Excel: Disable auto passThrough mode in Excel's browse mode by default #6569

merged 1 commit into from Jan 6, 2017


Copy link

Excel has a browse mode treeInterceptor, which starts in focus mode, so that the user can bring up the NVDA elements list without having to switch to browse mode first. However, at current, if the user presses escape, they drop into browse mode, which can be confusing and unproductive, especially when escaping too many times out of editing a cell. This pr ensures that autoPassThrough is disabled by default, meaning that focus mode is locked unless the user manually switches to browse mode. Escape will still work if switching to focus mode when pressing enter on a form field. This brings the experience inline with all other browse mode implementations.

…t, so that pressing escape before ever using browse mode does not drop into browse mode. Also ensure that NVDA disables / enables autoPassThroughMode on togglePassThroughMode for all browseMode treeInterceptors, not just browseModeDocumentTreeInterceptors.
