NVDA doesn't bypass virtual navigation for read-only ARIA grids #5118
Reported by kloots on 2015-05-29 06:51
I raise this as an issue as for twitter.com we're rebuilding the timeline and we're going to express it as a single-column, read-only ARIA grid. The goal is to use this ARIA widget role in the interest of allowing the shortcuts for navigating the timeline (j & k) to automatically pass through once the timeline receives focus. This approach works great in JAWS, but not NVDA. I have attached an example.

Yes. How we're going to do this correctly is an open question which may require discussion with browser vendors, but one way or another, NVDA's current behaviour doesn't comply with the spec.
