An Anomaly in the Order in Which Collapsed links are Announced


Rechell Schwartz <rechell_schwartz@...>
 

I went to the NVDA home page and noticed something unusual. When tabbing through the navigation items it announced which ones were collapsed after it read the link names (e.g, Corporate/Government ‘collapsed’). However in Say All mode it announced ‘collapsed’ before reading the collapsed link, so it sounded like it was appending the word ‘collapsed’ to the previous menu item (e.g., Download ‘collapsed’ Corporate/Government).


This difference is very confusing. Does it always treat expanded/collapsed in ‘Say All’?

You will often find that attributes of controls are read in a different order when tabbing.  This may be intentional, I don't know.  But it should be the same either way. 
The user should be able to control this behavior and it should be consistent no matter how you move, being controlled completely by the setting as to order.
 
For another example of difference, note the difference in order when tabbing to a visited link and arrowing to it or using read current line on it.
