VitalSource Bookshelf is an ebook reader which presents ePUB documents in brouse mode, and allows navigation throught the whole document.
It's evaluated with NVDA 2017.1 as 96.3% of accessibility in considered essential features in the EPUBTest: Reading System Evaluations.
When menus or dialogs are opened and then closed reading book documents, a pane is focused and it's needed to use manual procedures to go back to the document (presented in browse mode). This is really anoying.
I've tested an add-on with an app module, which focuses the document when a pane gains focus.

After reporting the broken link, a person of the DAISY Consortium suggests me to look at and then go to Accessibility.
I can't find the VitalSource Bookshelf for desktop now. I'll evaluate it with NVDA, as I've told to this person. For now I will use the add-on posted on the website, now under development, when it becomes stable.

I use vitalSource Bookshelf as my main ePUB reader, so I'll try to take care if future versions of the program make necessary other changes.
