Issue With NVDA and Settings Button in GMail Account


Ron Canazzi
 

Hi Group,

I have GMail set up to use with Thunderbird mail client locally, so I haven't done much on the GMail web interface in years.  I was trying to assist someone with changing their web interface settings.  When I clicked on the settings button in GMail's web interface, nothing happened. This is with NVDA latest stable build 2020.4 and Firefox latest version.  GMail is set to standard view.

Does anyone else experience this issue?

Ron, on pages like that, it's not loading a new web page, but, just updating part of it, without using anything like an aria-live attribute to make sure something like NVDA is then aware of the change.


In other words, once activating the settings link/button, jump through headings on the gMail page, and you should find the settings section lower down.


Stay well
