In Internet Explorer 9, NVDA's mouse echo feature seems to be highly inaccurate.

For example, if I have a web page containing a heading, followed by some text, then point the mouse at the heading, NVDA starts reading the text below, not the heading I just pointed at.

It seems as if NVDA is not correctly determining the object under the mouse in Internet Explorer. I'm not sure how to better test this issue, so I'm filing a ticket as I believe it to be a bug in either NVDA or Internet Explorer.

I remember filing a similar ticket back in 2011 regarding a similar issue in Mozilla Firefox, and that issue has since been fixed by Mozilla.

Any information regarding this issue in Internet Explorer would be appreciated.

Thank you.
Blocking #2727

MSHTML NVDAObject: take MSHTML's DPI scaling in to account when calculating an object's location or finding an object at a particular point. This will compensate for system DPI settings and MSHTML's own zoom settings. Re #3494

@k_kolev1985, @timveld: It'd be great if you can confirm whether this fixes the issues you were having with mouse tracking reading the wrong content. This fix should be available in the 23 October "next" snapshot. (The text unit resolution problem is a separate issue and not relevant here.) Thanks.

Well, I don't have a machine with IE9 anymore, so I can't tell for sure. But I can't reproduce it with IE11.
