I've noticed that NVDA don't work properly anymore with role=presentation attribute.

The attached code is connected with another ticket :


The functions of elements are the same.

In attached is simple code to explain the situation.
Styles are neglible, if disabled - nothing changes.

It's GWT aplication.

Hopefully this has been implemented write in the above commit. You can try it in the next available 'next' snapshot. However I must confirm though: you are talking about role=presentation on the tables? NVDA treets the tables in your testcase as layout tables. You wouldn't have noticed them at all unless you'd explicitly turned on include layout tables in the browse mode settings dialog. This is okay to do of course, but its certainly not the standard config for most people. Just checking in case I'm miss-understanding your testcase. Now NVDA should be no longer announcing tables or any container with role presentation.
