I just filed this issue against VS Code where I suggest to use targeted role="document" in those places that produce HTML output for consumption, to make NVDA switch in and out of browse mode in a smart, automated, manner, reducing the number of times one has to use NVDA+Space to toggle modes. Examples I found while using the 1.44 VS Code Insider builds were:

  • The Welcome page
  • The details page for an extension
  • The ReadMe file that may be displayed after an extension has been installed.

@leonardder suggested that, once this lands in stable, a modification might be needed for the VS Code app module. So filing this issue here.

Added the needs external fix label. As soon as microsoft/vscode#93087 is addressed, we can reconsider the behavior of our appModules.

VS Code insider builds now have the fix for role="document" in some places where they make sense, and more are being added as they're discovered. I think we can reevaluate now whether the VS app module still makes sense. The Insider one can certainly be removed, the other one once VS Code 1.44 gets released.

This should be fixed for Code Insiders now. As soon as the april update of Code is there, we can revert

This reverts commit 480950f.

Removes the no-longer needed code.py appmodule.
Follow up of #10903 (removed the no-longer needed code - insiders.py appmodule)
Reverts #9828 (creating the code.py appmodule)

Changes to VS Code fixing #10888 have now made it stable. Therefore, remove the appModule which worked around these issues.
Note: Users can continue to force disable browse mode by default using a profile automatically triggered when entering vsCode that unchecks "Enable browse mode on page load" on the browse mode settings panel.
