NVDA does not allow activating links that embed off-screen text in Firefox #801
Reported by vtsaran on 2010-08-02 00:42
where the text inside the tag is positioned off-screen and is shown when the link gains keyboard focus, NVDA does not allow activating such a link with an ENTER or a SPACE bar key.

Out of interest, why is there an off-screen span in that link at all? The title attribute should be enough to provide suitable text for the link. This is a case we might see elsewhere in the wild, so we should fix it, but it seems like strange authoring to have an on-screen link with off-screen embedded text.

I believe if the inner text was left empty, NVDA would not read the TITLE at all, unless queried with an NVDA+TAB key.
