curious about NVDA and it's behavior in different browsers.

Hi list there is something very frustrating that happens from time to time on internet explorer.  When I’m on Facebook browsing my notifications from time to time there is one regular poster to one of the groups I’m in who posts these quizzes to the group.  They are indicated by a musical notes Icon. For some reason that icon link is broken into pieces.  Trying to read the notification when this happens is impossible.  That icon was there a total of 26 time.  Have done the same thing on chrome and can verify there is only one link there.  What is happening and is there anything that can be done to correct this?  Am not sure if this is an NVDA issue or a browser issue.  Any thoughts.

that is strange. What keys are you using to navigate to these links, are you using tab or up and down arrow keys?  I have almost the same type of thing happen when I use the twitter website with microsoft edge.  When reading tweets the reply retweet etc buttons will all be read as one chunk making it impossible to hit enter on them. The way I get around it is, I use left and right to get to the button I want than I press enter and that works. Maybe you should try that for your problem. Hope it helps Ken

Perhaps you wouldn't have this problem if you uncheck use screen layout where supported.  If you uncheck it, every link will appear on its own line.  It may also be true of buttons.  Use screen layout where supported, I feel very strongly, shouldn't be the default.

Yeah, stop using IE and switch to edge. And then see if the problem is fixed.

Good luck.

Hi, Ken,


I don't know for sure but it could be internet explorer. I've switched to firefox now.
