Customers of ag-Grid

I am not a customer, but I am evaluating ag-Grid for a client, a potential ag-Grid customer.

Requesting Community Support

I understand this will be closed if inactive for one month. However, as a non-customer I have no other way to report bugs.

Providing a Reproducible Scenario

  1. Go to the ag-Grid page promoting its accessibility.

  2. Scroll to the bottom and find the only demo on the page, opening the Plunker in its own window (I provide that link for ease of accessing it, but still do step 1 so you have the latest ag-Grid-sanctioned accessible demo).

  3. Using NVDA, navigate to the grid (typically by pressing T, though it does not always work for this demo).

  4. Using Ctrl + Alt + left or right arrow, navigate the column headings to ensure you are in the grid.

  5. From any column header, press Ctrl + Alt + down arrow to move into the next row (the first data row).

Current behavior
NVDA announces "Edge of table" instead of moving to the next row.

Expected behavior
I should move to the cell immediately below the column header, NVDA should announce it.

Please tell us about your environment:

  • ag-Grid version: Whatever is the version in your live demo.

  • Browser:

    • Firefox 69, NVDA 2019.2
  • Language: Whatever is the language in your live demo.
