Can anybody get this website menu to work?

Usually I can get these to work by hitting space on them and then either arrowing down to the stuff inside or tabbing through them. Other times you need to route with NVDA-numpad slash and then click with numpad slash. Neither of those are working here.

The menu in question is "our polymer flutes". If you arrow to it, after a slight pause it will say "looking after your flute". I'm guessing that's the first menu choice, but if you pick the link/button, that's not what you get to. I can't figure a way to get into the menu options to pick individual choices. I suspect it has something to do with the slideshow feature because it's hard to pin navigation down sometimes.


 

In this case, "Looking after your flute," is the one and only option.

I have no trouble, using the Brave browser, NVDA's latest beta (2020.1.rc1), using the screen reader search to find the Our Polymer Flutes control.  When I land on it, after a second or so, the "looking after your flute" item pops up.  I hit tab to land on it, then hit either Enter or Spacebar to activate it, and the page for same loads.

Thanks Brian! That works in Firefox too. I think I got to that link once
but assumed there was surely other stuff, since it was a submenu. Kind
of a weird design, but that's people for you. Great instruments, kind of
odd website.
