I wanted to make a search by google. I typed some characters, then press arror keys to read them. But I could not hear the character under the focus. It just like The focus is seemed not to move. I also typed some Chinese in the EditBox, NVDA would play a error sound, but there was no error occurs.

I thought there was a ticket for this lack of cursor feedback in chrome, and that it needed an external fix from the authors of the browser.
However the particulare version you mention I do believe has other access issues which do not exist in earlier or the next version of Chrome.

The problem with cursor tracking in editable text fields is a bug in Google Chrome. It is fixed for Chrome 36. You can test it now in Chrome Canary.

If you're hearing an NVDA error sound, an error will have been logged. Please reproduce the problem and then provide the NVDA log file as described in LogFilesAndCrashDumps.

For some reason, I didn't see that you had already provided a log. My apologies.

As the first issue reported here is fixed in Chrome, I'm morphing this ticket to just cover the second issue.

Technical: The Chrome vbuf is assuming that all objects with the same window handle are IA2 objects, but this isn't the case for input composition/candidates.
Changed title from "The characters cannot be browse normally in chrome34." to "Chrome: Exceptions when entering east Asian characters"
