in Internet explorer NVDA does not announce "Page Navigation" which is the aria label for the navigation region. This works as expected in FireFox.

It looks like we're not rendering text directly beneath role="presentation" in IE. Fixing this will cause that text to be rendered.

It's worth noting that NVDA 2014.1 doesn't have specific support for reporting landmark labels. NVDA 2014.2 (in development) does, and here, you will see the label twice: once because of the landmark and once because of the heading.
Milestone changed from None to next
