NVDA's support for Scintilla controls. is broken in alpha snapshots, if "line wrap" is enabled in the text editor #9424
Steps to reproduce:
With the up/down arrow keys, NVDA reads another line of text and not the one on which the cursor is positioned. This behavior affects only reading line by line - reading by word or character seams to be working as expected. The situation when reading with the mouse is similar - NVDA does not read the line which the mouse is pointing, but another one. And this occurs only if the "line wrap" feature of the text editor is enabled, so long lines of text are wrapped on multiple lines if necessary.
NVDA should read the line on which the cursor is positioned or the one which the mouse is pointing, even if the "line wrap" feature of the text editor is enabled.
Does the issue still occur after restarting your PC?
Yes, it does.
Have you tried any other versions of NVDA?
No, because this started occurring only with the latest "alpha" snapshots of NVDA. I guess this is probably caused by #9233 (Fixing incorrect text reporting when hovering mouse over Scintilla controls), though I might be wrong.
