Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Under Windows 7, go to Windows Disk Management.
  2. If you land on the Treeview, press TAB until NVDA says: "Graphical View".
  3. Press DOWN ARROW to navigate through the table.
    Result: NVDA says nothing.

Not sure there's much we can do here. The accessibility of this control looks to be pretty broken. You can access it to some extent with object navigation. This needs more thorough investigation, but I suspect it'll be cantfix.

But Cobra can access this information.

Cobra is probably doing something very hacky to access it. I don't know how Cobra is doing it, but the control's standard accessibility is certainly rather broken.

I don't think the resolution should be set to "fixed", til this is merged in master - that way you're risking your patch to be forgotten.
However, I can't reopen it for some reason.

Hi,
Please don't close it as fixed unless if it is an invalid ticket. We should wait until Jamie or Mick comments on this patch.
Thanks.

Since its been quite some time since this was tested. Could someone test this again, and create a PR for the inclusion of the attachment.

  1. Open file explorer with Windows+E
  2. Shift+Tab to the treeview
  3. Arrow down to "This-PC"
  4. Press the right mouse button with numpad *
  5. Press enter on the manage option
  6. Walk with the arrow keys down to Disk Manager
  7. Now press tab until NVDA says "graphical table view"
  8. Try to use the arrow keys to view the items
