Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
When pressing NVDA+numpadMinus to move review cursor and navigator object to the position of the caret/focus respectively and the caret is inside the browse mode document navigator object/review cursor ends up at the position of the last focused object not at the caret position.
This is mainly problematic in two cases:
In long pdf's when there is no focusable objects - just a big amount of text - in this case review cursor ends up at the top of the document.
After "focus focusable elements in browse mode" has been set to disabled the focused element is a browser window hence moving navigator object to your position in browse mode is not possible.
Describe the solution you'd like
When moving navigator object to focus take into account position of the browse mode caret and set review cursor there - this would be consistent with other cases e.g. setting position of the review cursor in other editable text fields.
Describe alternatives you've considered
This is especially annoying for people who have set their review cursor not to follow caret - in this case it is impossible to set the mouse to your browse mode position without navigating to it with object nav from the top of the webpage.
The text was updated successfully, but these errors were encountered:
Sets the navigator object to the current focus, and the review cursor to the position of the caret inside it, if possible
I agree that the user intent that you highlight is likely to be more common than moving to focus. Moving to virtual caret was effectively how this worked previously. However, since there may be cases where the focus is of interest specifically, this should be introduced as a new command.
Given that this use case has regressed with the introduction of #11190, I will accept this into the 2020.3 release unless #11190 gets reverted for some reason.
Please start with a PR introducing a new command with no default gesture.
As a follow-up PR we can this new command becoming the default for for the NVDA+numpad minus gesture.
The regression here is the fact that for people for whom review cursor doesn't follow browse mode caret it is impossible to move object nav to the current position in browse mode. In all other places this is accomplished by NVDA+Numminus and I'm afraid introducing new command just for browse mode would be extremely confusing.
…. (PR #11376)
When moving review cursor to focus in browse mode it is now set at the position of the virtual caret.
Previously the navigator object may have been set to the document or some other object.
