this is somehow ever fixed, Edge will work great.  It gives great feedback for open  dialogues, the notification bar, the save/save as dialogues and so on.

I wonder if some sort of add on could be set up to solve this one significant issue.

Hi
For me the frames (m), list items(i) unvisited links (u), visited links (v) and block quotes (q) are unsupported browse quick keys when using edge.

Cheers
Chris

Hi,
Fixing this and other Edge issues require close collaboration between UI Automation and NVDA: UIA to expose the right attributes, and teaching NVDA to recognize new attributes.
Cheers,
Joseph

In other browsers, links are identified as visited from history.  If you delete history, all visited link indications will be lost.  It's an interesting speculation as to whether Edge is not making history information available to browsers as it should.

The question is, is there any way a sighted person can see visited links?
If yes and its in a way which can exist in the browse mode buffer, then I guess it could but I've read the info and suspect not, at least not at the moment.
