Hi Darrell,

There were 2 new accessibility features added to v19:

  • <b data-stringify-type=”bold”>Accessible Lightbox Pop-ups</b>
  • <b data-stringify-type=”bold”>Accessible Custom Form Elements</b>

For the complete list of new features and bug fixes checkout the v19 release notes.

Regarding your JAWS/NVDA issue, we have a bug related to what you describe in our backlog. Hopefully we will get that fixed soon and out in a future release.

One suggestion I’ve heard related to this issue is to have the user trigger a read all from the top of the page by using  the key combination  INSERT + DOWN ARROW keys.


Hope this helps!
