NV Access Announces Release of NVDA 2014.1Hi,
This is something that came up during the FTF meeting in Jan as being a huge issue for web applications that included the roles dialog, alertdialog, and application without also providing supporting ARIA and labeling within the content regions.

Now, though Applications Mode is activated when focus is set within the bounds, pressing Insert+Space will activate Browse Mode within that localized region for arrow navigation in the Virtual Buffer, solving this long standing issue.

Thanks to Matt King and others for helping with this :)
